Saint Louis Dentist Offers Innovative Implant Smiles Treatment For Exceptional Results

Written by Dr. Grayem on May 9, 2017

Tooth replacement treatment is a highly individualized and customized. No two smiles are exactly the same, so our Saint Louis dentists provide tooth replacement options that are versatile and can be personalized to suit the individual patient.

Implant Smiles All-on-Four treatment is highly effective and aesthetically pleasing. This treatment allows our dental team to replace a number of missing teeth—sometimes an entire smile—with just one treatment solution.

So how does it work?

Implant Smiles utilizes dental implant technology to permanently replace missing teeth. Our dentist places titanium implant roots in strategically chosen spots along the patient’s gum line. These implant roots will serve as the foundation for the patient’s rebuilt smile. Side note: did you know that implant roots are made of titanium because titanium is able to osseointegrate and bond to natural bone tissue? This means that over time your implant roots will actually help to support your existing jawbone tissue.

Once the dental implant roots are in place, it is time for our dentist to secure a dental restoration to these roots. Just a few implant roots are capable of supporting larger dental prostheses like dentures. In many cases, we are able to anchor a prosthesis on the same day that we insert your implant roots; this may not be your final implant smile, we often wait until your bone and gum tissues have healed post-implant-insertion before placing your final prosthesis.

One of the most amazing things about Implant Smiles is that the replacement teeth are customized to suit the patient’s needs and appearance. The shapes, sizes, and shades of your replacement teeth will look natural and attractive for you, as an individual.
