Dental Implants in Oklahoma City, OK

Restore Your Smile With a Dental Implant

Dental implants at Oral Surgery Specialists of Oklahoma are a popular and versatile choice for replacing missing or damaged teeth. At our office in Oklahoma City, OK, our board-certified surgeons provide patients with a range of benefits, including full functionality, a natural appearance, and the potential to last a lifetime. Dental implants are an appealing option because they completely restore the missing tooth from root to crown. The design can be used to restore a single tooth, replace multiple teeth as part of a bridge, or even support a full arch of missing teeth. Dental implants are also the only tooth replacement option that preserve the health of your jaw bone and prevent bone loss.

A dental implant is used to restore a missing tooth. Its unique design mimics the structure of a natural tooth and provides the support needed to chew, speak, and smile with ease. The implant post is the first piece placed in the mouth and acts in the same manner as a tooth’s root. It integrates with the jaw during the healing period and continues to stimulate jaw growth and health throughout the life of the implant. The crown is custom-made to look just like a natural tooth. When the dental implant post has healed, the crown is placed and secured to the post with the abutment. Once complete, the restoration can last a lifetime with good oral hygiene and routine dental checkups.

The Value of Dental Implants

It is important to understand that dental implants provide the best long-term value when restoring missing teeth or replacing removable dentures. That is why they are one of the most popular options of artificial or replacement teeth selected by patients and come highly recommended by oral surgeons across the country with the best success rates. Patients who choose dental implants over other replacement options enjoy the following benefits:

  • Stability. Patients can eat and speak with confidence, knowing that their implants are securely integrated with their jaw bone.
  • A natural looking smile. The crown is custom-made to blend with the natural teeth, allowing patients to smile with ease.
  • A permanent solution. Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper oral hygiene habits and routine dental checkups.
  • A healthy mouth and jaw bone. Dental implants stimulate the jaw bone, preventing bone loss, dental shifting, and periodontal disease. With proper care, patients do not need to undergo future procedures or investments to replace their implants, unlike other restorative options. By investing in dental implants early, patients can enjoy cost savings over time and revel in all the rewards of healthy gums and a beautiful new smile.

Placing Dental Implants

The first step in the restoration process is to see Dr. Bryan and Dr. Goodson for an initial consultation. During this appointment, we will present you with all your options for tooth replacement, including dental implants, and assist you in making the right decision to meet your oral health goals. We will complete a thorough oral examination as well as produce highly detailed 3D images of your teeth and face using state-of-the-art i-CAT™ technology to develop a personalized treatment plan for your procedure.

In some circumstances, patients require additional procedures, such as tooth extraction or bone grafting, to prepare the mouth for dental implant placement. When this is the case, patients sometimes require a separate procedure before placing the dental implant.

During the first surgical procedure, the oral surgeon places the dental implant post into the missing tooth socket. We offer a broad range of sedation options to make patients feel comfortable throughout this maxillofacial surgery.

During the healing period, the dental implant post integrates with the jaw bone, creating a sturdy base for the rest of the restoration. When the dental implants have integrated with the bone, a restorative dentist will fabricate the final crown, place it in the mouth, and secure it to the post using the abutment. This allows patients to function as though they have natural teeth, chewing tough foods like steak, biting into apples, and cleaning their teeth with routine brushing and flossing.

Dental Implants Aesthetic Zone

The aesthetic zone is the area of your teeth and gums that are visible when you smile. While all teeth and intraoral structures are important for good oral health, the aesthetic zone is especially important because it is what you and others will see when you smile broadly. Throughout the restorative process, we pay close attention to the harmony between the soft and hard tissues of your smile. Our goal is to ensure you achieve the most natural-looking, beautiful result possible.

Our skilled periodontist Dr. Fuller analyzes the tissues surrounding the implants and may use soft tissue grafting techniques to achieve an ideal gum-to-tooth ratio. This tissue preparation and attention to detail ensures symmetry along the gum line so that when your restorative dentist places the final crown, your teeth and gums appear beautifully balanced.

"Well, I had a tooth — a molar — that was loose, and a considerable amount of bone loss through the years. They extracted the molar, let that heal, prepared the site for the implant surgery. Dr. Goodson really put me at ease. Whatever questions I had were answered. It was very thoughtful, the procedure, and I've had great success since the surgery. I wish all my teeth were as strong as my implant. I had a great experience here. Really nice staff. Very thoughtful with their preparation before surgery. If I ran into somebody who was having problems with their teeth, and we got on the subject of implants, I would highly recommend Dr. Goodson and Dr. Bryan because of their expertise in the area of implants."

"My dental implant surgery was so easy. This staff just makes you so comfortable. Well, the first time you come, of course, they give you the information that you need and all that. Then you get your appointment; you come back. You wake up in the recovery room, it's over with, there's no pain. They do send you home with just a few pain pills. I have never taken one. Dr. Bryan has done a couple of implants for my husband. In fact, we are in the process of one right now, and this has just been another fabulous experience here. Together, we have probably had 15–18 implants. We have never had one fail. They just feel so natural, but you know they're permanent. You know that's a tooth you don't have to go back and address. I absolutely would highly recommend the practice here. I have to several of my friends. I tell everybody: "If you've got to have some oral surgery done — implants or wisdom teeth removed, whatever — I have the greatest people that can do that."

"I had had braces two years ago, and after I was completely done with my braces, we needed an implant put where I had been missing a tooth since I was a child. I have been a dental assistant for 14 years and have known Dr. Bryan for a long time, so when it was time to do the implant, I knew that I was going to go with him. I’ve known him personally and have seen his work, and I could not have imagined going with anyone else except him. Dr. Bryan is the most amazing with his bedside manner; he’s funny, but he cares, and he tells you what he’s doing and why he’s doing it and made me feel so comfortable about both procedures I had done with him. My recovery period was much faster than what I was expecting. If any of my friends or family were to ever need any type of oral surgery, I would definitely refer them to Dr. Bryan and Dr. Goodson at Oklahoma Oral Surgery."

"I was missing quite a few teeth on the upper right side, and then I had discoloration of the teeth at the front, and so I wanted them all to match, and the recommendation was for the dental implants. It was annoying because I really couldn't chew on my right side like I should, so my main focus was chewing on the front teeth, as well as the few that I had on the left side, which was causing discomfort. Well, I was a little nervous at first because I knew that I was going to have to lose all of my upper teeth, but right now, I feel totally confident that it was the right decision for me. They called periodically just to see how I was doing throughout the week, and if I needed anything, they were right there. I felt like it was exceptional care. Dr. Bryan is a great person, and I would recommend him to anyone. This practice in general, I would just recommend them to anyone. It's a major difference. I can really eat now. I'm glad I made this decision. I really am."
