Here, You Have Real Choices!
Single Dental Implants
Single dental implants are the longest-lasting replacements you can get for one or two missing teeth. They attach permanently to titanium posts, which are surgically implanted into your jawbone to become the closest thing to natural teeth. Each restoration is custom-made to match the rest of your mouth, so your friends and family won’t even realize that you’ve had a tooth replaced!
Implant Supported Dentures
If you’re looking for a combination of the strength of dental implants and the flexibility of dentures, implant supported dentures may be the best option for you. These fully removable restorations snap on to two or more titanium posts, preventing the dentures from moving around in your mouth without the need for adhesive.
All-on-4® Dental Implants
The “gold standard” of full arch dental implants, All-on-4 dental implants can last decades, or even a lifetime! They attach to a set of four titanium posts that are implanted into your jaw. All-on-4 implants restore up to 99% of your biting and chewing power, allowing you to smile with confidence and eat an unlimited diet.
The NuSet Patient Journey
At your first visit to NuSet in St. Louis, MO, you’ll meet with one of our trained patient consultants. Your consultant will give you a warm welcome and be with you through every step of your journey. You’ll then get a complimentary 3D cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan of your mouth and jaw. Your doctor will meet with you to look at your scans, discuss your treatment options, and answer any and all questions you may have. No matter what your situation is, we offer a variety of treatment choices, so you’ll never be forced into a single treatment.
Common Questions about Dental Implant Surgery
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is made up of three parts: a titanium or ceramic post, an abutment and a restoration. Built to function like natural tooth roots, dental implants provide bone support and a stable foundation for a single dental crown, a dental bridge, a denture or a full arch prosthesis.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Many patients are candidates for dental implants already, or can qualify after receiving preparatory treatments like bone grafting and tooth extractions. Candidacy is more accurately determined after a comprehensive consultation and evaluation with an implant dentist.
How much does treatment cost?
The cost of dental implants is based on many factors, including how many teeth are missing and for how long, the types of materials used and what additional procedures are needed. Our team can help you apply for dental financing, and we’ll even file insurance claims on your behalf to help you afford treatment.
How long is the treatment process?
Dental implant treatment can range from a few months to over a year. In many cases, implants can be surgically placed soon after the consultation and treatment plan are complete. For patients needing bone grafting, this may be a separate procedure requiring several months of healing before dental implant surgery. After dental implants are placed, healing can take three or more months before optimal integration is achieved and a final restoration can be permanently attached. In many cases, patients can wear a temporary restoration during healing.
How long can I expect dental implants to last?
Dental implants can last for decades, and they have the potential to last for the rest of your life. Along with your health habits, surgical technology and clinical experience ultimately affect the longevity of your implants. Choosing an experienced implant team like ours at NuSet Dental Implants and Oral Surgery provides more precise and accurate surgery that better guarantees the long-term success of your treatment.
