Restore Your Missing Teeth… Permanently!
We understand how even one missing tooth can affect many aspects of your life – and not just your dental health. We get it – and we’re happy to offer a variety of options for tooth loss so you can find one that works best for you!
Dental implants offer many benefits over dentures or bridges. First, you can generally expect your dental implants to last 30 years or more with proper care. Most patients keep their implants for the rest of their lives, so once they’ve been implanted, they’re pretty much there to stay! There’s no wondering where you put them, messy adhesives, or concerns about dropping them and breaking them. You also don’t need to worry about replacing them the way you would with dentures and bridges – in the long run, they’re often the most cost-effective method to restore your smile.
Even better, dental implants look and feel completely natural – and they don’t require any special care. You’ll be able to chew and smile with ease, and no one will be the wiser. Often when patients experience tooth loss, they have other issues that pop up. The remaining teeth can shift, causing orthodontic issues, or you might experience bone loss. The dental implant procedure is also meant to address these issues, along with restoring your smile. Implants help support the bone by putting pressure on the jaw when you chew, which helps to prevent absorption. They also keep your other teeth in check by preventing shifting.
Is a dental implant procedure right for you? It’s best for Barton Hills patients who have overall good oral health. This means no gum disease or other concerns like tooth decay. Smoking can also interfere with implant placement and healing. Don’t have any of these boxes checked? You’re likely a good candidate! To learn more, schedule an appointment with Dr. Patel or Dr. Gaj. They’ll give you an exam and let you know your options. Plus, we’ll throw in a side of fun – complimentary at every visit! From refreshing beverages and Netflix to cozy blankets and lots of laughter, you’ll be amazed at how much fun a trip to the dentist can be.
