Dental Implants in Edmond
Chew Better and Have a Beautiful Smile With Dental Implants
Our primary goal is to help our patients keep their natural teeth for life. But, if a tooth or teeth are beyond the point of saving, or are already missing, dental implants are the optimal replacement solution.
Dental implants mimic the look, feel and function of natural teeth so well that people usually can’t tell the difference between their natural teeth and their implant teeth! Implants will improve your quality of life and allow you to eat the foods you want.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that is placed in the jawbone and topped by a crown, dental bridge or denture. Because they look, act and feel natural, they let you talk, chew and exert pressure just like with real teeth.
Because implants integrate with your jawbone, chewing stimulates bone growth, preventing the collapsed, wrinkled look that occurs from progressive bone loss as a result of leaving missing teeth unreplaced or wearing dentures.
Dental implants are an ideal solution for almost anyone who is suffering from missing teeth or teeth that are beyond saving.
Skilled Implant Professionals
Our doctors are uniquely equipped to provide comprehensive dental implant treatment. They have extensive training, knowledge and experience in both restoring and replacing missing teeth, as well as treating the supporting gum tissues and bone. They also teach other dentists how to perform these procedures.
Drs. Al Sakka and Koticha have successfully handled countless implant cases of all sizes and complexities, from replacing a single tooth to entire arches of teeth. Dr. Koticha can even perform complex bone grafting if it is needed for implant stability.
As a board-certified periodontist—a dental implant and gum treatment specialist—Dr. Koticha is highly trained in all aspects of placing implants, including ensuring a healthy and stable oral foundation for implant placement. He stays current with the latest implant technologies and techniques through continuing education in order to provide his patients with precise and comfortable treatment and lifelike results.
High-Quality, Beautiful New Teeth
Once the implant is placed, Dr. Al Sakka then crafts the beautiful, strong and long-lasting replacement teeth that attach to the dental implants.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Compared with other teeth replacement options, dental implants are the most reliable, longest lasting and most realistic-looking option for replacing missing teeth. Patients typically don’t notice any difference between their natural teeth and dental implants.
Implants provide excellent chewing power, allowing patients to eat a wide variety of foods they enjoy for proper diet and health. Furthermore, implants don’t require adjacent teeth to be modified, as is the case with a dental bridge. Because they fuse with the jawbone, they help prevent bone loss that results from missing teeth.
Keeping Patients Comfortable
We go to great lengths to ensure our patients are comfortable at all times. Our doctors and staff are known for their friendly, comfortable and professional care, as well as their ability to put patients at each. We take the time to provide detailed explanations of procedures and answer any questions you may have. We also provide blankets and pillows to keep you comfortable, in addition to offering oral or IV sedation for implant procedures.
Many of our patients report they were surprised by how little discomfort they experienced during and after getting an implant!
Drs. Al Sakka and Koticha do not want the cost of dental care to prevent patients from receiving the treatment they need. Not only do they ensure their services are priced competitively, but they also work with patients on treatment plans designed to fit within their budget, including offering zero- and low-interest financing through CareCredit.
