Dental implants offer a solution when teeth are lost due to injury, decay, or disease. With dental implants, you can achieve a natural-looking, full set of teeth that function like your own, enabling you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
If you need dental implants, it’s important to find a dentist you trust to install and maintain them. Our team at Broken Arrow Family Dentistry is highly experienced in implant dentistry and can provide you with the highest level of care to ensure your implants last a lifetime.
Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they provide a strong foundation for permanent teeth replacements such as crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Dental implants have titanium posts that act as a root to a porcelain crown. They are often designed to take the place of a single tooth, but implant roots can also be attached to dentures to help anchor them more securely. Either way, dental implants can provide a more secure fit than other types of dental prostheses, and they can last you a lifetime with proper care.
In addition to helping you chew and speak more comfortably, implants can help preserve facial structure and prevent the bone deterioration that tends to occur when teeth are missing. And, thanks to top-tier crown technology, we can create a crown that looks and feels like the rest of your teeth, making it impossible for the casual observer to tell the difference.
At Broken Arrow Family Dentistry, we offer a variety of implant-related services to help you get the results you’re looking for. When you come in for a consultation, our experienced dentists Dr. Hill Trammell will listen to your concerns and evaluate your needs to determine if implants are right for you. We’ll also make sure that your existing teeth and gums are healthy enough to support them.
Once it’s determined that you are a good candidate for implants, we can begin the process of custom-making and installing your new teeth. We’ll also provide you with instructions on how to care for them so they last as long as possible. In addition, when you come into our office for your regular cleanings, we’ll inspect your implants to make sure they’re in tip-top shape.
