Choose the Best Solution for Your Smile

If you’re one of the over 178 million Americans missing at least one tooth, you’ve likely faced embarrassment and daily challenges. In the past, options for tooth loss like fixed dental bridges or conventional dentures were limited. However, today, you have far more options available. Dental implants, crafted from titanium, a biocompatible material, seamlessly fuse with the underlying bone over several months. Once integrated, they mimic the roots of natural teeth, offering robust support for replacement crowns. Dental implants stand out as the most versatile tooth replacement solution, capable of replacing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even a full arch lost to various causes like trauma, decay, or gum disease. From single implants to removable and fixed implant-supported dentures, our implant dentist, Dr. Bruni, offers a comprehensive range of dental implant options in Baton Rouge, LA, ensuring the restoration of your smile, health, and quality of life!

Fixed Teeth

Comparing Fixed Teeth Vs. Removable

In general, you have two options for replacing your teeth: fixed and removable. You’re aware of dentures, which is the bottom tier of tooth replacement. These artificial teeth are set on an acrylic base that fits over your gums. They return only 20% of natural function and will eventually become loose and ill-fitting as your jaw changes shape. A functional upgrade, implant supported dentures in Baton Rouge, LA are stabilized by two or more dental implants to restore 60% of dental function. They still consist of a removable acrylic denture and may crack or fracture over time.

Full mouth dental implants consist of a fixed prosthetic bridge of teeth permanently supported by 4-8 dental implants. This solution restores over 98% of natural function with teeth precision-crafted to look, feel, and function like the real thing. You can eat without limitations, enhance your quality of life, and talk, laugh, and smile confidently! We encourage you to consider all your options, then schedule a consultation to receive an evaluation and personalized treatment plan.

On the day of your implant placement, we offer several anesthesia options for your ultimate comfort. Dr. Bruni may be able to extract remaining teeth and perform bone grafting during this same appointment. Small incisions are made in your gums, then the required number of implants are placed underneath your gums in preplanned sites in your jawbone. At Pearl Dental Group, we use a top-rated guidance system that ensures each implant is placed at the exact angle, depth and location in your jaw with the densest bone for optimal long-term function. During this visit, we’ll provide you with a temporary set of teeth that look and feel natural so you won’t have to suffer another day with a missing smile. After your implants fuse with your jawbone over a period of three to six months, you’ll return to our office to receive your final customized restoration.

Invest in a Long-Term Dream Smile

Although they come with a higher upfront cost, dental implants are a cost-effective treatment when you consider they can provide decades or even a lifetime of oral health and happiness, with proper care. The cost of dental implants is based on necessary preliminary treatments and your customized treatment plan. Fixed full mouth dental implants cost more than removable implant supported dentures. Although most insurance companies don’t provide coverage for dental implants, some may partially pay for the crown component.
