O’Fallon Dental Implant Dentist Recommends Dental Implants For Several Reasons

If you experience tooth loss, you will want to quickly find a replacement tooth that can meet your aesthetic and functional needs. There is one type of replacement tooth that is growing in popularity in comparison to dentures and bridges—the dental implant.

Our O’Fallon dental implant dentists have found that patients of many ages achieve exceptional results with dental implants.

Let’s talk about some of the reasons why a person might choose to pursue a dental implant rather than a different, more traditional, restorative option.

1. Boosts oral health

The dental implant root—which is a titanium screw that extends into the patient’s jawbone tissue—actually helps to keep your smile healthy. The implant root supports your adjacent teeth, and helps to keep your bone tissue from degrading (which is a real risk that accompanies tooth loss).

2. Looks and feels natural

The dental implant is as close as to a natural replacement tooth that dentistry has to offer. Once your implant is in place it will look like a natural tooth, and stay in place 24/7. In order to care for it, you will brush and floss your teeth and implant as you normally do. This replacement tooth fits in perfectly to your regular life.

3. Customized to your cosmetic specifications

When we create your dental implant, we will be able to craft the size, shape, and color of your restoration to blend with your existing smile. Patients love dental implants because they are able to truly regain their stellar smiles!

If you are currently dealing with a missing tooth, or multiple teeth, our O’Fallon dental implant dentists can help you reclaim a healthy and beautiful smile. Don’t wait to get the treatment that can put your oral health back on track. We look forward to speaking with you!
