At Central Oklahoma Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates, our doctors use state-of-the-art methods and procedures to address the loss of permanent teeth. For single tooth replacements, Dr. Miller provides dental implants. These permanent replacement teeth are life-like, biocompatible, and durable.
Unlike partial and full dentures or bridges, dental implants actually replace the roots of teeth so that patients enjoy unprecedented security. Because these prosthetic teeth are surgically embedded into the jawbone, they are anchored in place and do not move or slip through the mouth as other prosthetics do.
Dental implants consist of a titanium rod that resembles a screw along with a dental crown. The rod replaces a lost tooth’s roots and over time, the bone mass surrounding the surgical site will fuse around the rod naturally to stabilize the implant. This process is called osseointegration and the fusion of bone to the implant provides the greatest durability possible for patients in need of replacement teeth.

Did you know: Dental implants and Osteoporosis Because adequate bone material is so essential to dental implant stability, osteoporosis can present an obstacle to dental implant placement. Nonetheless, many patients with osteoporosis still are able to get dental implants. Learn more »
After the implant is stable, our team of oral surgeons will work with your dentist for the placement of your custom restoration—a crown that can be made from a variety of materials to suit your unique needs. Popular materials used to make crowns include durable metals and tooth-colored porcelain. The crown will be designed and fabricated in a dental laboratory to exact measurements determined by your dentist.
Once our oral surgeons and your dentist have determined that you are ready for the placement of your permanent crown, your dentist will affix the crown to an abutment on your implant. When this process is complete, your crown will act as the visible portion of a natural tooth.

After the implantation process is finished, patients enjoy completely restored tooth function, a natural looking smile, and the ability to eat their favorite foods. Because dental implants function just like natural teeth, patients will brush and floss as they normally do.
