Dental Implants - Blackwell, OK
Replace Missing Teeth
Here in Blackwell, Dr. Neale believes that one of the greatest inventions in dentistry is the dental implant. If you have lost one or more natural teeth, state-of-the-art implants are designed to replace them comprehensively, starting with the tooth root that’s well-hidden under the gum tissue. The final result is strong, functional, seamlessly attractive, and very long-lasting. It’s like having a second chance to enjoy your original teeth!
At Blackwell Dentistry, we’re proud to now offer every stage of dental implants treatment right here in our office for maximum convenience and comfort. You won’t have to travel out of town! Please contact us today if you have any questions, or if you’re ready to schedule a consultation.
Dental Implant Placement
The first major stage of receiving dental implants is their surgical placement into the jawbone. This will allow the implant to become your tooth’s new “root,” creating an enduring foundation for replacement teeth. Dr. Neale uses a state-of-the-art Cone Beam machine to ensure that this procedure is as smooth and successful as it can possibly be. Once in place, the implant or implants will gradually bond with your natural oral tissue. The last step is to cover them with high-quality, custom-made restorations.
Dental Implant Crowns & Bridges
There are multiple options available for restoring dental implants, depending on the extent of the patient’s tooth loss and how many implants require coverage. For instance, if there’s only one implant/missing tooth, an all-ceramic dental crown is the best option. It will fit between natural teeth seamlessly without threatening their health. Alternatively, an implant-retained bridge can be anchored over two placed dental implants in order to restore multiple teeth in a row all at once.
Dental Implant Dentures
Many patients who have experienced severe tooth loss believe that they aren’t good candidates for dental implants – but this isn’t true in most cases! Implant-retained dentures are available, and Dr. Neale may even be able to outfit existing dentures with dental implant technology as well. These custom-made prosthetics can attach to a small number of implants, replacing several teeth at a time. They will stay sturdily in place – no unwanted slipping – and function normally, helping you enjoy your smile confidently once more.
