Dental Implants

Tooth loss affects millions of American adults every year. Living with missing teeth can make almost every aspect of life more difficult, from biting and chewing to speaking clearly and socializing with confidence. 

 

Fortunately, there is a permanent solution to tooth loss at Cowley Dental Care in Metairie, Louisiana. Our dentists restore dental implants using the highest quality materials and advanced technologies so you can enjoy a lasting, healthy smile. 

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are permanent tooth root replacements used to restore missing teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants do not slip or slide around in the mouth because they are surgically placed in the jaw. They also don’t require specialized daily care, which means you can truly treat them just like natural teeth. 

Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not require any alterations to any remaining natural teeth. However, dental implants can be utilized to support bridges, resulting in increased stability. 

Expert Treatment for Dental Implant Complications

Dental implants have over a 95% success rate and are the gold standard for replacing teeth that have been lost. If you are in need of any dental implant work or are interested in dental implants to replace lost teeth, Drs. Cowley and Roth are happy to help. 

Our team of doctors is also experienced and skilled at making repairs and adjustments if implant complications occur. Using advanced diagnostic tools, we can determine the most effective treatment to restore your implant to its full stability, function, and health. 

Common Dental Implant Types

At Cowley Dental Care, we use only the best quality materials for our different types of crowns, including all-ceramic, zirconia, and EMAX. If you have a broken cap or need an implant adjustment, our dentists will do everything they can to help you restore your smile. 

Common dental implant issues can include:

#1 Broken or Chipped Crown 

If a crown chips or breaks, it’s important to have your dentist repair it as soon as possible. We can repair the replacement teeth, ensuring that your smile remains fully functional and attractive. 

#2 Poor-Fitting Crown

Dental crowns can sometimes become loose, or they may fit too tightly against adjacent teeth. Loose crowns can result in food and bacteria buildup, and tight crowns can result in breakage. We can easily replace poor-fitting crowns with beautiful replacement crowns that fit perfectly. 

#3 Irregularly Shaded or Shaped Crown

If you’re unhappy with the shade or shape of your crown, we can replace them with one that seamlessly blends in with your smile. 

Customized, Thorough Treatment 

Cowley Dental Care tailors its treatment based on each patient’s unique needs, including those in need of dental implant care. Our entire team will ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy through regular cleanings and exams at our dental office.
