If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants are an excellent solution for restoring the function and beauty of your smile. Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements that replace both the root and crown of the tooth for a secure, naturalistic restoration. The dental implant is surgically placed in the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for the artificial tooth. Following a period of healing, your talented Lafayette dentists will place the dental implant restoration. Depending on your personal dental needs and on how many teeth are missing, your dental implant restoration may be:
- A dental bridge
- A full denture
- A partial denture
- A dental crown
Your dental implant restoration will improve your ability to chew, eat, and speak properly, as well as restoring the appearance of your smile. We invite you to call us at Tecumseh Dental Center today to learn more about implant dentistry and to schedule your appointment with Dr. Henry, Dr. Snapp, and Dr. Lecklitner.
