Gap-Tooth Smiles Aren’t Quite As Adorable Anymore

Have you lost teeth? It’s a lot different than when you lost your baby teeth way back in the day. Unfortunately, these don’t grow back. But with a dental implant from Koch Park Dental in Florissant, it might seem like a missing tooth has.

A dental implant is a titanium post that is permanently placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. Implants can hold a single replacement tooth (a crown), or serve to anchor dentures.

The success of a dental implant hinges on the titanium post attaching to the bone. And this is the real beauty of it: titanium has a unique ability to fuse, or join, with bone. There’s actually a word for this: osteophilic, which means “bone loving.” This property has made titanium the material of choice for dental implants, as well as for artificial joints like knees.

Dental implants have success rate that is greater than ninety percent. The most common reason for an implant to fail is infection. That makes it critical to keep a dental implant clean. Plaque can build up on implant crowns the same way it does on teeth, so it is up to the patient to brush and floss every day, just like with natural teeth.

With dental implants from Koch Park Dental in Florissant, no one has to live with one or more missing teeth. We also have a full range of general dentistry procedures. Call us to schedule an appointment today.
