New Orleans Dental Implant

What is a Dental Implant?

A New Orleans dental implant is an artificial tooth placed in the jaw to replace a damaged or missing tooth. When you have a damaged or missing tooth, you have multiple options, but we generally recommend a New Orleans dental implant because it functions more like a natural tooth and it is the most successful surgical procedure known to man.

Step 1: Evaluate the Patient

The first thing we need to do is determine if a dental implant is right for you. We start by taking X-rays and 3D scans to determine if the bone and gums are healthy enough to support the implant. Though dental implants are superior to crowns and bridges, we have to make sure it is the right procedure for you.

Step 2: Extract the Tooth

Because dental implants replace damaged or missing teeth, the first thing we have to do is remove all remnants of the damaged tooth.

Step 3: Place the Implant

The next step is implant placement. We put you under local anesthesia so you don’t feel a thing. We drill a hole in the jawbone and then we place an implant in that hole. We stitch it up and we wait for approximately six months for the implant to take hold.

Step 4: Place the Implant

After the waiting period, we open the gums, and we thread an abutment into the implant which holds the new tooth in place.

Step 5: Thread the Abutment

Dental implants are incredibly effective at nearly 100% success rate. When you build strong employees, invest in state-of-the-art equipment, and take the time to hear your patients’ needs, anything is possible.
