Dental Implants

illustration of dental implant | dentist in saint paul mnA dental implant is a restoration that replaces a missing tooth. It comes in three basic pieces:

  • The implant, which is surgically placed into your jawbone
  • The abutment, which connects the implant to your restoration
  • The restoration, which fills in the space left by the missing tooth

Advanced Dental Technology

At our office, we are able to precisely place implants using our 3-D cone beam x-ray system. We are also able to create customized crowns right here in our office using our CEREC system. Implants can also be used to securely hold a bridge or dentures if you are missing multiple teeth or you are edentulous (missing all your teeth).

Dependable Tooth Replacement Option

Implants are an excellent choice for most patients who are missing teeth because, in addition to looking and feeling like a natural tooth, they also help maintain your precious periodontal bone. This is incredibly important for your long-term dental health.

The implant functions like a replacement root, stimulating your bone to continue maintaining itself. Without this stimulation, the bone resorbs, becoming diminished and weak. Eventually, as the bone becomes weaker, you are likely to lose more teeth. Dental implants stop this cycle so that you can retain more of your natural teeth.

Call Our St. Paul MN Dental Clinic

If you are missing teeth, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Schulte to see if dental implants are a good choice for you.
