Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants have changed the landscape of dentistry because they naturally, beautifully replace missing teeth. Kerst & Caskey Family Dentistry in Shreveport, LA, can use these implants to replace a single tooth or multiple missing teeth. 

Implants have two parts, a small screw that serves as the foundation in the jawbone and a restorative placement that replaces the form of the tooth. Over the years, implant technology has become quite sophisticated, and many patients can benefit from them. 

To see whether you are a good candidate for dental implants, schedule a consultation with our office. Call (318) 865-1600 now to book your appointment.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

First, we secure a titanium implant into the jawbone. Then, the implant fuses with the bone. Once it is secure, the implant provides a sound foundation for a crown, bridge, or even dentures. Together, they restore a stunning smile and the proper function of your teeth. 

The Benefits of Implants

There are many benefits to using dental implants. 

  • Customized options to suit your needs and budget
  • Long-lasting replacements
  • Improving your smile’s look and function
  • Improved oral health 
  • Replacing damaged of missing teeth without the inconvenience of dentures 
  • Reduced difficulty eating and chewing
  • Can improve speaking impacted by damaged or missing teeth

Am I a Good Candidate? 

We work with top professionals in the region to craft dental implants. They are great for replacing any number of missing or damaged teeth. If you suffer from missing teeth, require tooth extraction(s), or have problems with existing replacements, you may be a good candidate. 

Successful implants require strong bones, healthy gums, and a good oral environment. In order to qualify for implants, some patients require additional dental work. They may also not be right for you if you: 

  • Are an expectant mother 
  • Have existing health problems 
  • Use tobacco products

When you schedule a consultation with our dentists, they will assess your dental health. Then, we can help you decide whether oral implants are the best option for you.
