Though some people choose dentures for missing teeth, they are only temporary and can be very uncomfortable to wear. With dental dental implantsimplants, you can have a full set of teeth again that will last and look beautiful for many years. Learn how you can go about restoring your smile with dental implants installed by Drs. Joseph and Nina Zeigler at their Saint Louis, MO dentist office.

Smile Restoration with Implants
If you’ve had to go any stretch of time with a missing tooth, you know how inconvenient it can be. Not only is it an embarrassing problem for aesthetic reasons (hiding your teeth when you smile for pictures) it also makes it hard to speak and eat normally. Dental implants are the smart alternative for patients who have healthy gums. They are small dental devices that are inserted into the bone tissue to form the basis of a new, permanently rooted tooth. Implant-supported dentures can be created for patients who have multiple missing teeth.

The Beauty of Dental Implants
One important benefit of a dental implant is that it is very nice and natural looking. After the actual titanium implant heals, it is topped with a porcelain crown that looks like a brand new, white tooth. Your Saint Louis dentist will color match the new crown to your smile so that it blends right in.

Taking Care of Your Implant and Your New Smile
Dental implants can stay rooted as long as the rest of your teeth. Here are a few simple tips that will help you keep your implant and your new and improved smile for as long as possible:

- Clean around and between each of your teeth with floss every day to remove food and liquid matter
- Stay vigilant about keeping plaque from hardening around your implanted tooth
- See your dentist at least twice a year for thorough tartar and plaque removal
