Types of Dental Implants
Dental Implant Secured Dental Crown – Even a single missing tooth can cause serious oral health issues. Dental implants are recommended to replace a single missing tooth. Dr. Henrich will coordinate the surgical phase of the implant post in to your root canal. Once healed in about 3-6 months, the abutment will be attached, and a dental crown will be used to complete the restoration at our Tulsa, OK dentist office. The dental crown will be custom designed to aesthetically fit your smile.
Dental Implant Secured Dental Bridge – Traditionally, a dental bridge can be removable or fixed, attached to adjacent teeth using porcelain or metal. With both of these options, the long term outcome is often less than desirable and may require replacement down the road as the loss of teeth impacts the jaw and fit of the bite over time. A dental bridge is often used to replace several consecutively missing teeth. Henrich Dental, a Tulsa, OK dentist office, recommends securing dental bridges with dental implants. Dental implants provide more structural support for the jaw and bite and need less maintenance.
Dental Implant Secured Denture – Implant secured dentures, or All-on-4 dental implants, offer a more comfortable and lasting result when all of the top or bottom teeth are lost. Many patients struggle with dentures that slip sometimes leading to embarrassing situations. Dentures that are secured using dental implants will eliminate that slipping. Dr. Henrich will coordinate the surgical phase with a local specialist who will strategically place as few as four dental implants in the jaw which will maintain healthy jaw bone structure. These dental implants will be used to secure a hybrid denture. All-on-4 dental implants allow patients to enjoy a diet without restriction and can help patients feel more confident in their smile. Dentures secured by dental implants also eliminate the need for glues, adhesives, soaks or rinses.
