In Oklahoma City, there is no better dental office than Bright Smile Family Dentistry. If you need dental implants done by a trusted implant dentist, you know that there are plenty of providers, but you need to choose the right one. We specialize in general dentistry for the whole family, including procedures such as full-mouth reconstruction. We understand that every patient has different needs, depending on the situation, so we make every effort to provide affordable dental implants. No matter what your dental needs are, we will do our best to provide excellent service and care.

Types of Dental Implants

The implant we use depends on your jawbone health. If you have healthy jawbone, we can place screw-shaped, titanium endosteal implants into the jawbone. There are some techniques that can restore some jawbone health or support for patients who want this kind of implant but don’t have enough natural jawbone health.

Patients with natural jawbones unhealthy enough to support implants, and unwilling to undergo other techniques, would need subperiosteal implants. These implants use a metal framework above your jaw and under the gums.

Are Dental Implants Safe?

Dental implants have risks, like most surgical procedures, but are safe and very successful for most patients. We only recommend them for those who meet the right criteria for a successful implant. Your gums need to be healthy and cavity-free for implants, so keeping regular visits beforehand is important. It can take six months after the procedure for recovery, so a strict dental hygiene regimen will be needed afterward as well.

Reasons to Choose Us

If you are considering options to improve your smile and dental health, it can get a little bit overwhelming. Dental implants provide a litany of benefits that persuade many patients to choose them. A few of their advantages include:
  • Implants have the ability to preserve the bone in your jaw rather than further deteriorating it.
  • Often, implants have a more natural look than other forms of dental recovery.
  • The average lifespan of implants can be a person’s entire lifetime, if they are cared for.
If you are struggling with dental deterioration or other issues, we can help. We will gladly consult with you to help you find the best option available for your health and your smile.

Dental Implants or Dentures

Dentures have a much lower upfront cost than dental implants, but still require the regular purchase of special cleaners, adhesives, repairs, and replacements. Here are some reasons our implant patients found them to be a worthy investment:

Health and appearance

Dental implants help keep jawbones from deteriorating by using pressure similar to teeth roots to strengthen them. This also helps maintain your facial structure. Crowns and bridges we use with dental implants offer a more natural appearance than dentures.

Function and comfort

Dental implants are more stable and have a better fit — which makes them able to function like natural teeth. Dentures can slip around, even with adhesives, and restrict chewing capacity.

Maintenance and durability

Dental implants are easy to clean and care for — like your natural teeth — while dentures need to be removed regularly for cleaning. A dental implant can last 25 years on average, while dentures will need to be replaced every seven to 15 years.
