D’Iberville Dental Implants

If you have missing or damaged teeth that make you feel self-conscious about your smile, Back Day Family Dentistry in D’Iberville, MS can help. We offer dental implants, an effective way to replace missing and damaged teeth.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically attached to the jawbone. The tiny, titanium posts serve as artificial roots. Once the posts have been fused to the bone, artificial teeth can be attached to the top. Dental implants function exactly like your original teeth, filling in the face and allowing patients to eat what they want without worrying.

How Do I Get Dental Implants?

Patients interested in Back Bay’s dental implants will start by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Parker or Dr. Miner. A thorough exam will be conducted to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. We use digital x-rays and model mock-ups to create a customized design and placement plan. Bone grafting may be necessary and a referral will be provided.

There are typically three steps to getting your new dental implants in D’Iberville, MS:

  • The first step is getting the titanium posts implanted into the jawbone.
  • The second step is the healing process called osseointegration, in which the implant literally combines with the bone. The healing process can be different for each patient and we will discuss your specific plan beforehand.
  • Last, the artificial teeth will be custom made and attached. Depending on how many missing teeth you are replacing, crowns, bridges or dentures may be used. Each patient is different and we will work with you to achieve the smile you want and deserve!
