Dr. Mark Davis at Perfect Smile Tulsa is a Dental Implant provider. Millions of people worldwide are enjoying normal function and attractive smiles thanks to the availability of dental implants. Dental implants are replacements for missing tooth roots and thus serve as a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. Candidates for dental implants can benefit from this revolution in dentistry because of the expanded treatment possibilities it provides.
Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots made of specially treated titanium, the same biomaterial used for artificial hip and knee joints. The titanium root is inserted into the jawbone and takes the place of the root of a missing tooth. The titanium root also can act as an anchor for retention of a loose denture. Once healing occurs (usually 6 to 12 weeks) Dr. Davis will secure a crown (the top portion of the tooth, seen above the gum level) to the top of the implant.
