Lower jaw single implant.

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.

How We Determine If You Need Bone Grafting

Typically, we can look at an x-ray of the planned installation area and determine the amount, and quality of the jawbone. In other instances, we may not be fully aware of insufficient bone until we actually see it for ourselves. This could either be during a procedure in which we extract your tooth or when we’re actually placing your implant. In both cases, adding in the additional step of doing a bone graft isn’t a big deal and will substantially benefit you in the long run. In fact, your implant may not even be possible without doing a bone graft.

Dr Berne and his team are the best; professional, friendly, knowledgeable and caring. They made an uneasy process for me go very smooth. I’m so happy with my beautiful smile that his skilled hands gave me, and would recommend him to anyone looking to restore their smile too!!!

The office is very friendly and very professional. My dentist is Dr. Doug Yoon and on my very first visit he introduced me to the entire staff that would be assisting with my care, which made me feel confident that I had chosen the right practice. It has only gone uphill from there. I love that place!!
