Restore your Smile with Dental Implants in Baton Rouge
When replacing teeth, dental implants are commonly considered the gold standard in modern dental restorations. Our Baton Rouge dentists at Premier Dental Care
provide implant restorations for Baton Rouge and the surrounding communities.
How Implants Work
Implant-based restorations place titanium roots in the jaw, acting the same way as the roots of natural teeth. Our doctors will place the titanium posts that make up the base for dental implants, eventually fusing to the bone due to titanium’s biocompatibility. The implant post then capped with an abutment that will ensure the crown restoration stays in place on top of the implant.
Once the titanium implant fuses to the bone, our Baton Rouge dentists will place a crown, matching the implant to the rest of your smile. These restorations are matched to the shade of your natural teeth, allowing your smile to retain its natural appearance.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
The artificial roots of implants provide the jaw with the same type of structural stimulation as natural teeth, preventing jaw resorption and malformation that regularly occurs when teeth are missing. This will not only prevent your jaw from changing shape, but will keep you from developing wrinkles around the mouth and losing the natural structure of your dentition. The 3D cone beam scanner used in our office and the high quality dental lab that fabricates the dental crowns we use ensure that patients with dental implants enhance patient comfort, never sacrificing bite function for aesthetic and stability.
Dental implants are also easy to clean, only requiring the same brushing and flossing as that of your normal teeth. Because of their durability, implants can last patients a lifetime, and can easily be restored should the crown restoration be damaged.
In order for implants to properly fuse to the bone, patients will require a minimum amount of jawbone density and gingival health. If you do not have the necessary jaw structure due to bone resorption or are experiencing gum disease, we will work with specialists to ensure that you can receive the necessary grafting or deep cleaning procedures to begin your implant restoration.
