Dental Implants are placed directly into the jawbone where they act as a replacement for a missing tooth’s root. Not only does this allow dental implants to provide a reliable hold for your restorations, it prevents issues related to root loss such as jaw collapse and bite irregularities.
Implant dentist Dr. Terry Bass often recommends this tooth replacement solution, even when several teeth are missing in a row. The best way to learn if dental implants are the right solution for your smile is through a one-on-one consultation at our Oklahoma City office.
In addition to preventing jaw collapse, advantages offered by dental implants include:
Full restoration of bite tension and strength
Completely natural looking restorations
No risk of awkward restoration slippage
Dental implants provide all of these benefits and more, and have the potential to offer a lifetime of support for restorations such as dental crowns, bridges, or even dentures. During your initial consultation Dr. Bass would be happy to discuss the advantages of choosing implants over other forms of tooth replacement to help ensure you are selecting the solution best suited to meet your needs.
