Affordable Dental Implants Eastern Oklahoma
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent base for replacement teeth. A dental implant consists of three parts – the post, the abutment, and the crown. The post is a titanium screw that anchors the crown into your jaw. The abutment is the extension of the post that is attached after the jaw is healed. It is the connection point between the post and the crown. The crown is the custom-made replacement tooth.
Dental implant surgery can offer a welcome alternative to dentures or bridgework that does not fit well and offers an option when a lack of natural teeth roots does not allow building denture or bridgework tooth replacements. If you are not sure which option is right for you, we are happy to sit down with you and go over these options. It is always a good idea to get a second opinion.
