Rebuilding Your Smile with Dental Implants

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a small biocompatible titanium replacement for the root portion of a tooth. It is placed by a dental specialist in a minor surgical procedure. The jaw bone grows around the dental implant to hold it in place, a process called osseointegration.

Dental implants offer a solution for a number of dental challenges. 20 years ago, the only fixed option for single tooth replacement was a bridge that required drilling on adjacent teeth to include them as abutments for the bridge. Today, a single missing tooth can be replaced with a natural-looking implant crown without disturbing neighboring teeth.

Loose dentures are a thing of the past with the ability to secure them solidly in place with multiple dental implants. Denture-wearers have a renewed sense of confidence as they enjoy eating their favorite foods, laughing and smiling again!

Our dentists coordinate the placement and restoration of dental implants with dental specialists, such as periodontists and oral surgeons. Together, your team of dentists ensures that you have a comfortable experience and the completed result is both beautiful and functional.

Missing teeth can create problems for your remaining teeth and your bite over time - consider a replacement solution with dental implants to maintain your oral health. To get started, just contact Smiles of Johns Creek to schedule a dental implant consultation.
