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.
