Invisalign is a revolutionary procedure that eliminates the need for metal braces, so you won’t feel embarrassed about the brackets and wires! The process removes the bulky and sometimes unsightly brackets, but is actually less of a long-term procedure than traditional braces. Tooth alignment via Invisalign only takes 6 months (in most cases) to complete whereas traditional braces sometimes take 2-4 years to fully align the teeth correctly.

Gapped, chipped, or cracked teeth can make you shy about smiling. Fortunately, Dr. Postol specializes in a variety of treatments used to fix these kinds of dental issues.

When missing teeth go untreated, it can affect integrity and bone support throughout the entire mouth. Often times, when one missing tooth is left untreated, it weakens the bone structure, causing other teeth to also fall out. It’s important that you seek treatment right away if you have lost or damaged a tooth to prevent further damage from occurring.
If you are missing a tooth (in either jaw bone) dental implants in Ballwin MO might be a fantastic solution for you. Dental implants are small metal rods inserted into the jaw bone via oral surgery. They look and function just as normal teeth would while providing a long-term and studier alternative to traditional dentures or bridges. Dental implants also great at preventing bone loss in the face and jaw due to missing teeth.

The following treatment options may be recommended to a varying degree if you decide to undergo a smile makeover from Kevin F. Postol DDS:
