Comprehensive, Local Implant Dentistry in Shawnee, OK
Dental implants are a revolutionary way to replace missing teeth in your smile. Instead of relying on soft tissue or other teeth to stay in place, implants are securely attached to bone to act more like your own tooth roots. Implants naturally bond with jaw bone, so your new teeth act and feel as close as possible to natural teeth. Dr. Hopkins is able to use dental implants to help patients dealing with any amount of tooth loss, with treatment options that include:
Single Tooth Replacement - Missing one tooth is often treated with fixed bridges. While bridges solve many of the problems associated with missing teeth, placing a bridge requires altering neighboring, healthy teeth. Bridges may also need replacement every 5-10 years, depending on your oral health habits. But implants are completely independent and replace both your natural root and crown. Dr. Hopkins surgically places the implant post at the site of your missing tooth and tops it with a life-like dental crown. Implants can last a life-time with proper dental care.
Implant-Supported Bridges – Dental implants can also be used to restore multiple missing teeth. By placing a few implant posts, Dr. Hopkins can attach a dental bridge in a way that is more secure and stable than a traditional fixed bridge or a partial denture. Implant bridges do not block your palate and can give you a restored smile that looks healthy and feels strong.
Dentures – Patients who choose implant dentistry in Shawnee don’t have to struggle with bulky, loose, or uncomfortable dentures anymore. By adding 2-4 implant posts to an arch that contains no natural teeth, Dr. Hopkins can attach a full denture. Implant-supported dentures help our patients achieve full smile restoration and drastically improve dental function and the appearance of your smile
With the use of advanced, 3D digital imaging, Dr. Hopkins can perform guided implant surgery, which allow for precise implant placement – even for difficult cases. Our office is proud to be one of the few dental clinics in town that surgically places dental implants. Our patients don’t have to go out of their way to receive complete implant care. We work locally to benefit your oral health.
Individualized Implant Dental Care
Our approach to implant dentistry isn’t cookie-cutter. We take your individual needs into account to design the implant treatment that makes the most sense for you. All parts of our treatment are performed in house – including pre-implant bone grafting and sinus augmentation, if necessary for the condition of your oral health.
Implant patients truly love their amazing smile transformations after dental implants. If you’ve been dealing with dentures for years, or have lost teeth in an accident, dental implants make it easy for our patients to enjoy renewed health without dentures and partials.
