So, you have a missing tooth problem. It’s okay, there are a lot of patients that are in your shoes. Missing teeth can be brought about by many factors, but it’s important to do something about it. Missing teeth can be downright terrible for your oral health. There are plenty of reasons why, and we’ll get into those a little later. Missing teeth can be the difference between a healthy and unhealthy mouth. Those spaces that are left by missing teeth are like parties for bacteria to attend. Any type of bacteria that sits and gets comfortable in your mouth can lead to infections and other dental problems that can become quite costly and detrimental to your overall health.

If you’re missing many or all of your teeth from damage or decay, you know how important it is to have them replaced. A full, healthy set of teeth is essential. Maybe you have dentures and aren’t satisfied with the fit, or know you need dentures and aren’t excited about the prospect. At Dr. King Scott’s dental office we offer implant-secured dentures for a better smile restoration experience.
Dental implants are a secure tooth replacement method because it’s anchored to your jawbone by titanium posts. These posts bond with your jawbone, mimicking the root of a natural tooth. This is important because not only does it create a firm base for your restoration, but it also helps to retain more of your jawbone.
Maybe you’re missing more than a few teeth and are wondering what kinds of options are available for you. Implant- secured dentures are another great way we can use dental implants to help restore even more smiles. Since your dentures will be anchored to your smile, they’ll fit securely, leaving you free from the risk of slippage or embarrassing incidents.
If your smile is impacted by a lack of teeth, it’s important to replace them as soon as possible. We can help with dental implants and implant-secured dentures for a secure smile replacement solution. Give us a call to learn more and see if this is the right choice for your smile.

Dental implants are the most stable and sturdy way to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. If you have missing teeth, implant dentistry is a great way to repair and restore your smile. It is important for your overall dental health that you have a full set of teeth. Dr. King Scott’s dental office is here to help by restoring and repairing your smile.
It is important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible, because missing a tooth puts you at risk for losing more teeth or even bones. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, you’ll start by coming in for a consultation. Dr. Scott will assess the state of your smile and ensure that you have adequate bone density to support dental implants.
Titanium posts will be inserted into your jawbone where the replacement teeth will go. They will be allowed to heal as they bond with your jaw over time, creating a strong base for your dental implant that mimics the root of a natural tooth. Once healed, your dental implant will be attached to the post, giving you a complete smile once again. Your replacement tooth will be carefully designed to match your natural teeth, giving you confidence in your smile once again.
Dental implants are a great way to improve the function and appearance of your smile. If you think this could be the right solution or want to know more, give us a call. We’d love to schedule a consultation to see if dental implants can help restore your smile.

Are you ashamed of your missing teeth? Do you find yourself avoiding pictures, or even social situations, because you’re ashamed of the state of your mouth? The time for hiding is over! You should consider implant dentistry from Dr. King Scott’s office.
Dental implants are one of the best ways to replace missing teeth. There are two different kinds, dental implants and implant-retained dentures. Dental implants are best for replacing one or a few missing teeth, while implant-retained dentures work best for a few missing teeth all in a row.
Both types of implants will require a small surgery to attach the implant posts to your jaw. Once these have healed, Dr. Scott will attach either the individual replacement teeth or the denture. Since they’re attached to the bone, these implants will function just like your natural teeth.
If you have missing teeth you’d like replaced, please give our office a call! You’ll start by having a consultation with Dr. Scott, where he’ll go over your options and see if you’re a good candidate for dental implants. Then, he’ll create a treatment plan for you and you’ll be on your way to having a mouth full of healthy teeth once again!
Call us today to schedule your appointment or to discuss implant dentistry in more detail. Our West Monroe, LA office has provided quality dental care to patients from Monroe, Ruston, Rayville, Farmerville, Columbia, South Arkansas, and greater North Louisiana for three decades.
