Tooth Replacement Options In Tulsa, OK
At our office in Tulsa, OK, we offer the following options to replace your missing tooth or teeth with the help of dental implants:
- An individual implant to replace a missing tooth
- An implant-supported bridge to a few missing teeth
- Mini dental implants for certain patients as a cost-effective option
- Removable dentures secured in place by dental implants and anchors
- All-on-4TM, All-on-5TM, All-on-6TM placed in just one day
Which option is right for you will depend on how many teeth need to be replaced, whether you’ve experienced any bone and tissue deterioration, and your personal preference. We will weigh the pros and cons of all options to come up with a procedure that’s just right for you.
If necessary, we can perform a bone graft, ridge augmentation, or gum graft to ensure you’re able to support dental implants.
What To Expect With Dental Implants
When you come to our office for a consultation, we can discuss which option will work best for your situation. We will be sure to go over every step of the procedure with you so you know what to expect.
You can rest assured that we will make sure you’re as relaxed and comfortable as possible. We offer IV sedation, oral sedation, and nitrous oxide to ensure our patients experience a painless procedure. If you’re feeling anxious about your procedure, don’t hesitate to let us know.
Once you’re ready and relaxed, we will place the implant or implants as discussed. You will then take a few months to let the area heal and allow the implant to bond with your jawbone to secure it in place. Then you’ll return to our office to have your replacement teeth secured to the implants, completely restoring your smile.
Any discomfort you experience after the procedure can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
How long your dental implant procedure will take depends on your overall dental health and the number of dental implants we are placing.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
Dental implants are meant to look and function just like your natural teeth. Caring for them is no different than caring for your teeth. It’s important to brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss daily, and maintain regular checkups with your dentist. With proper care and maintenance, your dental implants can last a lifetime!
