For anyone who has experienced single tooth loss or loss of multiple teeth, whether through injury, age or decay, getting a dental implant can be truly life-changing. Implants mimic the look, feel and function of natural teeth, allowing you to get back to chewing, smiling and chatting just the way you had before. Pragma Dental OKC is here to answer questions you have about dental implants!
The Hazards of Missing Teeth
Not simply a cosmetic concern, missing teeth are a serious threat to the overall health of your mouth. Existing teeth tend to shift to fill in the gaps where missing teeth had been, altering your smile.
Where the bone is no longer needed to support a tooth or multiple teeth, bone loss in your jawline is likely to occur over time. On top of that, a person who has been missing teeth for even a short period of time is at an increased risk for gum disease.

Other Types of Implants
Implant Supported Bridges
For patients who may be missing one or more adjacent teeth, implant-supported bridges can be a great replacement option. Implants are much stronger and may be recommended by your dentist over traditional dental bridges. Depending on the damage of surrounding teeth and gums, implant supported bridges may even save patients from full or partial dentures.
Implant Supported Dentures
If you're already missing most of your teeth, experience a lot of pain in your gums, or area denture wearer, than implant supported dentures may be a great option for you. Implant supported dentures are securely attached with multiple implants. There is also no roof plate like dentures, so you confidently eat and taste all of the food you love.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are a less invasive option for people missing one or more teeth. Mini implants are about half the size of traditional implants but do essentially the same thing. Because the implants are fused to your jaw bone, the replacement teeth stay securely in place and won’t slip during eating or speaking.
Smile Restoration Consultation
Dental implants, mini dental implants, and implant-supported dentures are often the preferred methods for teeth replacement in Oklahoma City. These restorations don’t shift or slip the way traditional dentures do. Replacing your teeth is a big decision, but typically never a regretful one.
