O’Fallon Dental Implants
Dental implants are anchored into the jawbone, acting as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. A dental implant in O'Fallon can also be used to attach dentures. Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for a dental implant and place the implant into the jaw.
After the procedure, your jaw will need to heal for a specific period of time to allow the dental implant to take hold and allow the bone tissue to build up and anchor the device.
Not all of our patients are viable candidates for dental implants. A patient needs to have proper bone density to allow the implant to be placed in the jaw securely. Teeth implants in O'Fallon also require strict oral hygiene and regular dental care to maintain a healthy mouth.
Dr. Paul Burns, DDS can help you establish whether or not O'Fallon teeth implants are right for you. Not only do you lose chewing ability when you lose a tooth, missing teeth cause other teeth to crowd, creating other subsequent problems.
No one should have to lose self-esteem because of missing teeth. Dental implants have been used to replace missing teeth for more than 50 years and are an effective treatment choice for many patients. Contact us to learn more about dental implants, O'Fallon residents!
