Looking for Information About Dental Implants in St Louis?
Here’s the #1 Reason to Consider Denture Implants or Dental Implants for Missing TeethIf you’ve considered st louis dental implants for missing teeth or denture implants, then you landed in the right place. The purpose of this website is to answer all your questions about dental implants.
Hi. I’m St Louis dentist Dr. Peter Pagano and I just celebrated thirty-five years of practicing dentistry in Creve Coeur. Since 1990, I’ve helped hundreds of patients around St Louis with dental implants and seen them experience the truly life-changing benefits of a healthy, attractive, comfortable smile!
There’s one reason for dental implants that stands above the rest. Unfortunately, it’s not talked about as much as it should be. And it’s a benefit you don’t get with other tooth replacement options:
Dental Implants Prevent the Bone Loss That Triggers a Series of Unhealthy, Age-Accelerating EventsLet me explain: when a missing tooth isn’t replaced, the jawbone that once supported that tooth no longer has a purpose. It begins to shrink. What comes next is:
1. Your teeth begin to shift;
2. The burden of chewing is shifted to other teeth, causing them to wear down faster;
3. Within 4-8 years, up to 20% of your teeth will be lost;
4. The bone shrinks, leading to a collapsing facial appearance.
Just ONE missing tooth can trigger these four events. Without a solid foundation of bone which is supported by teeth, your facial structure slowly takes on that collapsed sagging look we associate with aging.
Dental implants are the high-tech solution to tooth replacement. Sure, I still offer all of the “old technology” options to my patients, as I have for 35 years. For some people, dental implants aren't the right treatment option. Crown and bridge, flippers and framework partials are still valid options for tooth replacement. You’ll find an in-depth comparison on this site on dental implants vs bridges so you can compare their costs and benefits to dental implants.
