We know you have seen the commercials with dental implant specialists offering miracles. While some of those promises may be far-fetched, implants do offer a way to dramatically improve your quality of life through increased function, greater convenience, and improved aesthetics.
Implants for Increased Function
Simply put, missing teeth makes eating and speaking more difficult. The simple act of maintaining good manners while eating or speaking with missing teeth can pose a challenge even for the most conscientious patients. Life is stressful enough already without embarrassing moments getting in the way! Dental implants improve your experience by permanently filling in the gaps in your smile so you can speak and eat normally.
Dental implants take function one step further by helping to maintain your bone structure. Because implants are rooted in your bone, they create greater stability for your remaining teeth and jaw. They may even prevent future tooth loss!
Convenient Solutions for Missing Teeth
Keeping your teeth and gums healthy is essential to the long-term success of any dentistry and dental implants are no exception.
Single dental implants are so much like your natural teeth that caring for them is simple. You can brush and floss normally, without the need for special flosses and tools to get the job done. For implant-supported bridges and dentures, we can discuss any special care required. With diligent home care and routine exams and cleanings, your dental implants can last many years.
Implants for Cosmetic Dentistry
Dental implants can dramatically improve your appearance permanently. When you visit our Lafayette dental office with concerns about how your teeth look, we will recommend a treatment plan that addresses your main concerns. If one of those concerns is missing teeth, you may be a great candidate for dental implants. Not only do implants restore the beauty of your smile, but they also help to maintain the shape of your facial structure as well.
