For decades, dental implants have been one of the best options for permanent, long-term tooth replacement. While candidacy must be determined before we move forward with the procedure, there are surgical treatments that can get you up to speed if your current condition is not ideal. 

Dr. Michael Chandler, DDS is highly-skilled in placing dental implants in Edmond, OK. Our entire staff at Edmond Dental Center ensures that your entire experience will be comfortable, relaxing, and reliable. 

Why Replacing Missing Teeth Is Important

If you have lost one or multiple teeth, over time, your neighboring teeth will start to slowly shift towards the gap in your smile. Shifting teeth bump into other teeth and can result in tooth decay, or further tooth loss. Other tooth replacement options lay on top of the gumline, like dentures or dental bridges, and don't stimulate the jaw bone in the way that dental implants do.

Patients with dentures will have to alter their prosthetics over time due to the changing landscape of their smiles. Dentures can hasten gum loss due to the adhesives they utilize; the lack of stimulation can also result in gum loss.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Because a dental implant functions, feels, and looks like a natural tooth, it can do wonders for your self-confidence. A gap in your smile can be hard to live with; it can affect your appearance and even make you reluctant to laugh and smile. Dental implants can bring back your joy in smiling, along with bringing your favorite foods back on the menu.

Since your dental implant is fused to your jawbone, it won't slip or get loose like a denture. Beyond appearances, dental implants also make it easier to chew and speak. Dental implants benefit your oral health since they do not have to be anchored to adjacent teeth, like dental bridges.

Dental implants are popular because of their durability, efficiency, and strength.
