What’s the finest tooth replacement option? It’s the Oklahoma City dental implants available from your local OKC dentist! Since dental implants work to replace a tooth from the visible tooth to the root, the dental implant looks real, feels real, and strengthens the jaw a permanent solution for missing teeth. Learn more in this week’s blog post.
Are you missing one or more teeth?
Dr. Joe Isaacson, your dentist in Oklahoma City, encourages you to explore dental implants thoroughly in this week’s blog post. Why? They are an excellent tooth replacement option! Unlike other dental restoration options that have their own problems (like slippage with dentures or damaging neighboring teeth with bridgework), dental implants bond right to the jaw bone. They can replace one or more teeth or anchor to other dental prosthetics as well.
Why are implants so successful?
Did you know that dental implants have a success rate of at least 95%? It’s true when your implant procedure is preformed by a trained professional, like your dentist in Oklahoma City.
A great reason for their high level of success is because of the materials they are crafted from. The titanium in the implant devices melds right to the natural jaw bone, creating a strong foundation through a natural process termed osseointegration. Materials are high quality and biocompatible; the body readily accepts the device, and in fact, it strengthens the bone which otherwise would recede after tooth loss.
Furthermore, patients testify that they cannot tell the difference between their natural teeth and their implants. Since dental care at home is so important, you can easily transition from taking care of your natural smile to also caring for your dental implants because they feel just the same!
Getting Dental Implants? Here’s What to Expect.
Additionally, we know that every patient’s mouth is different as well as every case of tooth loss. You can be confident that your dentist will provide customized dental care to match your needs.
The implant procedure typically takes several months from placement to complete healing. Placement of the titanium implant is a comfortable, in-office surgery which normally requires no more than local anesthesia. Sutures close the gums, and after the site is healed and the implant integrated into the bone, you’ll return to have your personalized dental prosthetic attached—whether it’s a dental crown or even a full denture!
