What is Osseointegration?

Serving Patients in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Lawton, and Norman, OK

Osseointegration is the process by which bone integrates an artificial implant into its natural structure. The process of osseointegration is what makes dental implants the strongest and most reliable form of tooth replacement.
If you are missing one or more teeth, please contact Terry Bass, DDS or call 405-622-8996 today to schedule a consultation with our Oklahoma City implant dentist.
 

Designed to Provide a Lifetime of Support

 
One of the largest benefits of dental implants is that they are designed to provide a lifetime of support. Made of a biocompatible metal, the surface of implants contain microscopic holes through which osteoblasts and connective tissue can integrate.

 

Once inserted, the process of osseointegration allows your implant to become a permanent part of your jaw. 
This provides the dual benefit of a secure hold and the elimination of jaw shrinkage, a natural result of missing teeth.

During your initial consultation with Oklahoma City implant dentist Dr. Terry Bass, your questions about the dental implant process can be discussed in detail. Dr. Bass will also talk to you about alternative tooth replacement options and help you find the solution that is best suited to meet your needs.
