Are you nervous about smiling because of one or more missing teeth? Do you hide your smile in pictures because you aren’t happy with any gaps in your smile? If so, dental implants may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Dr. Susan Silvestri and Dr. Ronnie Deniger at Silvestri & Deniger Dentistry in Slidell, LA, are here to help you determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implants and if they could benefit you!

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a tooth replacement option that is durable and long-lasting and can complete your smile with a natural-looking finish. Your dentist in Slidell, LA, will implant a titanium post into your gums, which will then fuse into your jawbone, mimicking a root. Once the post is fused into the jawbone, it will be topped off with a dental crown. This crown can be color-matched to the rest of your teeth and no one will ever know you were missing a tooth, to begin with.

Before you can receive your dental implant, your dentist will have to determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implants. They will determine this by inspecting the area where you’re missing a tooth and check to see if the area is suitable to support an implant. They will have to be sure that your jawbone hasn’t deteriorated and can fuse with the implant.

Once you receive your dental implant, care is easy. Treat your implant as if it was a regular tooth and be sure to brush and floss daily. Another benefit is that dental implants can help prevent facial sagging from happening in the future. The titanium post provides stimulation to the gums that were missing after the tooth was lost. This helps provide support to the jawbone and stops it from deteriorating.
