Dental implants at Chris A. Mott, DDS in Shreveport, Louisiana provide men and women natural-looking tooth restorations that look and feel like naturally growing teeth.
Dental implants are small, sturdy, titanium posts that act as the root structure would for a natural tooth. Titanium metal is used because of its compatibility with bone and oral tissues. During the treatment, we place the implant into your jawbone, after which it can hold a crown, bridge or over-denture just like natural teeth are held in place. Dental implants can be used to replace anywhere from a single tooth to a full arch of teeth, which may have been lost due to injury, decay or disease.
