Dental implants are used to restore missing teeth. It doesn't matter if you broke a tooth off at the gum line or you've been missing a tooth for twenty years. We can put a tooth back in that spot with a dental implant. A dental implant is an artificial root. On that artificial root we put a crown. We have a lot of patients that come in and maybe they've been wearing dentures for twenty years, or maybe they've just been missing a tooth for a long time. They just never got used to having it gone. It affects the way they chew or it affects the way they smile. Well, we can go in and we can basically put a third set of teeth right there. We can go in and put dental implants in to where they're completely natural looking, they have no feeling to them so they don't need root canals, they don't get cavities, they don't get sensitive. It's just like having your natural teeth again.
Are you looking for a reliable tooth replacement option? Our Prairieville, LA dental team offers comprehensive dental implant services including a variety of solutions designed to meet your needs. Dental implants can restore your appearance as well as your ability to chew. Below you will find short descriptions of each of the dental implant options we offer. Please feel free to contact our dental office if you have any questions or concerns with our Dental Implants Geismar and Prairieville, LA area.
Traditional Single Dental Implants
Single implants are designed to replace just one missing tooth. Dental implants are made of medical-grade titanium, specifically intended to offer a high level of strength and stability to the replacement tooth. We will insert the prosthetic tooth root into the gum and allow it to heal to your jawbone. We then place a crown on top. This combination will allow you to eat, drink, speak, and smile normally again.
Dental implants are designed to be easier to place than traditional dental implants. They are smaller in diameter and require less available bone structure than traditional dental implants. They also tend to be more cost effective. If you have been told in the past that dental implants are not right for you, ask about our dental implants. These implants may be able to offer you the solution you need.
All-on-4 and All-on-6
All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implant solutions provide a way to replace an entire arch of teeth using just four or six implants. We strategically place the implants to provide the most support possible. The implants are then loaded with a restoration. This solution is an efficient way to replace an arch or even mouth full of teeth.
Implant-secured dentures work much like traditional dentures except that they are anchored into the mouth using implants. We offer two different types: implant-retained and implant-supported. Implant-retained dentures use ball attachments to connect to the implants, while implant-supported dentures use a bar. If you need dentures but want more security than removable dentures offer, one of these options may be a great choice for you.
Immediate Implant Placement
In some cases, we are able to place dental implants immediately after an extraction. This option could allow you to get everything done in just one appointment. You won’t have to undergo multiple surgeries or go through multiple healing periods. We also may be able to place implant-retained dentures or dental crowns directly after implant placement. Talk to our team to determine if immediate implant placement or a same-day smile is an option for you.
