Dental Implants in Atlanta, GA
A more permanent alternative to dentures or partials, dental implants are artificial tooth replacements. Today’s dental implants techniques offer a wide range of tooth replacement solutions, including:
- Single-tooth replacement
- Full upper or lower arch replacement
- Implant-supported dentures
- Mini-dental implants
Single-tooth dental implants are, by far, the most popular and effective type. It matches the size, shape and strength of your natural tooth. First, we place the implant (or artificial root) into the bone under local anesthesia. Once the implant integrates with the jawbone, it is ready for the placement of a restoration or artificial tooth. The process usually takes about four to six months.
The many benefits of dental implants
With the exception of your own teeth, nothing looks more natural than a beautiful crown supported by an implant. Dental implants and mini-dental implants are the most advanced tooth replacements ever devised. One important benefit of dental implants and mini-dental implants is that they slow the shrinking of bone (resorption) and gum tissue from the area of the missing tooth, thus preventing the sunken-face look of premature aging. About half of all Americans between the ages of 18 and 64 are missing at least one tooth.
- Over 90% of dental implants last longer than 15 years
- Dental implants never develop decay
- Dental implants never require root canals
- Dental implants and mini-dental implants look and feel like your own teeth
- Dental implants preserve jawbone, prevent the look of premature aging
No one can be disqualified from implant treatment solely because of their age – some patients receive dental implants or mini-dental implants when they are in their 80s! At Drescher & Cohen, DDS, we have the training and experience to provide complete dental implants and min-dental implants along with their restorations.
