Dr. Edward Logan and Dr. Emily Mack in O’Fallon, MO, can help you find out if dental implants are the right tooth replacement option for you!
Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
When you’re missing a tooth, it can really feel like your smiling days are over. Dental implants from your dentists in O’Fallon, MO, can help rejuvenate your smile and give you a smile that you can be proud to show off. This form of tooth replacement is long-lasting and can help restore proper function to your smile as well.
Dental implants consist of two main parts: a titanium post and a dental crown. The titanium post is inserted into your gums and left to fuse into your jawbone. This is done to replace the root that was once there. This helps keep your jawbone intact and helps prevent your face from beginning to sag due to a deteriorating jawbone.
Once your gums have healed and the post is fully fused, your dentist will create a dental crown to act as your new tooth. This crown is custom-made to match the rest of your teeth in shape, size, and color. It should look nearly identical to the rest of your smile and will be indistinguishable from others!
