Do you find yourself avoiding laughing or smiling because you’re missing teeth? Is it difficult to enjoy your favorite foods because you’ve lost one or more of your molars? Having one or more missing teeth can affect your life in a number of ways, but you don’t have to continue living that way forever. At JL Dental in Arnold, MO, Drs. Jonathan and Laura Mears help people just like you reclaim their smiles – and total functionality – with the placement of dental implants.
Why Should I Choose Dental Implants?
Unlike dentures, bridges and other forms of removable dental prosthetic appliances, dental implants look, feel and function exactly like your natural teeth. You can smile, laugh, eat and drink the same way you would as if you had never lost any teeth in the first place. Crafted of only the highest-grade materials and custom-fitted to match your existing teeth, dental implants are made to last a lifetime. No one will know the difference, but you’ll definitely enjoy all of the benefits.
In order to ensure lasting structural integrity and optimal results, Drs. Jonathan and Laura Mears first place a small titanium post in your gum in the empty place where your natural tooth once was. This post will serve as the sturdy root for your new tooth and will gradually become fused with the bone of your jaw. A beautiful porcelain crown will then be affixed atop the titanium post, thereby completing your new, natural-looking tooth.
