Getting a dental implant is a detailed process that may even require other treatments to be done ahead of time to get your mouth ready.
A dental implant is a post (typically made from titanium) that’s inserted into the jawbone. Getting an implant in Atlanta is a great way to replace missing teeth whether it be a single tooth, several, or even all of your teeth. To ensure that your implant is successful and can withstand the day-to-day pressure of biting and chewing we need to ensure that there will be a sufficient amount of bone to sturdily hold it in place. In some cases where the jaw is lacking, we can do a separate procedure known as bone grafting which will give you enough stable bone to make the implant possible.
Some Atlanta residents may be inclined to live with the gap caused by having a tooth removed, especially if the space doesn’t show when they smile. The decision not to replace a missing tooth just because it’s not visible can actually lead to some unwanted side effects.

Once you get teeth pulled in Atlanta, or as you age, your bone gradually deteriorates. As a result, your denture, which was very snug to begin with, gets looser and doesn’t fit as well. Luckily there are some things that you can do to improve the fit of your appliance.
Getting a partial denture in Atlanta is a great and economical way to replace several missing teeth. In the beginning, and occasionally throughout the years of wearing this appliance, it may become a bit irritating. Usually, we can easily fix these issues by making adjustments to your partial.
