Oklahoma City Dental Implants

For anyone who has experienced single tooth loss or loss of multiple teeth, whether through injury, age or decay, getting a dental implant can be truly life-changing. Implants mimic the look, feel and function of natural teeth, allowing you to get back to chewing, smiling and chatting just the way you had before. Grace Dentistry is here to answer questions you have about dental implants!

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants use tiny titanium supports to replace the root of a missing tooth before the implant is attached. After that, your gums are folded around the implant to make it look as natural as possible. In the immediate aftermath of your procedure, you may be given a dental crown or dental bridge, but over time the implant will fuse with the bone.

 

The implant restorations are created to match the look and feel of the original tooth nearly to perfection. When the final implant is put in place you’ll have an all-new smile with a totally reconstructed tooth – from root to crown – in place!

 

In some cases, a dental implant may not be an option to replace a missing tooth. If that’s the case for you, Dr. Grace will go over other options that fit your budget and lifestyle. In other cases, an implant may be an option but not just yet due to bone loss. If this is the case, she may recommend bone grafting.

The Hazards of Missing Teeth

Not simply a cosmetic concern, missing teeth are a serious threat to the overall health of your mouth. Existing teeth tend to shift to fill in the gaps where missing teeth had been, altering your smile.

Where the bone is no longer needed to support a tooth or multiple teeth, bone loss in your jawline is likely to occur over time. On top of that, a person who has been missing teeth for even a short period of time is at an increased risk for gum disease.

Other Types of Implants

Dental Implant Supported Bridge

Implant Supported Bridges

For patients who may be missing one or more adjacent teeth, implant-supported bridges can be a great replacement option. Implants are much stronger and may be recommended by your dentist over traditional dental bridges. Depending on the damage of surrounding teeth and gums, implant supported bridges may even save patients from full or partial dentures. 

Implant Supported Dentures

Implant Supported Dentures

If you're already missing most of your teeth, experience a lot of pain in your gums, or area  denture wearer, than implant supported dentures may be a great option for you. Implant supported dentures are securely attached with multiple implants. There is also no roof plate like dentures, so you confidently eat and taste all of the food you love.

Mini Dental Implants

Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are a less invasive option for people missing one or more teeth. Mini implants are about half the size of traditional implants but do essentially the same thing. Because the implants are fused to your jaw bone, the replacement teeth stay securely in place and won’t slip during eating or speaking.
