Implant Dentistry

Family & cosmetic dentistry in St. Louis, MO

Not many years ago, losing a tooth left you with few options for replacement. While permanent teeth should provide a lifetime of function, it doesn’t always end up that way. They may be lost from an accident, deep cavities, or gum disease. And since teeth start as a full set, even one missing tooth may disrupt the complex function of chewing, the first step in digestion. As teeth slowly lean and migrate into extra spaces, wear and cracking from excessive forces often create escalating problems.

When it’s time to replace missing teeth, whether it’s one or a full set, several options might be available to you. With the help of 3D technology, we can provide you with guided implants and a custom road map for your return to full dental function. Dental implants often give you the best opportunity to enjoy normal chewing and a full smile, although all therapeutic possibilities deserve consideration. Through the use of the Atlantis Conus system, we offer comfortable implants for a multitude of cases.

We know it’s not always easy for you to sort through the complicated possibilities. Dr. Ochoa works with specialists in restorative dentistry allow them to develop solutions for every scenario.
