Improve Your Life With Teeth Implants

Although dental implants have been around in one form or another for hundreds of years, in the last few decades implant technology has grown by leaps and bounds. Today, teeth implants are generally made from medical-grade titanium and are surgically placed into a patient’s jaw.

Dr. Link will design your implant procedure beforehand, then use a 3-D printer to create a detailed model to guide your surgery. Afterward, he can secure a dental restoration to your implants that could potentially last for several decades! Your options for implant restoration may include:

  • Single Implant Crowns – A porcelain or zirconia crown anchored to an implant will replace a single missing tooth. Using our CEREC system, we can design your new crown and make it with our own milling station located at our other dental practice across town.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges – We can use two or more implants to secure a sturdy bridge, replacing several missing teeth in a row. You’ll enjoy having a complete smile as well as renewed biting power.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – Implants can anchor a set of dentures, making your new teeth more stable and comfortable than traditional removable dentures could ever be. They will secure to a bar that is in turn screwed to your implants.
  • Fixed Full Arch Replacement Teeth – Using a minimal number of implants (usually four), we can attach a complete arch of replacement teeth. They will look natural and give you back virtually all your biting and chewing capacity.
  • Same-Day Smile – You could potentially receive your new implants and replacement teeth in just one appointment – without waiting several months in between.

Mini Implants May Work For You

Teeth implants need a sufficient amount of strong bone to bond with. If your jawbone is weak or deteriorated, or you’re not a good candidate for a bone graft procedure, then mini dental implants may be a good option for you. You will appreciate our Shatkin F.I.R.S.T.® mini dental implants, which are proven to be the strongest mini implants in the world.

Mini implants:

  • Require less good bone for bonding
  • Need a less invasive procedure
  • Allow for a shorter healing time

If you have any questions about types of dental implants and the benefits of dental implants, call us at (636) 496 8584 (Ballwin office) and schedule a consultation today.


Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.
