Missing teeth aren’t just a cosmetic problem. When you lose teeth, it can cause a recessed mouth and chin from bone loss in the jaw. You may have problems with speech or eating. Dentures are one option for missing teeth, but dental implants could be a better option that will give you more confidence and a healthy, smile. Barnhart Dental is here to help you with your dental care needs.
Are Implants For You?
Dental implants can replace one lost tooth or up to a full arch. Instead of wearing dentures or having a bridge, implants are permanent replacements. The dentist inserts a titanium post into your jaw, where the root of the tooth once was. The replacement tooth is attached to the post. It matches your natural teeth, so it appears normal. Only you and your Vienna, MO dental team will know that your teeth aren’t your own.
Ask Your Dentist
Most people are good candidates for dental implants. The Journal of Oral Implantology suggests the use of implants has around a 98 percent success rate. Make an appointment with Dr. Joseph and Dr. John Barnhart to learn more about your options for replacing your lost teeth. Have a beautiful smile that functions as your own natural teeth.
