Dental Implants

Are you tired of living with missing teeth and feeling self-conscious about your smile? Do traditional dentures or bridges leave you longing for a more permanent and natural solution? Look no further than Wynn Dentistry in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where we specialize in transforming smiles and restoring confidence through the remarkable innovation of dental implants. Led by the skilled and experienced Dr. Michael Wynn, our dedicated team is here to provide exceptional dental implant services tailored to your unique needs. Say goodbye to gaps in your smile and hello to a restored, functional, and beautiful set of teeth.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the gold standard when it comes to replacing missing teeth. They mimic your teeth’ natural structure and function, providing a permanent, long-lasting solution. Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone, creating a stable foundation for the replacement tooth or teeth. The result is a strong, secure, and lifelike restoration that allows you to eat, speak, and smile confidently.

What are

Dental Implant Restorations?

Dental implant restorations refer to customized prosthetic teeth attached to dental implants to replace missing or damaged teeth. These restorations are carefully crafted to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, both in appearance and function. Depending on your specific needs, several types of dental implant restorations are available. For a single missing tooth, we can use a dental crown to restore the individual tooth. An implant-supported bridge is a suitable option if multiple adjacent teeth are missing. In cases where we need to replace an entire arch of teeth, implant-supported dentures or an implant-supported fixed bridge can provide a stable and reliable solution. These restorations not only improve the aesthetics of your smile but also restore your ability to bite, chew, and speak comfortably.

Our Implant Services

One of the most significant advantages of dental implants is their versatility. Whether you are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even an entire arch, we offer a range of dental implant solutions to suit your specific needs:

Single Tooth Implants:

A dental implant with a customized crown can seamlessly fill the gap if you have a missing tooth. The implant acts as an artificial tooth root, providing stability and support, while the crown matches the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, blending seamlessly into your smile.

Implant-Supported Bridge:

An implant-supported bridge is an excellent option when multiple adjacent teeth are missing. We place the dental implants on either side of the gap, and a custom-made bridge is attached to the implants, effectively replacing the missing teeth. This solution offers a stable and durable restoration, restoring your smile's aesthetics and function.

Implant-Retained Dentures:

For patients who have lost an entire arch of teeth, implant-retained dentures provide an exceptional alternative to traditional removable dentures. We strategically place the dental implants in the jawbone, and a custom-made denture is securely attached. This implant provides a more stable and comfortable denture solution that eliminates the concerns of slipping or clicking, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and speak naturally.

What are

the Benefits of Dental Implants?

The benefits of dental implants extend far beyond just restoring the appearance of your smile. They offer a multitude of advantages that can significantly enhance your quality of life:

Unlike traditional bridges, dental implants do not require alteration or support from adjacent healthy teeth. The lack of alteration helps preserve the integrity of your remaining teeth, promoting better long-term oral health.

With their stable foundation, dental implants allow you to bite and chew confidently, just like natural teeth. They also eliminate the concerns of slurred speech or clicking sounds associated with removable dentures.

Dental implants last many years and can last a lifetime with proper care. This durability makes them a cost-effective investment in your long-term oral health and well-being.

The underlying jawbone can deteriorate over time when a tooth is lost. Dental implants stimulate the bone, preventing bone loss and maintaining the natural structure of your face.

What to Expect When Getting Dental Implants?

At Wynn Dentistry, we understand that each patient is unique, and we take the time to develop a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your goals and desires. Dr. Michael Wynn will conduct a comprehensive examination, including digital imaging and 3D scans, to evaluate your oral health and determine the best course of action for your dental implant treatment.

Dr. Michael Wynn will skillfully place the implants into your jawbone during the dental implant procedure. Over time, the implants will fuse with the bone through osseointegration, creating a stable and durable foundation for your replacement teeth. Once the implants have fully integrated, custom-made crowns, bridges, or dentures will be attached to the implants, completing your smile restoration.

We understand that the thought of undergoing dental implant treatment can be daunting. We prioritize your comfort and strive to create a relaxed and welcoming environment at Wynn Dentistry. Our compassionate team will guide you through each step of the process, addressing any concerns or questions and ensuring your experience is as smooth and stress-free as possible.
