Dental implants are the most popular solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. The results look and function just like your natural teeth, and at Henrich Dental we have the skills and experience to make sure the job is done right.
The benefits of dental implants offer long term dental health when compared to dentures as well as dental bridges. An implant can revitalize your entire smile, restore your ability to eat and speak, and you can clean and maintain it just like you would your natural teeth.
The three-part dental implant system mimics the natural ingenuity of the human tooth.
Whether you are missing a single tooth or a full arch of teeth, dental implants can be used to fully restore your smile. Dental implants are designed to replace missing teeth in the most natural way possible.
Our dentist in Tulsa offers dental implant services to help patients enjoy their optimal oral health. Dental implants help to maintain the health and structure of the bite. Implants fuse with the jaw bone creating a secure and permanent bond. The titanium posts help to stimulate natural bone regeneration for long term stability and durable results.
The Dental Implant
The Dental Restoration- Dental restorations are the part of the dental crown system that looks and functions like a natural tooth. The type of dental restoration a patient receives will vary depending on the number and placement of missing teeth and the number and style of implants used. The restoration is custom designed using high-quality dental grade porcelain to match the patient’s adjacent teeth for a natural result.
The Abutment-The abutment is a small metal attachment that is used to anchor the dental restoration to the dental implant once the implant has fully healed. The abutment will protrude from the gum line.
The Implant Post-Made of medical grade titanium, the dental implant post is much like a tiny threaded screw. The post is surgically inserted into the jaw bone and is designed to mimic a natural tooth root. The dental implant post takes 3-6 months to integrate with the jawbone. Once healed, the implant will help support natural bone regeneration and secure bite alignment.
3D Digital Planning
With the use of state of the art digital imaging, Dr. Henrich is able to create a 3-D model used for more precise treatment planning. The Kavo OP 3D CBCT creates lifelike digital models that help Dr. Henrich produce more accurate and secure implant results. These highly accurate models often result in less invasive surgery saving patients time and money. 3D imaging provides as an aid for precision, improving the end result.
A Simple Procedure
The first step in this process involves implanting a titanium “root.” We use titanium because it is strong, lightweight, and your jawbone will actually fuse right to it. Once the bone has healed around it, the connection will be as strong as your normal roots.
We will then place an abutment on top of the titanium, which will hold the porcelain crown. This crown will look just like your natural teeth, and it will be made specifically to fit in your mouth. It will be indistinguishable when you smile, and it will let you eat all your favorite foods.
