Are you thinking of having dental implants? If so, you have come to the right place! Our dental team here at Nasson Rodriguez in New Orleans, Louisiana, is happy to talk to you about dental implants and why they are important when it comes to restoring a tooth.

When a tooth is missing due to injury, tooth decay, or gum disease, over time you can suffer from bone loss. To avoid this predicament and other oral health complications, having a dental implant is ideal. A dental implant is compatible with our bodies and goes deep into the jaw acting as the root of a tooth, so your jaw stays healthy and strong and the crown over your implant stays supported.

After your dental implant is placed, there is a healing period. During this time, you may want to sip more drinks or eat softer foods to help your mouth heal effectively. Once the healing period is done, Dr. Nasson Rodriguez may place a dental crown over the top of it, to blend in with your surrounding teeth and restoring your smile.

Here at Nasson Rodriguez, we take your care and treatment seriously. Our amazing and professional staff stands ready to assist you for any of your oral health care needs. If you feel you have questions about having dental implants or wonder if they are right for you, please call us today at 504-364-1333 to set up an appointment. We will look forward to giving you a restored and healthy smile you can be proud of.
