Are dental implants from Koch Park Dental in Florissant worth the cost? Absolutely!
A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.
The actual implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post meshes with the bone to provide a stable foundation. This is vital, because the root replacement post helps prevent jaw bone deterioration that commonly occurs after a tooth has been lost.
When the implant has meshed securely with the bone (it can take up to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (crown) is then attached.
The innovative dental implants available at Koch Park Dental are extremely versatile, and can be used in a variety of configurations. One dental implant can replace one missing tooth. A series of implants can replace more than one tooth or anchor a dental bridge. Denture wearers should know that implants can also serve as a sturdy base for partial or full dentures.
