If you are one of the 178 million Americans who are missing at least one tooth, or one of the 35 million who are completely edentulous, then you may struggle with your appearance and self-esteem, as well as oral health and function complications. Fortunately, if you are missing teeth in St. Louis, your dentist at ActOn Implants provides the most advanced methods in care to replace your missing teeth with quality dental implants.
If you are missing teeth in St. Louis, implants make it possible to eat, speak and smile with confidence again. Dental implants are the most advanced method of tooth replacement, recreating the look, feel and function of natural teeth better than any other option. An implant acts as an artificial tooth root, made of biocompatible materials, which fuse with the jaw to support a dental prosthetic. Implants are the only method of tooth replacement that address the issue of bone loss, which typically occurs after a tooth is lost or extracted. The bone that supports the tooth begins to deteriorate without the stimulation of a tooth root. Since a dental implant behaves in the same way as the root of your natural tooth, it preserves bone mass. Maintaining the jawbone preserves the contours of the face, to keep you looking your best. Whether you are missing one tooth, or all your teeth, your expert dentist will design your course of treatment to suit your needs. An individual tooth can be replaced with a single implant and a dental crown. A full arch of missing teeth can be replaced with an implant supported, which uses strategically placed implants to provide stable support a full-arch dental bridge. Your dentist can also use implants to support a removable denture. You and your dentist will discuss which options are best for you.
