Gone are the days of having to live with a broken or incomplete smile. With modern dental implant technology, missing teeth can be replaced much more quickly, easily and affordably than ever before. With a dental implant procedure, our team of skilled dental professionals help patients restore their self-confidence and maintain their optimal oral function. We work closely with some of the finest periodontists and oral surgeons in the St. Louis metro area to ensure the surgical procedure is done safely and provides the best possible long term results.
Dental implants are small titanium prosthetics that are carefully placed into the jawbone, under the gum tissue to replace the tooth root of a missing tooth. Replacement teeth are later placed on the embedded titanium post to provide the most natural, durable and aesthetic replacement for your missing tooth or teeth. Because this is a surgical procedure, the team at Kennerly Dental Group works closely with the top specialists in the region to insert the actual titanium implant and once you’re healed our team of experts will help you ensure your new implants look and feel great for years to come.
Because the titanium implant needs to fuse to the jaw bone, complete stabilization and healing time is generally 3-4 months. During this time, your implant is allowed to firmly take hold before our dentists restore the implant with a custom abutment that will provide a strong footing for your beautiful new dental crown. Our office exclusively uses custom titanium, zirconia or all porcelain abutments fabricated specifically for each patient’s individual needs to provide the best look as well as long term durability and ease of maintenance at a price that you can afford.
Depending on a few factors – including look, feel and cost – our patients can choose from a dental crown, bridge or implant retained denture to replace their missing tooth structures. But one thing is for certain, if you suffer from missing or completely failing teeth, don’t hold off on this procedure any longer. Implants aren’t just about looking good, they also help preserve your oral function and health by maintaining the health of the jaw bone which, without a dental implant, could atrophy and cause the appearance of premature aging.
