What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants in Atlanta are a modern and innovative restoration designed to replace missing teeth. They consist of small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone, serving as a type of artificial tooth root. These posts integrate with the bone, creating a strong and durable foundation for fixed restorations such as crowns or bridges.

Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, dental implants offer several advantages. They provide a natural-looking and permanent solution, enhancing both the appearance and functionality of your smile. Additionally, they are non-invasive to your neighboring teeth. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a worthwhile investment in your oral health

The Dental Implant Procedure

The process of getting dental implants begins with a comprehensive consultation and exam with one of our experienced dentists. During this initial visit, our dentist in Atlanta will evaluate your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants.

The next step is the surgical placement of the implant posts. This minimally invasive procedure involves carefully positioning the implant into your bone. Local anesthesia is used to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure, but optional sedation is also available.

Following the placement of the implants, a healing period of 3-6 months is necessary. This allows the bone to grow around your implant in a process called Osteointegration. This is critical in the long-term success of your implant. The final step will be fabricating and cementing your final restoration, which is typically a crown or bridge. Our dentists will meticulously design these restorations to match the shape, color, and size of your natural teeth, resulting in a seamless and beautiful smile.

Dental Implant Care and Maintenance

Proper home care and great oral hygiene are essential to ensure the longevity and success of your new dental implants. Fortunately, caring for dental implants is similar to maintaining your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups can help your implants last a lifetime.

You’ll want to avoid habits that can put excessive pressure on your implant restorations, such as chewing on hard objects or using your teeth to open packages. We may recommend sleeping in a nightguard to prevent any unnecessary wear to your new dental work.
