Before implants came into widespread acceptance, the treatment of choice that was available to make the best out of a bad situation was mostly root amputation or hemi section. Osseo integrated implants are being used in many areas of dentistry. St Louis dental implants are essential to meet the patients’ functional and aesthetic needs. It has had a major impact in periodontal practice. Teeth that have severe attachment loss to severe bone loss cannot regain natural periodontal form, function and appearance. Dental implants provide the opportunity to replace the missing teeth. St Louis Hills Dental Group dental implants have given a good long term success rate in the treatment of both edentulous and partially edentulous patients.
Sometimes young patients with congenitally absent teeth or traumatic tooth loss require ridge augmentation before the placement of dental implants. Immediate implantation after the extractions of molar teeth have been done that shows good results. This approach prevents initial bone loss, reduced treatment time and cost, better soft tissue aesthetics and preserves the bone around the extracted site. Care is taken to preserve the buccal cortical plate during extraction of the tooth. The dentists in St Louis Hills Dental group are skilled to study the bone confines through the soft tissue and then move ahead with the St Louis dental implants.
