(Health-NewsWire.Net, April 01, 2015 ) Midwest City, OK -- Many residents in Midwest City, Oklahoma, enjoy the advanced dental services of Precision Dental Center. Residents can receive better health and improved smiles because of this clinic headed by Dr. Tennille Cheek-Covey. Precision Dental Center is a world-class installer of dental implants in Midwest City.
"Part of our core values is to offer the highest quality of dental care for our patients, and that means constant improvement," confirms Oklahoma cosmetic dentist Dr. Cheek-Covey, a native Oklahoman who attended the University Of Oklahoma College Of Dentistry and has a doctorate. "While some other clinics simply determine whether a patient is a candidate for dental implants, we can help by arranging for corrective measures so a patient can become a viable candidate."
Dental implants are the latest solutions to the common problem of missing teeth. "For many years, the traditional answer was to put in dentures, because missing teeth can lead to more serious health and oral problems," said Dr. Cheek-Covey, "the adjacent teeth can move into the gap between the teeth, and this can lead to an uneven bite.
The lack of stimulation on that particular gum and jawbone area can also lead to gum recession and jawbone problems. Dentures can help prevent these problems."
The problem with dentures is that they also come with several notable drawbacks.
"The most obvious, which makes tooth implants very different, is that dentures are detachable while teeth implants are not," added Dr. Cheek-Covey, "many people who have worn dentures have reported numerous complaints about accidentally dislodging their dentures in the most socially inopportune moments. It can happen while they are talking, laughing out loud, eating, or yawning."
Edmond dental implants from Precision Dental Center are virtually permanent because a titanium screw is inserted into the jawbone as foundation. It acts like the root of a tooth. Then a carefully molded and colored crown is placed upon the foundation and it can replace natural teeth seamlessly. The replacement teeth look no different than real teeth.
"With dental implants, patients can actually function normally as if they had real teeth again," said Midwest City dentist Dr. Cheek-Covey, "unlike with dentures, they don't feel discomfort or pain when they're wearing their teeth. They can talk normally without having to go through a period of familiarization when they can slur their speech. And they can eat the food they want as if they have real teeth. And of course, they can smile naturally without embarrassment."
Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, however. Patients need to be screened and evaluated. They must have enough jawbone material to support the implant. But Precision Dental Clinic can go the extra mile and help arrange for bone grafting procedures so that patients deemed initially ineligible may become viable candidates.
