Dental Implants

Dental Implants are considered the best option to replace missing teeth for many reasons we will discuss below. Missing one or more teeth can be both inconvenient and detrimental for your oral health. When you are missing a tooth, the jawbone beneath it and the area surrounding where the tooth used to be can become prone to infection and deteriorations.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a great option to replace missing teeth. They provide a secure mechanism to attach a denture or crown to. Unlike removable dentures, implants are secured into the jawbone with a titanium screw and capped off with a beautiful crown. The replacement crown is color-matched to closely resemble your remaining teeth for a radiant, completely natural look.

How do you care for dental implants?

Care for your implants are simple. You can eat all your favorite foods and are not restricted in any way (although chewing on ice or utensils should always be avoided). As with your own teeth, we recommend you continue to brush and floss like normal and of course, continue to visit Lafayette Dentistry for check-ups. With proper care, dental implants can last for decades.

69% of adults aged 35-44 have lost one or more of their permanent teeth.
