Chew & Smile Easily Again With Dental Implants in Broken Arrow, OK

At LakeCrest Dental, we pride ourselves on giving our patients confident smiles. One way we do that is with dental implants in Broken Arrow. More than other teeth replacements, implants give you a smile that looks, feels, and functions like the smile you were born with – or maybe even better.

You’ll find your implants are:

  • Confidence Inspiring – Your implants are embedded in your jaw, where your bone grows around them. There’s no need to worry about the embarrassment of teeth that move, shift, or even become dislodged.
  • Comfortable – Implants won’t rub against your gums, creating uncomfortable friction.
  • Convenient – You care for implants just like any other teeth, by brushing and flossing. Forget about securing teeth with messy adhesive; you won’t need it!
  • Good for Your Oral Health – Implants act like artificial tooth roots, stimulating your jaw the same way real roots do. This keeps you from losing bone density. Your face looks fuller and younger.

To find out if implants are the right teeth replacements for you, call 918-205-4492.

Complete Your Dental Implant Procedure in One Place

Some dentists only place implants, while others just restore them. We do both. This means you can get your entire dental implant procedure, from start to finish, in our comfortable office. No need to visit an outside oral surgeon!

Our team uses state-of-the-art technology such as 3D imaging and computer-guided implant placement for many of our dental implant procedures. Thanks to our training and hands-on expertise, we offers a wide variety of treatments, including these two that can be used for full-mouth dental implants:

  • All-on-4® – Using this special technique, your dentist attaches a full arch of replacement teeth to just four implants. It can be used in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both.
  • All-on-6 – This process, while similar, uses six implants to secure your teeth replacements.

It’s possible you can get mini implants if your jaw isn’t strong enough to support full-size implants. You may even be able to get your implants immediately following a tooth extraction!

Implants Fill Gaps in Your Smile, From One Tooth to Many

Implants can replace any number of teeth, from a single tooth to an entire mouthful. We will help you choose the dental restoration that is right for your unique situation. Your options may include:

  • Dental Implants and Crowns – When used with a dental crown, an implant is a great choice for replacing one tooth.
  • Dental Implants and Bridges – Implants can anchor a fixed bridge to replace several missing teeth.
  • Dental Implants and Dentures – You can choose dentures that you can easily remove from implants for cleaning or dentures that remain attached to implants until a dentist removes them.

You’ll remain comfortable and relaxed throughout your dental implant procedure, thanks to amenities like our massage chairs, cozy blankets, and TVs so you can catch up on your favorite Netflix programs. In addition, you can choose from two kinds of safe dental sedation: inhaled sedation (laughing gas) or an oral sedative.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

How do dental implants work?

After we place an implant in your jaw, your bone fuses to it in a process called osseointegration. This creates a highly stable foundation for a dental crown, a dental bridge, or dentures. Depending on the kind of implants you receive, you may need to wait a few months before we attach your restoration.

Can dental implants move after surgery?

Movement of dental implants is rare, assuming you practice good oral hygiene and receive regular dental cleanings. That’s because, unlike other tooth replacements, your bone grows around your implant. While an implant helps keep the bone in your jaw strong, advanced gum disease (peri-implantitis, if you have implants) can cause your bone to degrade if it’s left untreated.

Are dental implants worth it?

That is a question only you can answer. However, implants do offer many advantages you won’t experience with other teeth replacements. For example, they stimulate your jaw so you won’t suffer the bone loss that occurs with a traditional bridge or dentures. They offer a feel and function more similar to your natural teeth than these other options.
