Dental Implants Baton Rouge
Missing teeth spoil the look of your smile. They also have a negative impact on oral health and overall wellness. Dr. Kurt LeJeune offers a long-term tooth replacement solution at Cypress Dental in Baton Rouge, LA – dental implants.
What is an implant?A dental implant is an artificial tooth root. It is surgically placed into jawbone, where it becomes firmly embedded in a process called osseointegration. The implant serves as an anchor for a crown, to replace a single missing tooth. Two dental implants can hold a fixed dental bridge, replacing up to three consecutive missing teeth. As few as four implants provide wonderful stability to a full denture. (As an added benefit, the top arch does not cover the palate.)
Benefits of dental implants
- Precision planning and placement for predictable results.
- Implant restorations look, feel, and function just like natural teeth, and require only normal care – daily brush and flossing, and regular dental checkups.
- Implant-supported dentures will not slip, wobble, click, or pop out.
- With good oral hygiene, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Zirconium: The natural choiceDr. LeJeune utilizes non-metal zirconium dental implants. This material is less reactive than titanium, and white Z-system implants do not show a dark line at the gum. Yet they are strong and durable in all applications and for any area of the mouth. The unique Z-system implant design and material is easily shaped in the mouth, similar to shaping a natural tooth to receive a crown. Because this is a single-component system (traditional implants have two parts), it is cleaner, with less risk of bacterial intrusion.
For many patients, dental implants are an ideal replacement solution for missing teeth. Find out more about this innovation in dentistry – schedule a consultation with Dr. LeJeune at Cypress Dental in Baton Rouge. The number is (225) 248-8400.
