Dental Implants in Webster Groves, MO
Dental implants are one of the biggest advancements in dentistry over the past few decades and are an effective, long-term option for maintaining a healthy smile. Unlike dentures, which require daily special care, dental implants are permanently attached to your jaw bone and require no extra maintenance beyond normal oral hygienic care. Patients are pleased with how stable and secure an implant feels in their mouth.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants are screws that are surgically placed into the bone. An oral surgeon will perform this part of the procedure, and with the advances in technology, there is typically very little discomfort. Once the bone and surrounding gums are fully healed, Dr. Wenzel will attach the crown to the implant screw and adjust the crown so it will fit comfortably and securely in your mouth.
