What to know
When it comes to replacing your missing teeth, there’s never been a better option than investing in dental implants. Today’s implants are designed to mimic natural teeth in both function and appearance, restoring your smile’s health back to the highest quality possible.
What are Dental Implants?
Implants are biocompatible, artificial tooth roots that set inside of your mouth to support fixed restorations like crowns, bridges, or even dentures. Because your bone naturally integrates with the implant’s surface (a process called osseointegration,) it fuses the new “tooth” into your mouth with the potential to last a lifetime.

Tooth Replacement Treatment
Solutions for Your Missing Teeth in Slidell, LA
Because traditional tooth replacement treatments often rely on neighboring teeth to keep them in place, they can sometimes work against the health of your smile. Implants function independently from the rest of your bite, replicating the one nature intended.
Plus, getting dental implants is more comfortable than you may expect! The entire placement usually requires no more than a small amount of local anesthetic.
Single Tooth Replacement
Your implant is set into the area of your missing tooth. Once integrated, we affix an abutment to the top of an implant, which supports a new porcelain crown.
Multiple Tooth Replacement
Instead of wearing a partial denture, implants can work in pairs or sets to permanently support a longer dental bridge. Confidently replace 4-6 teeth or more!
Full Mouth Rejuvenation
When you need to replace all of your teeth at once, implant supported dentures are an excellent option to consider.
How Much do Dental Implants Cost?
Each dental implant case that Dr. Cambre completes is unique. Because some people only need 2-4 implants to replace all of the teeth in one arch, while others require multiple implants. You’ll want to have an individual consultation to map out the best treatment plan. The cost will depend on the type of restoration(s) you’re choosing, the number of implants, if adjunctive surgeries are necessary, etc.
After we’ve detailed which implant options are available, we’ll discuss how your dental insurance benefits come into play and additional financing options that are available. Although implants can initially cost slightly more than other tooth replacement treatments, they’re more affordable in the sense that they don’t have to be changed out every so many years.
