Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

If you live in Estelle or anywhere in the greater New Orleans area, Southern Dental Care’s implants may be the solution to your decayed, injured, or missing teeth. A dental implant begins with a titanium post, which acts as an artificial tooth root. This post is placed into your jawbone during surgery, and it is used to secure a permanent replacement tooth. The best part is that dental implants look and feel like natural teeth!

Patients used to need dentures or bridges to deal with missing teeth, but dental implants can offer you many advantages that these other procedures cannot, which is why Southern Dental Care is proud to offer patients in Estelle dental implants. For more information about whether dental implants are right for you, read more from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry or consult with Southern Dental Care.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

If you have missing teeth or teeth that require removal, there are many reasons why it’s important to replace missing teeth. Although dentures, partials, and bridges have their uses, there are many benefits you can expect when you replace missing teeth with dental implants:

  • Natural appearance — Dental implants are made to match the color of your natural teeth. They are also infused with bone to create an incredibly natural appearance.
  • Confidence — Damaged or missing teeth can take a toll on your self esteem. Replacing your teeth with dental implants can help restore your confidence.
  • Comfort — In addition to looking like natural teeth, dental implants feel like natural teeth. They are permanently fixed in your mouth that won’t slip like dentures. This security allows you to maintain normal speech and eating habits.
  • Health — Missing, injured, or decayed teeth can cause you pain and poor dental health. Dental implants can resolve these issues without disrupting other teeth the way dentures and bridges sometimes do.

What Is the Process for Dental Implants?

If you and your dentist decide on dental implants, you might be wondering about the procedure. At Southern Dental Care, we use local anesthetic to help keep you comfortable during your surgery. Typically, we begin by removing the root of the damaged or missing tooth, then replace it with the titanium post of your implant. You will need to deal for 6 to 12 months before we can complete the procedure.
After your healing period, we attach an additional connector post to your initial post and secure your replacement tooth. Once we finish, our specialists will give you any aftercare instructions you need to finish recovering.
