Dental Implants in Oklahoma City, OK
Dr. Michael Kirk specializes in dental implants, having studied extensively during postgraduate work at the University of Texas. Dental implants are the newest and most permanent way to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a special surgical-grade titanium post, manufactured to precise specifications under strict sterile conditions. Dr. Kirk will first insert the post into the jawbone below the gum surface. With proper use of the newest anesthetics and medications, you need not be concerned about pain. As the bone bonds to the implant post, it forms a secure foundation onto which your new teeth will be attached.
The number of teeth being replaced will determine the best kind of restoration for you. Dental implants can replace a single tooth or provide anchoring for a bridge, denture, or partial. Our comfort options will allow you to relax and possibly even fall asleep while under the skilled hands of Dr. Kirk and our dental team.
Dental implants have many advantages over other tooth replacement options. For instance, existing teeth will not be altered in any way, and you won't need clasps or adhesives to hold your implant-supported prosthetic in place. For over 25 years and throughout the whole world, dental implants have been used to complete smiles and improve lives.
In addition, dental implants greatly reduce the jawbone shrinkage that occurs when a tooth is lost. Denture wearers often suffer from jawbone deterioration, which compromises a youthful appearance. With dental implants, cheeks and lips will remain plump due to good underlying support from solid bone tissue.
