If you have a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even an entire dental arch get lost or extracted, dental implants can replace the missing teeth, from the root to the crown. These implants act as prosthetic teeth that look and feel just like the real thing. Each dental implant is made up from two main parts —the implant post and the implant restoration — and the process of obtaining your implant replacement is split into two main parts as well.

First, the implant post will be placed by an experienced oral surgeon, integrating with your jawbone in a process known as osseointegration for full, long-term security. Next, our dentist will invite you to our office and sit down with you to discuss your implant restoration options. While the implant post functions as a prosthetic tooth root, anchoring your restoration into place and keeping your mouth safe from further bone loss, the implant restoration that our team can create for you will be the replacement for the crown of your missing tooth or teeth. That is, the restoration we create will replace the visible part of the missing tooth or teeth. Depending on your specific needs, the restoration could consist of a single dental crown, a dental bridge, or a full or partial implant-supported denture. Our dentist will be able to help you decide on the restoration that works best for you, taking into account your oral health and function and, of course, your smile goals.

Each dental implant restoration is made to offer you a long-lasting solution and is custom designed to fit beautifully, naturally and comfortably in your mouth. With a dental implant restoration from The Art of Modern Dentistry, you can have an aesthetically pleasing and durable treatment that restores your full oral function, so you can have a smile you are proud to share for years to come.

FAQ: Dental Implant Restorations – Rediscover Your Confident Smile

Welcome to our FAQ page on Dental Implant Restorations, where we aim to address any questions or concerns you may have. We understand that choosing the right dental service can be a daunting task, but rest assured, our team at The Art of Modern Dentistry in Tulsa, OK is committed to providing you with the highest quality care and restoring your beautiful smile. Read on to discover the value and benefits of dental implant restorations.

Q: What are dental implant restorations?
A: Dental implant restorations are a state-of-the-art solution for replacing missing teeth. They involve the placement of biocompatible titanium implants into your jawbone, which act as artificial tooth roots. These implants serve as a solid foundation for the attachment of natural-looking dental crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Q: What is the value of dental implant restorations?
A: Dental implant restorations offer a multitude of benefits that make them an ideal choice for tooth replacement. Firstly, they provide unparalleled stability and functionality, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods without worry. Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, dental implants are firmly anchored in your jawbone, eliminating any concerns about slipping or discomfort.

Furthermore, dental implant restorations have the added advantage of preserving your overall oral health. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it can deteriorate, leading to changes in your facial structure and causing adjacent teeth to shift. By replacing the missing tooth root, dental implants stimulate the bone, preventing any bone loss and maintaining your facial contours.

Q: Are dental implant restorations suitable for everyone?
A: Dental implant restorations are a versatile solution for the majority of patients. However, individual candidacy depends on factors such as oral health, bone density, and overall medical condition. During your initial consultation, our experienced dentists will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine if dental implant restorations are the right option for you. We take into account your unique situation and work closely with you to create a customized treatment plan that aligns with your specific needs and goals.

Q: Is the dental implant restoration process painful?
A: At The Art of Modern Dentistry, we prioritize your comfort throughout every step of the process. Dental implant restoration is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring a pain-free experience. Any post-operative discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Our highly skilled team of dental professionals will guide you through each stage of the procedure, ensuring you feel informed and at ease.

Q: How long do dental implant restorations last?
A: With proper care and maintenance, dental implant restorations have the potential to last a lifetime. Unlike traditional dental prosthetics that may require frequent replacements, dental implants offer exceptional durability. Regular dental visits, proper oral hygiene, and a healthy lifestyle will contribute to the longevity of your dental implants.
