If you have questions about the implant procedure just ask one of our friendly staff members. They can tell you all about the procedure and what needs to be done. If you are a candidate for implants we will have you come in for a consultation first to see and then tell you about the procedure and what it will entail
Patients who want dental implants should have a few defining factors in order to be considered a candidate. The first is proper bone support. Without enough bone, the implants won’t have a place to fit or be placed in the mouth. The implant needs to fuse with bone so the tooth can be anchored for a permanent and stable base. This is where the artificial tooth is placed. If there is not enough bone for Lafayette dental implants
, a bone graft can be performed. In a bone graft, donor bone is grafted onto the jaw or taken from a spot on the patient’s body. Patients should also have good oral health. They should be without a current history of smoking or alcohol, and without conditions like diabetes or gum disease. Patients with these problems may end up having trouble with the implant and a lower success rate in the healing process.
Periodontal disease should also be minimal before having Lafayette dental implants
done. Daily brushing and flossing is crucial to keeping dental implants healthy and preserved for as long as possible.
