The Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth
Are you tired of ill-fitting dentures or feeling self-conscious about missing teeth? At Biggio Dental Care, we offer high-quality dental implants in Baton Rouge, LA, to restore your smile and improve your oral health. Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth, providing a permanent and natural-looking solution that allows you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a small, screw-shaped, titanium post that replaces the root of a missing tooth. It is covered by a porcelain crown that looks and feels just like your old tooth. These implants provide a strong foundation for custom-made dental crowns, bridges, or implant-supported dentures.
Dental Implant Process:
The dental implant process involves several precise steps to restore missing teeth effectively.
- Comprehensive Evaluation: A thorough examination of oral health and bone density is conducted to determine eligibility for dental implants.
- Implant Placement: A titanium implant is precisely positioned into the jawbone through a surgical procedure. This implant serves as a strong foundation for the replacement tooth.
- Osseointegration: Over the following weeks or months, the implant naturally fuses with the surrounding bone in a process called osseointegration, ensuring stability and support.
- Abutment Attachment: Once osseointegration is complete, an abutment is connected to the implant, acting as a connector between the implant and the dental crown.
- Custom Crown Placement: A custom-made dental crown is placed onto the abutment, matching the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth for a seamless and functional result.
At Biggio Dental Care we offer three primary tooth-replacement options. Depending on the number of missing teeth, certain implant options work better than others:
- Single-tooth replacements have the highest success rate, and because they will never decay or need root canal treatments. Single-tooth dental implants are the best long-term investment for replacing a single tooth.
- Multi-tooth replacements are similar to bridges and are commonly performed when three or more teeth in a row are missing. A bridge must connect to a natural tooth, which often becomes weak and starts to decay. With implants, the surrounding teeth are not affected.
- Implant-supported dentures replace entire jawlines along the top or bottom (or both) rows. These dentures lock into place so they will not shift around in the mouth or fall out during jaw movement.

Advantages of Dental Implants
- Restore Your Smile: Dental implants are designed to closely mimic natural teeth, offering a seamless and attractive smile restoration.
- Preserve Oral Health: By integrating with the jaw bone, implants stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss, preserving facial structure and overall oral health.
- Enhanced Stability: Unlike ill-fitting dentures, implant-supported restorations stay securely in place, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods without worries.
- Long-lasting Investment: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a wise and cost-effective investment in your oral health.

Mini Dental Implant (MDI)
Mini implants are a small-diameter implant used to stabilize dentures and partials, eliminating the need for adhesives. If your dentures cause discomfort while chewing or you are fearful that they may fall out while eating, talking, or smiling then mini implants may be what you need.
MDI mini dental implants are:
- Minimally invasive
- More affordable than full-size implants
- Can be used when patients don’t have enough bone for full-sized implants
Just like your natural teeth, with proper maintenance and cleaning dental implants can last forever. At Biggio Dental Care we ensure the longevity of your dental work by guiding you through the maintenance and care of your implants at each stage, both right after and long after the procedure.
