Is a missing tooth hurting your self-confidence? Without proper treatment, missing teeth could also be hurting your oral and general health.
Dr. Justin M. Schlaikjer can replace missing teeth, improve your health, and restore your confidence with dental implants.
Why are dental implants such a popular tooth replacement option among our patients in St. Louis, MO?
Tooth Loss Is a Common Problem...
... and Implants Are the Best Solution
Tooth loss is more common among adults than you might think. Missing teeth often cause patients to hide their smiles and feel embarrassed about the way they look. If your confidence is suffering because of a missing tooth or teeth, it's time to consider dental implants.
3 Main Benefits of Dental Implants
Better Oral Health
One of the consequences of tooth loss is bone atrophy, which can lead to a sunken and aged facial appearance. By replacing the missing roots of a tooth, implants help you maintain a strong, healthy jawbone and protect your long-term oral health.
Maximum StabilityImplants fuse to the jawbone and secure prosthetic replacement teeth with unparalleled stability. Unlike traditional dentures which rely on suction and adhesives, your implant-supported restoration will never slip out of place.
Dr. Schlaikjer offers implants made from incredibly strong materials including medical-grade titanium and zirconia. As long as you practice good dental care and attend regular visits to the dentist, your implants can last a lifetime.

We Can Convert Your Existing Denture
Do you already have removable dentures? Are you frustrated with the noises, movement, and embarrassing moments that can happen as a result? An implant-supported denture looks more natural, stays in place, and helps keep your jawbone healthy and strong.
If your denture is in good condition, we can often stabilize it using dental implants. Adjustments are made to the base of the denture to accommodate abutments and connect to your dental implants. You can speak with our dentist about this option during your consultation at our St. Louis dental practice.
