Dental Implants in West Monroe, LA
Implant Dentistry with Dr. King Scott
If you’re tired of living with missing teeth, consider dental implants or implant-retained dentures. As the most reliable option to replace missing teeth, dental implants do not slip or slide, and if cared for properly, they can last a lifetime. In addition, implant patients never have to hassle with messy denture adhesives or unreliable natural suction. Instead, implant restorations and implant-secured dentures are held solidly in place with small, titanium posts anchored in the sockets left by missing teeth.
Dr. Scott can place and restore dental implants in the comfort of our state-of-the-art dental office. You’ll enjoy peace of mind knowing that the dental professionals you trust are in control of your dental implant procedure. Candidates for dental implants must have sufficient bone density and good oral health. Both of these issues can usually be corrected to improve a patient’s candidacy for the procedure. Dr. Scott works with oral surgeons, when necessary, in an interdisciplinary approach to preliminary implant procedures.
If dental implants are right for you, Dr. Scott will schedule a brief surgery in our office. He’ll place small, biocompatible implant posts into the sockets left by your missing teeth. These posts act as replacement teeth roots. After your bone tissue naturally fuses with the implant posts, Dr. Scott will secure individual replacement teeth (called restorations or crowns), or he can create a special denture that will snap onto the posts.
Multiple Benefits of Dental Implants
What can dental implants in West Monroe do for you? A lot, really. Take some times to consider the numerous advantages of implant dentistry, like a healthier jawbone, easier eating, clearer speech, and more.
A few of the most significant benefits of dental implants include:
- By replacing the tooth’s root as well as the visible crown, dental implants closely mimic the natural tooth structure.
- Because they are so similar to your natural teeth, good dental hygiene and maintenance are as easy as ever with dental implants.
- Easier chewing! Even biting into fresh apples and corn on the cob are possible with dental implants.
- Clearer speech without unexpected lisps or whistles.
- No worry or discomfort from an ill-fitting tooth replacement, and no need for messy denture creams or adhesives.
- Bite issues (like overbite, crossbite, and underbite, among others) can be improved with dental implants.
- Dental implants fit just like they should from day one and for years to come.
There are a number of benefits associated with dental implants, but perhaps the most significant is the fact that when cared for properly, they can last for a lifetime. Other tooth replacements require periodic replacing, costly undertakings that really add up over time. Avoid dental implant failure with proper dental hygiene, including twice-daily brushing, daily flossing, and regular visits with your dentist in West Monroe.
