Dental Implants Offer A New Smile

oklahoma city dental implants

When you have missing teeth, whether you have lost one or all of them, we want to help with prosthetics that look natural and can last for years to come. Dental implants can offer a fantastic smile again! Our Oklahoma City, OK, dental practice can offer single tooth options, snap-in dentures, and more to address your tooth loss.

Addressing a Single Missing Tooth

If you have lost even one tooth, then you need a treatment to avoid issues like misalignment or the gradual breakdown of the jaw, which could lead to further tooth loss. Our team can offer a replacement option that looks natural and helps protect your jawbone. Our team will carefully examine the jaw to identify the best area, position, angle, and depth to insert the implant post, a biocompatible titanium post that looks like a small screw. Once in place, this bonds with the jaw like a natural tooth. We then connect an abutment to it and attach a crown, which acts as the visible portion of your new tooth and provides a durable chewing surface, and is designed to look natural and blend with your smile.

Multi-Tooth Options

If you have lost several teeth, we can use multiple posts to support a prosthetic, so you can obtain new teeth that look and function like natural teeth. For people with two to four missing teeth in a row, we could offer a bridge supported with dental implants, which can last far longer than a traditional one. In addition, you don’t lose natural structure on surrounding teeth to support the bridge. Instead, we will insert multiple posts into the jaw and attach the custom bridge to them, completing your new smile.

Snap-In Dentures

What if you have lost most of your natural teeth? In these situations, we can remove the last few with a tooth extraction and take detailed images of your smile to plan the placement of multiple posts across your arch. We then create a denture that is snapped into the implants and secured in place. You can remove the denture portion for cleaning and soaking as needed, and when in place these are more secure than traditional removable options. You can enjoy your favorite foods again, smile with confidence, and enjoy new teeth designed to last decades as opposed to just five years like removable dentures. If you have any questions about how we address a single missing tooth or support a full set of dental implant dentures, then please contact our team today to learn more.
