Dental Implants in Nixa, MO

Missing teeth? Dental implants in Nixa, MO could be the solution you need! Dr. Todd Anderson provides implant dentistry to replace your missing teeth and fully restore your smile, oral health and oral function.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that replace both the roots and the crowns of your missing teeth. They consist of two main parts – the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post replaces the tooth root, anchoring your tooth to your jawbone and providing a stable foundation for your smile. Implant posts actually perform all the same functions as your natural tooth roots, stimulating your supporting jawbone to offer better long-term results than other tooth replacement options.

Implant restorations replace the crowns, or visible portions, of your missing teeth. Depending on your needs, your implant restoration could be a single crown, a bridge or a complete or partial denture. Your restoration will be carefully designed to fit your smile perfectly and provide you with beautiful and long-lasting results.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are considered the ideal option for replacing missing teeth because of the numerous benefits they offer. These benefits include:

  • A final result that looks, feels and functions just like your natural teeth
  • A result that lasts a lifetime
  • A restoration designed to permanently replace your missing teeth
  • A restoration that works to promote your long-term oral health and function
  • No damage to your adjacent teeth
  • Improved self-esteem and confidence
  • A cost-effective long-term treatment
  • Improved speech, chewing and eating, as well as comfort
  • A highly stable final result
  • And more!

Who Is A Candidate For Implant Dentistry?

If you have lost a tooth, you are a candidate for implant dentistry! Our implant dentist will discuss your missing tooth and your options with you to determine if dental implants are the right solution for you. We will also review your oral health – any pre-existing conditions, such as gum disease, tooth decay or bone loss, will need to be resolved before you can receive implants.

How Long Do Implants Last?

Dental implants are designed to permanently replace your missing teeth, and as such are intended to last for a lifetime. They require the same care as your natural teeth, including practicing good oral hygiene at home and visiting our implant dentist and team regularly for preventive care.

Keep in mind – your implant post may remain firmly anchored in your mouth, but you may need to replace the implant restoration if it breaks or wears out.
