Did you know missing teeth can lead to bone loss? Your jawbone deteriorates when there is not a root to stimulate it. This causes your teeth to lose support, which means a higher risk of additional tooth loss, gum disease, and cavities. The good news is that modern-day dental implants in Owasso can fix all these problems and more! Dr. Jayson D. Voto can complete your smile using a trusted solution.
By surgically placing a titanium implant post into your jawbone, it mimics an actual root. Since titanium is biocompatible, your bone naturally grows around it. This allows it to support a custom-made porcelain restoration to replace the crown of the tooth. The method and materials allow dental implants to provide several benefits that are not possible with conventional tooth replacement treatments, including:
When it comes to placing dental implants, Dr. Voto leaves nothing to chance, which is why he uses the Vatech CBCT scanner to create thorough treatment plans. The device creates a fully 3D model of your teeth, jawbone, and surrounding oral structures to pinpoint the perfect position for the implant posts. He can avoid sensitive nerves within the jaw to promote a faster recovery and more successful procedure.
Depending on how many teeth you are missing, there is a treatment plan right for you.
A single missing tooth might not seem like a major problem, but if left untreated, it can lead to several issues. Fortunately, replacing one with a dental implant is straightforward. Once the new root is positioned in the jawbone, an abutment is used to attach a porcelain crown. The crown is custom-made to blend in seamlessly, both in function and appearance.
Traditionally, dental bridges were the go-to treatment for bringing back multiple teeth. The only issue was the need to cut down 2 healthy teeth to hold the appliance in place. Dental implants allow your healthy teeth to remain untouched when closing the gap. 1 or 2 implant posts anchor the bridge to your jawbone to restore strength and stability to your bite.
If you are ready to stop dealing with a denture that slips and causes irritation, dental implants are the solution for you. Using multiple dental implants, Dr. Voto secures a full set of prosthetic teeth directly to the jawbone to provide a level of security traditional dentures cannot match. Not only do the posts support the denture, but it also stops bone loss to protect your facial structures.
When it comes to the cost of dental implants, the overall price varies greatly depending on your individual needs. Although they are more expensive than traditional solutions, they are more cost-effective because they can last for 30 years or more compared to having other prosthetics that need to be replaced every 7 to 10 years.
During your consultation, Dr. Voto provides an estimate of your treatment and discusses your payment options. To help lower the cost, he maximizes the value of your insurance policy and accepts third-party financing.
After your dental implant restoration is complete, you will have a beautiful, natural-looking set of teeth that can last for 30 years or more. To rebuild your smile, contact us today for a consultation.
