Living with a missing or failing tooth is a challenge! You may find it difficult to chew and eat the healthy foods you once enjoyed because of your compromised tooth. It may also feel embarrassing talking or smiling in front of others. Dental implants in Lafayette, LA can help restore your smile and protect your oral health, but how can you fit the investment into your budget, and is it worth it?
Why Should I Invest in Dental Implants?
When you're missing a tooth it greatly impacts your oral health because your bone begins to deteriorate and your remaining teeth will start to shift. Without a root to support, your bone will dissolve, eliminating support for your remaining teeth and changing the appearance of your face. Your healthy teeth begin to shift into the open space, putting them at an increased risk for fractures or other damage. When your tooth has been compromised, it's a good idea to think about replacing it as soon as possible.
A dental implant replaces both your root and your tooth, restoring not only your smile, but also the function you once had with your natural tooth. It's designed to look and feel just like your natural tooth, and you'll be able to eat and smile with confidence once again. You'll also be able to brush and floss normally, and with excellent home care and regular dental checkups with Drs. Smith and Domingue, your implant has the potential to last for a lifetime, making it a sound investment in your oral health.
How Do I Fit an Implant into my Budget?
