Why Consider Dental Implants
Natural teeth do more than facilitate dental function – they help reinforce the strength and density of the jaw bone, which preserves facial structure bite function. When teeth are lost, either through dental trauma or ongoing dental problems, the lack of bone stimulation provided by teeth is lost, causing the jaw to weaken.
Over time, this can lead to a number of other issues, including difficulty chewing, biting, facial sagging, as well as additional tooth loss. While conventional restorations like dentures, partials, or bridges can provide a temporary tooth replacement solution, these options ultimately neglect the jaw and can accelerate damage by compromising healthy teeth and gum tissue. In order to thoroughly restore the smile without risking additional damage, patients need a more comprehensive treatment option, such as dental implants.
Dental implants are surgically placed prosthetics that engage the jaw bone to permanently replace missing or severely damaged teeth. Implants are placed into the jaw bone through a quick outpatient procedure. Over the course of recovery, bone gradually fuses to the body of the implant, making it a permanent part of the dentition and helping stimulate bone tissue health. Once the implant has been fully integrated into the bone, patients receive their customized implant restoration, which can vary from single restorations to comprehensive full arch restorations.
State-of-the-Art Implant Dentistry in Lawton
At Lawton Cosmetic Dentistry, we are dedicated to providing high quality, successful dental implant solutions. To further bolster the 95-96% success rate of dental implants, Dr. Lopez utilizes the latest dental technologies to create predictable implant treatment plans.
Rather than relying on guessing locations of best placement, we create computerized surgical guides using 3D scans of your smile. By providing our implant dentist with an in-depth look at every part of your smile, this imaging system ensures your implants are placed for optimal success and longevity. Ultimately, the use of this cutting-edge technology provides patients lasting results and improved comfort throughout the teeth replacement process.
Once your implants have been placed, you will return to Lawton Cosmetic Dentistry for placement of prosthetics. In some cases, particularly those where patients have otherwise healthy smiles, we’re able to completely restore lost teeth in just one day, whether you need one crown or full arch restoration. Our Teeth-in-a-Day and All on 4 implant options provide patients with the smiles they are looking for in just one day. For patients with more extensive teeth replacement needs, we work closely with a local lab to create the right restoration for your smile.

I loved my experience at Dr. Lopez's office. 20 years ago I had several unsightly metal fillings put in my mouth. Also, I've worn my teeth down by grinding considerably over the years. As I grew older, my teeth did not look good to me when I smiled. In July of 2015, I wanted to have all of the metal fillings in my mouth removed, and one of the fillings in particular had already cracked the tooth that it filled. Initially, I was very nervous, but Dr. Lopez and his staff completely put me at ease from the time I walked in the door. The way he rebuilt the grinding damage on my back teeth is remarkable. He is not only a great dentist but a gifted architect and engineer at the same time. I didn't even feel the numbing shots at all, and I actually fell asleep in the chair during the procedure thanks to Dr. Lopez's relaxing demeanor and the calming music in the room. To my wife, I affectionately refer to him as Dr. Lopezzzzzz, now, since I did fall asleep. I would recommend Dr. Lopez to even my closest family. Thank you, again, Dr. Lopez.
I went to Dr. Lopez to get veneers on eight teeth (upper, front). From my initial consultation to getting my temporary veneers put in today, I have been consistently impressed by his practice. The entire staff operate as a single, professional team. Extremely courteous, knowledgable, and accommodating, they do everything they can to help patients feel both comfortable and fully informed of everything that goes on during their visit.
My process with the veneers thus far has been extremely smooth and easy. Despite what you may read on the Internet from other people who have gotten veneers elsewhere, Dr. Lopez goes through great measures to ensure that your experience is pain and worry free. He is truly a master at his craft, and his vast experience in the dental profession (equally reflected in his accolades) definitely shows.
I have a check-up for the temporary veneers in the next couple of weeks, and the permanent veneers will arrive shortly thereafter. I have full confidence that the rest of this process will go just as well as it has so far, especially after my visit today. Highly recommend this office for your dental needs. 5/5 stars.
I have never liked going to the dentist because of painful past experiences. Shots, rough cleanings, etc. On my first visit, I had a cleaning . There was no pain. I was impressed. And a recent event that required shots, and extractions had me concerned about pain, but Dr. Lopez reassured me not to worry. As he began the shots,NO PAIN AT ALL!!! I was more than impressed! I knew I had found my dentist. Dr. Lopez and his staff are kind, gentle, professional, and the atmosphere is very relaxed and pleasant! I am very pleased, and highly recommend him!!!
