Not so long ago, the only option for anyone who lost a tooth was a dental bridge. That is no longer true, and at Premier Dental and Oral Health Group in Lake Ozark we offer dental implants, one of the most significant developments in the history of dentistry.
A dental implant is a titanium post placed in the jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post. Several implants can support a set of dentures.
Dental implants provide many critical advantages over a bridge or dentures:
Longevity – Dental implants are durable and permanent, meaning with proper care they can last ten years or more.
Seamless – Fabricated to have the same shape, size and color of the original tooth, the implant will blend seamlessly with all the other teeth. If the original tooth had aesthetic troubles, these can typically be corrected with the implant crown.
Function – A dental implant functions like a natural tooth allowing for normal eating and speaking.
Convenience – Unlike dentures, no adhesives, rinsing, or removal is necessary.
Independent – Like the missing tooth, the dental implant is treated individually. No damaging of adjacent teeth is required, as with dental bridges. This independence allows nearby teeth to remain intact. Cleaning is easier than with most dental bridges which can require the threading of floss under and around the artificial tooth.
