Are you missing one or more teeth? Missing teeth can hurt your appearance, making you appear unitelligent or unprofessional. Missing teeth can also affect your overall oral health and make it tremendously hard to chew. At Lapalco Family Dental in Marrero, LA we offer Dental Implants to replace missing teeth.
With a Dental Implant, we insert a synthetic root into your jaw. This is essentially a tiny screw, on which we can place a replacement tooth. We can also use Dental Implants to hold a denture in place if you are missing multiple teeth or all of your teeth.
Most dental offices cannot offer all the steps require of a Dental Implant procedure. Most will outsource your work to another office, or to an oral surgeon. At Lapalco Family Dental, we can perform all the work required for a Dental Implant at our office, saving you time and money.
Here are four other reasons you should consider a Dental Implant.
#1. Dental Implants Fix Your Smile
Dental Implants are the perfect solution for a missing tooth, or missing teeth. They are also an ideal option if you have a tooth that needs to be extracted, and would like to replace that tooth.
Dental Implants look incredibly life-like, and function just like a real tooth. Although a dental bridge can also be used for missing teeth; Dental Implants are longer lasting and make it easier to chew naturally. Best of all Dental Implants can last for decades.
#2: Dental Implants Prevent Bone Loss
Dental Implants are an important way to prevent bone loss. When you wear dentures, your facial bones start to reabsorb. That means in five years or so, you will need a new set of dentures for them to have a snug fit, and to continue functioning. Eventually, you may have suffered from so much bone loss that your mouth is no longer able to effectively use dentures.
Dental Implants prevent bone loss in the same way that your natural teeth do. Dental Implants help to support your facial structure, and improve your appearance.
#3: Dental Implants Benefit Your Life in Many Other Ways
With Dental Implants, you longer have to worry about using denture adhesive. In fact you no longer have to worry about any of the maintenance that dentures require, so as taking them out at night and cleaning them.
Dental Implants can also restore about one hundred percent of your nature chewing ability. That means you can eat what you like, without worrying about it being painful, or your dentures slipping off.
#4. Dental Implants Are Affordable
Don’t let the cost of dental work keep you from fixing your smile. Dental Implants can be less expensive over the long run than dentures, as they don’t need to be replaced every few years or require regular maintenance and care. We encourage you to run the numbers yourself, and compare.

Did you ever have a grandparent or relative who treated their dentures like toys? They would play jokes with their teeth and use them to really freak out the small children of the family? It seems as though everyone has a relative like that, and the stories we hear are absolutely hilarious!
Here Marrero, Louisiana, it seems as though dentures are a common solution for missing teeth. In fact, some patients don’t even know that there are other options or ways to improve their dentures! That’s right, even if you are wearing dentures, there’s no reason why you can’t also be comfortable, confident, and happy!
You see, dentures play an important role for many people, but dentures alone are not the way to replace your teeth. Let’s take a look at some of your options below to give you a better idea of exactly what is available to you!
The Trouble with Dentures Alone
With a little bit of help, dentures can function pretty well. The problem is when patients try to wear only dentures. Dentures alone just aren’t able to handle the movement and change that occurs after the total loss of teeth. Here’s the reality of wearing dentures full time:
Slippery & Uncomfortable – Dentures are often not properly fitted, which leaves the wearer in a lot of discomfort. The slippery dentures take away confidence and freedom to laugh, chat, and smile at will. Not only that, but the constant friction causes gums to become sore and painful.
Not Easy to Chew – Your natural teeth have a very strong bite force. However, when your teeth are gone and dentures are placed, you lose about 85% of your bite strength! That means you’re no longer able to chew the foods you used to enjoy.
Loss of Bone Structure – Your teeth and jaw bone work together to create the structure of your mouth. When the teeth are gone, the jaw bone will begin to lose mass, which will change the entire shape of your face. Dentures do nothing to stop this process from happening, which means denture wearers often look older than they are.
Dental Implants Solution
Dentures on their own are a trainwreck. Dentures with the support of dental implants create a solution that you really can wear comfortably for the rest of your life! Here’s the difference:
Effective – Dental implants effectively replace your tooth roots. There’s nothing else on the market that can do the work of dental implants.
Efficient – It only takes a few dental implants to support a full denture. You won’t need to sit through hours of surgery or months of painful healing. We can give you the stability you need with very little trouble to you.
Comfortable – The dental implants process is comfortable. Our patients tell us that getting a dental implant is no more uncomfortable than having a filling placed! Plus the recovery period is very easy.
Implant Supported Dentures Transform Your Life
At the end of the day, you are looking for a solution to your denture woes. You are looking for something that will transform your life from dealing with a terrible restoration to being able to enjoy life again. Take a look at some of the benefits of implant supported dentures.
Eat the Foods You Enjoy! – You won’t get your entire bite strength back, but you will see a marked improvement that will allow you to eat and enjoy the foods you’ve always loved.
Be Comfortable with Your Teeth! – You’ll never have to worry about your teeth slipping around in your mouth again! The implants will give you a secure, comfortable foundation for your dentures.
Feel Confident Again! – Feel free to smile, laugh, joke, and have a great time with a smile that looks and feels great. Your confidence will be through the roof with your new smile in place!
