Love Your Smile & Teeth Again
Every year, millions of Americans are in need of a tooth replacement option. While there are many ways to simply “replace” a missing tooth to improve your smile, dental implants are the standard of care as a long-lasting, functional tooth replacement option. Implants preserve jawbone loss over time, and they appear and function similarly to any natural tooth. There are many uses for dental implants in Baton Rouge, LA. At Corkern Family Dental, we’re here to help you decide which option is best for you, your smile, your long-term health, ability to chew effectively, and your overall quality of life!
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants have been used since the 1980s. Essentially, they are like screws and are made of biocompatible titanium that replaces the roots of the tooth or teeth you have lost. On top of these screws (implants), we are able to restore caps (crowns) to appear just like your natural teeth. Implants typically take 3-6 months to integrate completely depending on your jawbone quality or health.
After the healing period, we place a titanium gum former (aka Healing Abutment) if we need to help shape your gum tissue for a few weeks. Then we take impressions just like a normal tooth and make a crown in our in-house lab that looks just like your natural teeth!
Benefits of Dental Implants
Permanent & Realistic Teeth – Enjoy new teeth that look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. As an alternative to dentures, dental bridges, or dental crowns, dental implants give you new teeth that are permanent.
Easy Hygiene – You won’t need to remove your teeth to clean or soak them. You will simply brush and floss them as you would your original teeth.
Freedom to Eat – When it comes to food, these teeth function as well as real teeth. Do you want steak? A caramel apple? Corn on the cob? The sky is the limit!
