Talks About What You Can Expect From Dental Implant Surgery

Long-Lasting, Life-Changing Dental Implants

If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be struggling to bite and chew or feel embarrassed to talk, laugh, and socialize. Missing most or all your teeth can result in changes in your facial appearance, a decline in your health, and increased discomfort and/or self-consciousness. Dental implants offer the best possible solution to this problem, they are fixed to your jawbone ensuring the bone does not recess or shift. We are able to replace your tooth or teeth with an implant that will be indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth for the most natural looking replacement option. Our team at ArkLaTex Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is experienced in providing dental implants in Northwest Louisiana, and can help you achieve a new smile and quality of life with this permanent solution.

The Characteristics of a Dental Implant

This permanent solution requires the precision of skilled oral surgeons and advanced surgical technology to optimize the outcomes of your treatment and its long-term success. Our team routinely provides dental implant treatment across a variety of cases, utilizing state-of-the-art technologies and high-quality materials for the best results. With our expertise, we can help you experience a life of health, function, and confidence with dental implants in Northwest Louisiana!

Your Custom Dental Implant Options

Dental implants can support a single dental crown or a dental bridge to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Dental implants can also be used to increase the stability of a modified denture, which snaps securely to the implants placed in the jawbone. For patients with many or all missing teeth, dental implants can permanently support a full, fixed bridge of artificial teeth. This solution makes it possible to eat any type of food with life-like, strong teeth. In all cases, dental implants improve your ability to eat comfortably, feel confident in a complete smile, and live an overall healthier and better quality of life.

Your dental implant treatment at ArkLaTex Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is personalized to your specific oral health needs and smile goals.

Our Dental Implant Treatment Process

Your dental implant treatment at ArkLaTex Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is personalized to your specific oral health needs and smile goals. You’ll first complete a consultation with our implant oral surgeon in Northwest Louisiana, where we’ll discuss your dental and medical history, take digital X-rays, and create a custom treatment plan. Following that, you’ll undergo your long-awaited surgery which may involve extracting teeth or bone grafting to go along with the placement of your new implants. This will be done while you are sedated comfortably and resting painlessly during the procedure. Normally, we are able to attach a temporary tooth or set of teeth during the procedure which will allow you to eat normally as you recover from the surgery and await your permanent tooth or teeth.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants offer numerous benefits over alternative replacement options. For example, bridges require healthy teeth to be able to work as designed, which presents a problem for anyone who has decaying or missing teeth, whereas implants need only a healthy jawbone to function properly. They are permanently fixed and stable enough to restore over 99% of natural biting and chewing power. For this reason, implants are one of the preferred solutions and virtually all patients who come to ArkLaTex Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery are candidates for dental implants.
