A Reliable Solution
You can save time and money in the long run by choosing dental implants to replace your missing teeth. Dental implant technology has been evolving for over 50 years, making today’s teeth implants the most authentic method used for replacing a natural tooth. Drs. Leo Regan, Michael Casadaban, and David Bulot of Baton Rouge Oral and Facial Surgery & Dental Implant Center are well versed in this procedure.
Dental implants are made of three parts. A decay resistant titanium post is surgically placed in the jaw bone. Over the next three to six months, the post will fuse to the jaw bone in a process called osseointegration. The jaw bone is stabilized and preserved as the dental implant post acts like the root of a natural tooth. The abutment, or connector, piece is then attached to the post to sit atop the gum line. The third and final piece is the crown, which is secured over the abutment. This crown will look and function like a natural tooth.
