Unlock your smile's full potential: Experience the confidence of dental implants at Melancon Dentistry, where new beginnings take root!


Regain the full function and natural beauty of your smile with our advanced dental implant solutions.

This can provide more confidence and a better social life. Does your smile embarrass you because of missing teeth, or do you have one or more that are missing? Today there is a better solution known as dental implants, instead of relying on dentures, as many have in the past.


Dental Implants – What are they?

A dental implant is just an artificial root, to put it in simple terms. It is set into your jaw bone and generally made of titanium. Then a porcelain crown is placed into the abutment screwed into the implant. Dental implants can give you a beautiful, natural smile, and they are solid.

Missing Teeth And Their Problems

Problems can be caused in your oral health, and bone loss is one of those problems…not just their unsightliness. The bo e tends to deteriorate where a tooth once was when it is missing. The sh lifting and moving of teeth that cause bite problems can also result from missing teeth, which can cause jaw pain and unnecessary wear on the teeth.

Would You Like A Younger Look?

You can look older than you are, the look on your face being altered because of missing teeth. Your f we can start shrinking and making it look like it is pinched together when a tooth is pulled or falls out! Saggi cheeks and wrinkles can develop over time.

Dental Implants are the best possible solution to replace teeth that are missing, even though partials or dentures can adequately address the issue.


Three Types Of Dental Implants

Dental implants come in three kinds. When someone only needs to replace one, two, or at most three missing teeth, then what is known as a single-tooth implant is commonly used.

An “all-on-four” is the second type of dental implant. Four I plants are placed in the upper and lower arch in this type of treatment. A set of hybrid dentures is molded to sit atop the implants once they are placed. A natural and very beautiful-looking smile and a much better result are what this type of treatment gives you.

The dental implant of the third type is very much like an “all-on-four.” In this instance, the hybrid denture is screwed into six implants that have been placed in the lower and upper arch in place of the four.

The absolute best results for any missing teeth will be given to you by dental implants, and the following are three of their benefits:

  • Your natural smile can be retained
  • They are a solution that is long-term in nature
  • Next to your natural teeth, they are the next best thing

Permanently keeping your teeth in your mouth is an added benefit

Dental implants could be a perfect solution for you if you wear dentures. Putting your teeth in a glass at night or messing with gooey creams will be past. One ag in enjoying your food and their varying tastes will be a joy!

We will be happy to help you fully understand all the questions you might have about the treatment options of dental implants that could best be suited for your case or particular condition. So please give us a call today.

Sedation Dentistry

For your convenience, we offer these three types of comfort and sedation dentistry:

Nitrous Oxide

This “laughing gas,” as most people know it, is used for simple fillings or routine cleaning treatments and is the most common form of sedation. Thanks to this simple form of sedation, your entire dental treatment can be a relaxing experience.

Sedation By IV

During IV Sedation, the patient’s vital signs are monitored throughout the entirety of the procedure, as the sedation is administered via IV. The patient will have been sleeping during the entire process, in this case, and will awaken only after the procedure.

Suppose a patient must return to school or work after completing the procedure. In that case, it will be especially beneficial for them to understand their need for sufficient recovery time before they leave.

Conscience Oral Sedation

We currently offer oral sedation for our patients who wish to remain conscience and yet come to us with gagging problems or a higher than average amount of fear and anxiety. Throughout the entire procedure, we closely monitor their vital signs once giving a combination of oral medications.

Once taking the oral medication we provide, the patient becomes highly relaxed and drowsy, and after their appointment, most patients remember nothing of the fear or anxiety they may have thought to experience without.

You will not be put to sleep with oral sedation, and during the entire procedure, you will be able to respond to Dr. Melancon and his team.
