What is tooth replacement?

Missing teeth can affect your chewing, speech, bite, and quality of life. Tooth gaps can also diminish your self-confidence when you smile. At Baton Rouge Perio, the skilled periodontists have many years of experience replacing missing teeth using personalized treatment plans and cutting-edge technology.

What are the benefits of tooth replacement?

Replacing missing permanent teeth offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Easier ability to chew
  • Clearer speech
  • Beautiful smile
  • Self-confidence
  • Less adjacent tooth shifting
  • Natural-looking teeth 
  • Low risk of complications 

Tooth replacement can reduce wear-and-tear on your remaining natural teeth and the risk of headaches and jaw pain. It also lessens the chance of jawbone loss.

Is tooth replacement right for me?

Your Baton Rouge Perio provider lets you know which teeth replacement options are best after discussing your symptoms, oral health history, and desired outcome. They review the results of your dental X-rays and ask about your goals before customizing your treatment plan. 

You should be in good overall health and a non-smoker before undergoing tooth replacement procedures. You may first need a tooth extraction or jawbone grafting if your jaw isn’t strong enough to support your new artificial teeth. 

What are my tooth replacement options?

Some of the teeth replacement options available at Baton Rouge Perio include:
