Dental Implants Q & A

Perfect Smile Tulsa

What is a dental implant?

If you’ve lost a tooth, a dental implant provides a long-lasting solution that fits in seamlessly with your existing teeth while preserving the overall integrity of your dental health.

What makes a dental implant so effective is that the new tooth naturally integrates into your jawbone. After Dr. Davis removes the remnants of your existing tooth, he implants a titanium post into your jawbone, which acts as the root. Over time, your body grows bone around the implant, securing it in place.

 

Why do I need a dental implant?

The dentists at Perfect Smile Tulsa recommend dental implants to manage a variety of oral conditions.

Replace missing teeth

When you lose a tooth, the results can extend far beyond an aesthetic concern. A missing tooth can hamper your ability to chew or speak properly. Without the root, your jaw begins to lose bone, which can lead to a sunken appearance and cause your existing teeth to shift out of place.

Provide support for bridges or dentures

If you have several compromised or missing teeth that require a bridge or dentures, a dental implant provides support for these structures.

 

Does an implant involve surgery?

Yes. While an implant is a surgical procedure, Dr. Davis and his staff at Perfect Smile Tulsa can work more quickly and efficiently thanks to digital scanners that take the guesswork out of the process and increase precision.

If you’re feeling uneasy about dental surgery, Perfect Smile Tulsa offers several sedation options, including:

  • Nitrous oxide
  • Oral sedation
  • Relaxants

The goal of the dentists at Perfect Smile Tulsa is to ensure your comfort during any dental procedure at Perfect Smile Tulsa.

 

How quickly can I get a dental implant?

Your body takes up to several months to integrate the implanted post naturally, so Dr. Davis provides crowns immediately after your procedure — thanks to their in-office Cerec® system.

Instead of relying on an outside lab, the dentists use Cerec to digitally map your mouth and create a tooth on site. Using 3D CAD software, the end result is a tooth-shaped and colored to fit in seamlessly with your existing teeth.
