Dental Implant Placement
One of the oral surgeries we offer at Smile On Dental Studio are dental implants in St. Louis. Since they look and function just like real teeth, dental implants are steadily increasing in popularity. Of all the tooth replacement options, they are the closest to natural teeth. They can even last the rest of your life with proper care.
We can perform your entire dental implant procedure in our dental office because we work with both a cosmetic and dental implants dentist. We take care of everything from the initial consultation, x-rays, and planning using CBCT technology to the dental implant surgery itself. Once the implants are surgically inserted, we finish off your treatment with a beautiful restoration like a dental crown.
All-on-4 Implant Dentures
Smile On Dental Studio is also proud to offer All-on-4 implant dentures to help patients replace an entire arch of their missing teeth with just four dental implants. This procedure is even cheaper, more efficient and comfortable than traditional dental implant approaches for full arch replacements. Most All-on-4 implant denture procedures don’t require a bone graft to place the four dental implants.
Our dental implant dentist and oral surgeon are well trained on All-on-4 and All-on-6 procedures to deliver high-quality results for patients with missing teeth. Visit us for all-on-4 implant dentures to replace all of your missing teeth. The results look and feel natural and last long.
Not all patients are good candidates for dental implants because they don’t have enough bone density in their jaw to hold the implants in place. In this case, our dental implants dentist will need to perform a bone graft to restore bone mass to the jaw. This involves using purified bone from natural sources or from your own body. Bone grafts allow even patients who have been missing their teeth for 20 years or more to finally have dental implants.
Although we try to preserve your natural teeth as often as possible, some patients may require a tooth extraction. Whether a tooth is heavily decayed or broken, or it’s the only remaining tooth, there are a number of reasons why an extraction might become necessary. Extractions become necessary when a patient has gum disease, infected teeth or trauma. If the tooth can’t be saved, we will remove it.
Some patients may need to have their wisdom teeth extracted. Wisdom teeth often cause complications when they’re not extracted in time. They may result in cysts, infection, gum disease and decay which can disturb neighboring teeth. Our dentist will let you know when your wisdom teeth are growing in so we can remove them before they cause any problems.
If you do need an extraction, don’t worry about having missing teeth. We offer a number of solutions to replace your missing tooth with dental implants.
