Why You Should Choose Dental Implants
When teeth are lost or extracted, normal bite function is impaired, the jaw bone loses strength, and the smile is no longer uniform. Traditional treatments include dentures, partials, or bridges, but dental implants provide another more permanent way to restore your smile.
Implant treatment can be adapted to restore one missing tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch. Implant posts are surgically placed in the jaw to restore strength and reduce bone loss as a result of tooth loss. No other replacement option provides the gum and bone stimulation needed to maintain optimal oral health over a lifetime. With advanced implant treatments, you can eat, laugh, and smile with confidence again.
Types of Dental Implants
Whether you are missing one or a full arch of teeth, our practice offers a variety of treatments using implant restorations.
Single Dental Implants - If you are missing one tooth, an implant-supported crown replaces the entire tooth without altering neighboring teeth. An implant is made up of the post, an abutment, and a crown for a very stable, comfortable, and attractive tooth replacement option.
Implant-Supported Bridge – Traditionally, bridges utilize surrounding healthy teeth as anchors to replace one or more missing teeth. Implants can be incorporated into the treatment allowing the prosthetic bridge to be fixed to implant posts instead, eliminating the need to alter neighboring teeth.
Implant-Supported Dentures - Full and partial dentures can be secured to dental implants without the use of adhesives. As a permanent solution to missing teeth, implant-supported dentures support the strength and integrity of the jaw bone to prevent facial collapse. Depending on your needs and specifications, there are options such as All-on-4 and All-on-6, where a specific number of dental implants secure a prosthetic that replaces a full set of teeth on the upper or lower arch. How many implants you receive will depend on your current bone density and overall oral health needs.
Overdentures – Dentures can be stabilized with dental implants yet still be removable. Secured by special attachments, Snap-On dentures can reduce jawbone shrinkage by redirecting bite pressure. You can remove these dentures nightly for a thorough hygiene routine. Overdentures can be complete or partial, and they are more durable than traditional dentures, providing improved function and retention over time.
Our team is equipped with modern technology and techniques to ensure successful implant treatment. We allow time for healing before placing the final restoration, as your jaw must fully integrate with your implant. We provide temporary restorations during this recovery process, but once we have established adequate healing, we place your final custom restoration.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
The cost of your implant treatment will vary based on several factors, including:
- Current jaw bone health
- The complexity of your custom restoration (crown, bridge, or denture)
- How many implants are needed
- Type of restoration material
- Insurance coverage
We understand that it can be challenging to find the resources to complete implant treatment and work with you to create a plan that you can afford. We can also show you how your investment will pay off in the long run by preventing other serious oral health complications.

Dental Implants in Edmond FAQ’s
If you are thinking about getting a dental implant, you probably have a few questions. Here are some of the most common questions and answers.
A: Dental implants preserve your dental health by imitating the structure and biocompatibility of a natural tooth. The implant post is like the tooth root, and as it fuses into the jawbone, it helps to preserve the bone and maintain facial structure. Patients with dental implants are often more confident, as they know their restoration is secure and will last a long time.
A: The healing process differs for each patient, so no two procedures are identical. Some patients require a bone graft before implant placement, while others opt for same-day implant treatment. Most patients can expect to have a three to six-month healing period, during which the titanium implant fuses with the jawbone. Once integration and healing are complete, a dental crown can be placed, and recovery time is similar to other treatments, like a root canal.
A: Dental implants provide the same aesthetic solution as a denture or dental bridge, but the integrity of an implant is far stronger. Dental bridges are comparable, but over time, without stimulation by a tooth root, the jawbone will begin to lose volume. As the bone recedes, there is potential for adjacent teeth to lose strength, causing the bridge to fail, which may result in a sunken or pinched facial appearance.
A: A dental implant is a beautiful restorative option and is designed to be undetectable. There are few people, other than your dentist, who can detect an implant.
A: Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care, including regular dental exams and a strong at-home oral health routine.
