Dental Implants

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Permanent solution for tooth loss

Dental implants represent a common procedure of permanently replacing missing teeth without affecting neighboring teeth. 

With the help of dental implants, we can fully remedy toothlessness and thus strongly improve chewing and speaking abilities as well as restore a beautiful smile. Implants can also serve as carriers of a fixed dental bridge or denture.

DESIGNED FOR YOU

Can I get more than one dental implant?

Often yes, although it depends on the health of your gums and strength of your jawbone. Dr. Schuman and his staff can place several implants during the same visit.
If you’re missing several teeth or need your last few remaining natural teeth pulled, you could be a candidate for the revolutionary All-on-4™ or DIEM® implant treatment. This option allows you to replace an entire arch or both arches.
With All-on-4 or DIEM, your dentist will surgically place 4 to 6 implants in your arch. They can design a full prosthesis right in the office and snap it into place so that you can leave your session with a complete set of teeth the same day.

LONG-LASTING RESULTS

How long do dental implants last?

Between the titanium implant and the durable porcelain and ceramic tooth materials, you can expect your dental implant — or implants — to last a lifetime. Surrounding decay or tissue degradation can lead to problems, however.
For instance, if you have a nearby natural tooth that is starting to decay and winds up becoming an abscess, the underlying infection can damage your gum tissue. This can weaken the integrity of your jawbone or gums. Without proper treatment, your dental implant can loosen over time. While your implant dentistry treatment doesn’t require any special care once you’re healed, you must follow optimal oral hygiene habits to keep your gums healthy.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE?

Is a dental implant right for you?

Though this is a serious surgery, this procedure is the gold standard for restoring your bite when you have missing teeth. It’s only for those whose gums and jaw are healthy enough to receive the implant.

If you feel like you may be a candidate, and you’re in the St. Louis area, schedule a free evaluation to discuss this and other options.
