Sometimes a dental implant is the best solution to the physical pain, embarrassment, and limitations posed by missing teeth. For patients in Denham Springs, Baton Rouge, and the surrounding parishes, Hood Dental Care provides dental implants that will both look and feel like a natural tooth.
The process requires several visits for complete installation, but once completed, it’s an amazing fix and a great option when the dental bridge is not the right solution. A titanium post is used to provide a base, essentially creating a new tooth that the jawbone fuses around. This also prevents bone loss in the jaw, a common complication of missing teeth that can lead to further problems, including more missing teeth.
Your beautiful porcelain or zirconia crown is connected on top of the post, and your missing tooth problem is fixed! The crown will look, feel, and function just like a normal tooth, allowing you to feel comfortable flashing that full smile again. Dental implants provide a seamless transition back to bright smiles and full functionality, and no one can tell! Your secret is safe with us.
