Because people are living longer than ever and remain active well into their later years, having a tooth replacement option that keeps up with our modern lifestyles is more important than ever. Whether young or old, patients today want something that looks great and provides reliable functionality. The days of having to put up with sub-standard tooth replacement are over.
Being able to eat the foods you love is one of the greatest joys of life. Eating goes beyond pleasure and is a matter of good health. Some of the most nutritious foods are crunchy and require the ability to chew. Without reliable tooth replacement, you might face limitations with what you can put on your dinner plate.
Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth
Dental implants support the lifestyles that our patients appreciate and are accustomed to living. Why should missing teeth slow you down, make you self-conscious, or limit what you can eat? Drs. Smith and Domingue are experts in implant placement and restoration. Even if you think you are not a good candidate for implants, Drs. Smith and Domingue, encourage you to get in touch because they successfully provide implants for even some of the most difficult cases.
Implants provide an important service when it comes to retaining your bone. Once you lose a tooth, your bone may begin to reabsorb, destabilizing your bite. Since people are living longer than ever, retaining your jawbone is a priority. If your jawbone begins to resorb, it can cause tooth loss and even change your facial features, causing a sunken look.
Even multiple implants are no problem for our doctors. We can work with you on solutions for your biggest concerns and use multiple treatment options in order to get the results and the look you want.
Dental implants remain most sensible decision for functionality and ease of care. With diligent care and support from our doctors, your dental implants can last for decades.
Some patients are nervous about surgical procedures let those fears hold them back from treatment they really need and want. Fortunately, at our Lafayette dental office, we offer sedation for our fearful patients so you can kick back and relax while we do the work.
