Dental Implants in Chesterfield, MO

Dental implants enable people suffering from tooth loss to smile with improved confidence. Fortunately, the use of dental implants will give you a renovated smile that is similar in appearance and functions to your natural teeth. Dental implants may be an apt choice if you have lost a single tooth or multiple teeth. At Licata Dental, we offer advanced implant restorations to restore your smile aesthetics and mouth functions.

Candidacy for Dental Implants

  • Patients need to have enough jawbone density and healthy gums to place implants. The well-being of these hard and soft tissues is significant for osseointegration and long-term stability.
  • The patients have to be in good overall health for the implant process.
  • Smokers should quit, and diabetes should be under control before undergoing surgery.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Matchless Stability

Dental implants serve as tooth roots and offer excellent stability. They will not slip out of the mouth like dentures and bridges while biting, chewing, or speaking.

  • Reduced Bone Loss

The jawbone loses tissues when the natural teeth are missing. Dental implants are the only restorative appliances that can prevent these adverse effects of bone loss.

  • Enhanced Self-Confidence

Patients with implant appliances can enjoy improved dental health, automatically making you feel good about yourself.

The Dental Implants Process

  • Assessing Fitness

During your preliminary visit to our office, we will take X-rays and scans and determine the condition of your oral cavity. We will also have a discussion about the risks and benefits of dental implants.

  • Oral Surgery

Dr. Licata will guide you to a surgeon to place your implants into the jawbone. Patients will be given instructions to care for the implants during the healing period, and Dr. Licata will consult closely with them every step of the way.

  • Osseointegration

Over the next couple of months, the dental implants will graft with the jawbone. This process, called osseointegration, will ensure the stability and long-term success of the implants.

  • The Abutment

Once the implants graft with the jawbone, we will place an abutment over the implant restoration. These tiny devices will connect the implant to the restoration and require minor placement surgery.

  • Fabricating the Restoration

The customized restoration, such as a dental crown, is fabricated in our dental lab. We will take care to match them with the existing natural teeth.

  • Placing the Restoration

Once the osseointegration is complete and the final appliance is ready, we will secure the crown for your dental implant.
