Remember when being a gap-toothed five-year-old charmed friends and family? When a lisp was considered precious and endearing? Doesn’t really work for adults. Fortunately, we can replace missing teeth with dental implants, at Chesterfield Smile Designs in Chesterfield MO.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implants into your jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post. Once they are in place, they look and function like natural teeth.
Modern implants have been around for about fifty years. They used to be uncommon, but today they are considered part of mainstream dentistry. With today’s digital technology, dental implants can be placed in the patient’s jaw with nearly one hundred percent accuracy.
One caveat: you need to have enough bone mass to support the implant. Even if you don’t, there is a solution: bone grafting can give you enough.
Replacing one or more missing teeth with a dental implant can transform your life. To find out more, call us at Chesterfield Smile Designs in Chesterfield MO. We also provide a wide range of general dentistry services. Schedule an appointment with us today.
