Tooth Implant - Picayune

Tooth Implant Dentistry in the Picayune Area: When a Bridge or a Denture Just Isn't Enough

A tooth implant can be a more natural-looking and permanent solution to a missing or damaged tooth than dentures, which can be difficult for many people to adust to.

Picayune area dentist Dr. Robert Rooney has the experience and training to help replace missing teeth with permanent dental implants that look, feel and function just like your natural teeth.

Many people in the Picayune area can easily qualify for implant dentistry. Having jawbone ridges in good shape and healthy oral tissues will allow the tooth replacement to form a strong permanent bond with your jawbone. Contact us today to see if you're a candidate.

Our office will initially refer you to a local specialist who will surgically implant a metal anchor into your jawbone. Once that's healed, Dr. Rooney will place a beautiful new porcelain crown on the anchor. Your new implant will look just like it's one of your natural teeth.

At Robert J. Rooney, D.D.S. we're committed to working with you to find affordable options. Don't let concerns about the cost of dental implants keep you from considering this beautiful and permanent solution to your dental problems.

It's easy to make an appointment right now. Just call our helpful staff at (985) 641-6607 or complete our easy online form. Now is the best time to get the top dental care you deserve - we're looking forward to meeting you!

All on Four

The All-on-4 is the modern solution for all missing teeth.

If you have lost all your teeth, unsecured traditional dentures are a solution which in many cases has limited success. At times painful, inconvenient and instable, such dentures can make chewing food difficult, which could stop you from eating many of the foods you once enjoyed. However, modern oral surgery has solutions to suite a variety of needs. The All-on-4 treatment option is one such solution.

The All-on-4 treatment concept replaces your missing teeth wtih a full dental bridge supported by only four dental implants. With less implants needed, overall treatment time is reduced. The unique All-on-4 solution also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume.

Typically, your dentist can place temprorary provisional teeth on the same day after treatment. These provisional teeth look and feel much like natural teeth, and you can lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After a few weeks healing time, your dentist will place your final bridge. Your quality of life is improved, and you can start enoying your favorite foods again.

Dental implants offer you many advantages:

■A cost effective solution. Your new replacement teeth require only four implants for each jaw. With fewer implants required, the cost is lowered.

■Reduced need for bone grafting. The special tilting of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced arch, typically making bone grafting unnecessary.

■Faster treatment and healing time. Your replacement arch can be attached to your implants immediately after insertion. There is no need to wait for healing time between surgery and tooth replacement.

■Flexible options. You can choose a final prosthetic solution that is best for you, such as a fixed option (one with highest durability and chewing function, but cannot be removed) or a removable option (can be removed by you for easy cleaning).

■Scientifically proven and documented. All-on-4 is supported by good clinical outcomes from studies in which four implants have been inserted to support a full replacement arch. The tilting of implants has been used in clinical practice for over a decade wtih favorable results.

Mouthguards

At Robert J. Rooney, D.D.S. we recommend that a mouthguard be part of every athlete's gear, no matter the sport. Parents should make sure their children are protected. Even adults and weekend athletes need to protect their smiles and preserve their health. Wear a mouthguard at all times when playing sports. It’s always best to wear a mouthguard custom-fitted by your dentist, especially if you wear bridges or braces. Don’t wear removable appliances like retainers when playing sports.

If you have any questions about dental health for athletes, please call our office at (855) 402-0647 and we’ll be happy to help you find the answers.

Diet and Dental Health

Diets low in certain nutrients can reduce resistance to oral and dental infections including gum disease and tooth decay. A healthy immune system is essential to controlling periodontal disease. Counseling in the Four Basic Food groups will improve dental health and general health.

The consumption of sugar, especially in sticky forms or in a baby bottle while sleeping, contributes to the rapid development of dental decay. Dr. Rooney believes that a balanced diet, effective brushing and sensible eating habits can reduce the risk of, or even prevent, infectious dental disease. If you need more information on how a healthy diet can improve your dental health, please don't hesitate to call Robert J. Rooney, D.D.S. at (855) 402-0647.

When Should My Child First See a Dentist?

'First visit by first birthday' sums it up. Your child should visit a dentist when the first tooth comes in, usually between six and twelve months of age. Early examination and preventive care will protect your child's smile now and in the future. If you have questions regarding your baby's teeth, please call Robert J. Rooney, D.D.S. at (855) 402-0647 and we’ll be glad to provide the answers.
