If you have tooth loss caused by injury, gingivitis, or tooth decay, you may want to consider dental implants to restore your smile. Quite simply, dental implants are an artificial tooth root. Dental implants can be topped with a crown to fully blend in with your teeth, or used as a foundation for dentures.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Many of our Norman patients wonder, “What is the advantage of dental implants over dentures?” There are many, but one of the greatest is an easier time eating and drinking. Because dental implants are firmly rooted in your gums, they do not slide around as dentures often do. They also are more comfortable, durable, and convenient than most dental restoration options. Cleaning them is no different from your standard oral hygiene regimen. And, dental implants from Rose Rock Dental in Norman, Oklahoma, makes your smile feel complete, giving you confidence and self-esteem.
Our implants are made from safe, industry-standard materials such as titanium. In the first step of the procedure, we will implant the titanium root to your jawbone, so that the bone can grow around the implant. Once your gums have healed from that process, artificial crowns, made from molds of your gums and surrounding teeth, are installed on the root.
Once the procedure is complete, it is recommended to strictly follow standard oral hygiene, brushing regularly and flossing at least once per day.
