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.
We Provide the Most Advanced Implant Treatment With the Yomi Robotic System
At Dr. Schlaikjer's practice in St. Louis, MO, we are constantly looking for new ways to improve our techniques, standards of care, and overall patient experience. One of the exciting technologies that has helped us stay at the forefront of restorative dentistry is Yomi®, the first and only FDA-cleared robotic guidance system for implant dentistry.
Yomi is a revolutionary tool that makes implant surgery quicker and more precise than ever before. We're proud to be the first dental practice not just in the St. Louis area, but in the entire state of Missouri, to make this technology available to our patients. Take a closer look at the ways that Yomi has transformed the implant surgery process:
Yomi offers response cues that help Dr. Schlaikjer have a better feel for the implant placement procedure than ever before. Throughout surgery, Yomi will provide physical and auditory feedback to let Dr. Schlaikjer know that the titanium implant posts are entering the jaw at the exact angle that's best for the patient's unique facial anatomy while preventing over-drilling past the pre-planned depth. The result is unparalleled stability for both the implants and tooth restorations they support.
Implant placement is a delicate procedure, and Yomi helps surgeons ensure that surgery is going smoothly, safely, and effectively. When an implant reaches optimal depth in the jaw, Yomi will provide an audio cue to move no further. Yomi can also help reduce the risk of human error by physically preventing the surgeon from deviating from your predetermined treatment plan.
Yomi's precise planning eliminates the need for traditional surgical guides, which can take about a week to prepare. This means that many patients can immediately undergo the implant placement procedure. You'll experience greater efficiency during surgery as well. With Yomi, Dr. Schlaikjer can place a full arch of implants in 90 minutes or two full arches of implants in two and a half hours.
Precise implant placement with Yomi means smaller gumline incisions that rarely need sutures to heal. While it will still take about four to six months for your implants to fuse with your jaw, the incisions in your gums can heal much more quickly than if your implants were placed using traditional methods. This equates to a smoother, more comfortable recovery process.
