Dental Implants in New Orleans
If you need to replace one or more teeth, dental implants can help you achieve stronger, more stable results. This special option combines a custom-made prosthetic with one or more titanium implants, mimicking your smile's natural structure in a way that traditional bridges and dentures don't. As a result you can look forward to better oral health and wellbeing, plus improved confidence.
One or more implant posts will be placed in your jaw via surgery. Afterwards, as your mouth heals, your implant(s) will fuse with your jawbone in much the same way that a natural root fuses with your jawbone. The result will be a solid foundation for your new restoration.
While personalized crowns are the restorative choice for single tooth implants, patients with traditional dentures can have their prosthetic strengthened and stabilized with the power of implants. Once a certain number of implants have been carefully and precisely inserted into your jaw, they will hold your denture securely in place, eliminating the need for dental adhesive, improving your ability to chew, and giving you back the confidence you deserve. Implants can even help patients look younger by keeping the jawbone healthy and maintaining your facial structures!
