Learn All About Dental Implants
If you’re missing one or more teeth or are struggling with wearing traditional dentures, consider dental implants. Not only do they permanently restore the appearance of your smile, they play a critical role in helping maintain overall oral health. Whether you’re missing one tooth, many teeth, or all of your natural teeth, Dr. Barras and the team at Barras Family Dentistry can restore your smile and your confidence! Read on to learn more about dental implants.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants can give you the freedom to enjoy your favorite foods again, maintain oral health, and restore your confidence to smile. Dental implants, unlike other tooth replacement options, are attached to your jawbone for a secure, permanent restoration. The implant acts as an anchor for a prosthetic tooth or denture and can be cared for just like your natural teeth. Learn more about dental implants and how Dr. Barras can use them to restore your smile.
What is the Dental Implant Process?
At Barras Family Dentistry, we incorporate advanced technology to streamline the dental implant treatment process and help ensure an optimal result. To begin the process, you’ll visit us for a complimentary consultation. Dr. Barras will speak with you about your goals for tooth restoration, discuss treatment options, and fully examine your mouth to determine the best treatment. Depending on your treatment plan, we may be able to place your implants in as little as one visit.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer a natural-looking, permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. However, not all patients will be an immediate candidate for this tooth replacement option. Luckily, there are several preparatory treatments available at our Lafayette office to help patients become suitable candidates for tooth replacement with implants. The first step to determining candidacy is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Barras.
