At Charpentier Family Dentistry, we want to help each of our patients love their smiles. Tooth loss can be demoralizing and present practical difficulties. For patients coping with tooth loss, we offer treatment to help restore your natural-looking, comfortable smile with dental implants.
Dental implants are the preferred tooth replacement option because they are permanent, stimulate bone growth, and help maintain a more youthful appearance. Prostheses supported by implants do not slip or slide, causing discomfort and self-consciousness.
Dr. Charpentier is one of the only dentists in the New Iberia area who calls in a specialist to surgically place dental implants in her own office, instead of referring you elsewhere for the surgical phase. Our practice offers: singular tooth replacement; full arch tooth replacement with All-on-4® or All-on-6® dental implants; and other customized implant retained denture options.
With All-on-4® dental implants from Nobel Biocare, you can experience unprecedented comfort and stability in full arch tooth replacement. If you are a good candidate for All-on-4® or All-on-6® dental implants, you can expect to have your temporary teeth installed on the same day as your implant surgery! This “teeth in a day” treatment option offers the fullest return possible to complete, natural feeling teeth.
Are you missing one or all of your teeth? Regular flossing, brushing, and preventive checkups allow some people to maintain their natural smiles for a lifetime. However, sometimes our teeth just can’t keep up with our busy lifestyles! If you’ve lost a tooth (or teeth) due to injury or decay, dental implants could be the right solution to help repair your oral health and rejuvenate your smile.
Dental implants are well suited to patients who are in good general health, who have enough bone density in the jaw to support them, and who do not have periodontal disease. If you are wondering if you would be a good candidate, call our New Iberia office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Charpentier.
Modern tooth restoration has never been better! A dental implant is a titanium screw that acts as an artificial “tooth root”, providing a secure support to permanently anchor your new tooth, bridge or denture.
Dental implants are surgically embedded into the jaw bone, fusing to it over time and stimulating new bone growth. This keeps your jaw healthier, and helps maintains the shape of your face. During the healing phase, patients wear a temporary prosthesis. Once your mouth is ready, an abutment is used to connect your permanent prosthesis to the implant.
Problems with dental implants are rare, but they do happen. If you notice your dental implant has loosened, is causing your gum to swell, or the crown on top of your implant is cracked, call Charpentier Family Dentistry right away! A dental implant can’t fix itself and if you try to treat it yourself, you could end up causing more damage to your mouth.
A consultation with Dr. Charpentier is the perfect way to answer all of your questions and determine if dental implants or overdentures could be the best solution for your smile. Call our New Iberia dental practice today for more details on dental implants or any of the other services we offer!
