Tooth loss is very common in adults, and Oklahoma Family Dentistry is here to help you regain your full smile in no time.
Nearly 50% of people will lose at least one adult tooth in their lifetime. If you ever lose a tooth due to an injury, disease, or oral hygiene issue, please do not hesitate to ask for help. There is nothing to be ashamed of, and receiving medical assistance for your lost tooth may serve as a preventative measure for other possible health issues. Adult tooth loss can lead to oral bone atrophy, which may result in further loss of teeth down the line. This domino effect can quickly lead to severe pain, trouble eating/speaking, gum disease, and rapid bone loss. It is important to get treatment as soon as possible, and implants are an excellent solution.
Dental implants are surgically implanted into your jaw bone, providing a durable, permanent replacement for your lost tooth (that even looks just like the real thing!) It perfectly replicates all functions of your natural tooth, and is actually stronger and more stable than the adult tooth you lost.
