Dental Implant Dentist Crane, MO

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made from titanium or titanium alloy. These artificial roots can come in the form of a rod or a flat plate, depending on the location of the missing tooth and how wide the jaw bone is where the implant must be placed. Our doctors cap the roots with a dental crown, which replaces the missing tooth.

We have seen countless dental implant patients in our years of practicing cosmetic dentistry. First, we examines the patient's mouth in detail to determine if they are a good candidate for dental implants. Then, the implants are placed in the jaw. After the bone has completely healed over the implant, we place the dental crown on top, completing the process.

We recommend dental implants because they are easy to care for and attractive. Implants require no special care; patients can simply brush and floss them as they do the rest of their natural teeth. In addition, because the implants form a secure bond with the jaw bone, the patient does not need to worry about them slipping or coming loose, even when they eat sticky or hard foods. Because the dental crowns are specially created to look just like the rest of your teeth, they are also unnoticeable.

Call the office of Crane Family Dentistry to schedule your consultation for dental implants. Dr. Burpo will be happy to discuss your unique case with you and examine your mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for implants.
