Are you missing one or more teeth? Missing teeth can hurt your appearance, making you appear unitelligent or unprofessional. Missing teeth can also affect your overall oral health and make it tremendously hard to chew. At Lapalco Family Dental in Marrero, LA we offer Dental Implants to replace missing teeth.
With a Dental Implant, we insert a synthetic root into your jaw. This is essentially a tiny screw, on which we can place a replacement tooth. We can also use Dental Implants to hold a denture in place if you are missing multiple teeth or all of your teeth.
Most dental offices cannot offer all the steps require of a Dental Implant procedure. Most will outsource your work to another office, or to an oral surgeon. At Lapalco Family Dental, we can perform all the work required for a Dental Implant at our office, saving you time and money.
Here are four other reasons you should consider a Dental Implant.
#1. Dental Implants Fix Your Smile
Dental Implants are the perfect solution for a missing tooth, or missing teeth. They are also an ideal option if you have a tooth that needs to be extracted, and would like to replace that tooth.
Dental Implants look incredibly life-like, and function just like a real tooth. Although a dental bridge can also be used for missing teeth; Dental Implants are longer lasting and make it easier to chew naturally. Best of all Dental Implants can last for decades.
#2: Dental Implants Prevent Bone Loss
Dental Implants are an important way to prevent bone loss. When you wear dentures, your facial bones start to reabsorb. That means in five years or so, you will need a new set of dentures for them to have a snug fit, and to continue functioning. Eventually, you may have suffered from so much bone loss that your mouth is no longer able to effectively use dentures.
Dental Implants prevent bone loss in the same way that your natural teeth do. Dental Implants help to support your facial structure, and improve your appearance.
#3: Dental Implants Benefit Your Life in Many Other Ways
With Dental Implants, you longer have to worry about using denture adhesive. In fact you no longer have to worry about any of the maintenance that dentures require, so as taking them out at night and cleaning them.
Dental Implants can also restore about one hundred percent of your nature chewing ability. That means you can eat what you like, without worrying about it being painful, or your dentures slipping off.
#4. Dental Implants Are Affordable
Don’t let the cost of dental work keep you from fixing your smile. Dental Implants can be less expensive over the long run than dentures, as they don’t need to be replaced every few years or require regular maintenance and care. We encourage you to run the numbers yourself, and compare.
