What is a Dental Implant?
Dental Implants are a specialized dental procedure. Patients in our office who choose to have an implant to help restore tooth loss will be referred to a specialist whose primary focus is implant dentistry. Our work with implants comes after the implant has healed. Our focus then is to place an integrated restoration within the implant. We work closely with the specialists to ensure a great final restoration.
Use an Implant to replace a tooth in our St. Joseph office
An implant can be a replacement for a single tooth or may be the basis for a bridge. It can also be placed in a group to support a denture. Implants have a wide variety of application and a very high success rate. The healing process and bone integration for an implant takes time. This means a successful implant can’t be rushed.
In our St. Joseph dental office we recommend implants as a restorative option for our patients wanting a fixed, natural option to replacing a missing tooth, to stabilize a denture or complete a fixed bridge. Contact or call our office today to discuss your options for tooth loss at (816) 233-0142.
