At Georgia Denture and Implants Specialists in Marietta, GA, we understand the importance of a healthy, functional, and complete smile. Losing a tooth can be distressing, impacting both your oral health and self-confidence. Thankfully, advancements in restorative dental technology have provided effective solutions single-tooth implants.

Understanding Single-Tooth Implants

A single-tooth implant replaces a missing tooth with a lifelike and permanent restoration. Unlike partial dentures or bridges that rely on adjacent teeth for support, a dental implant stands independent of other structures in your mouth.

Stand-alone implants consist of three essential components: the implant, the abutment, and a dental crown.

  • Implant Post: The implant itself is a small titanium rod (similar to a screw) that is placed into your bone, just like a real tooth root. Titanium is chosen for its biocompatibility, allowing the surrounding bone to fuse with the surface of the implant through a process called osseointegration. This provides a strong foundation for the replacement tooth.
  • Abutment: Once the implant post has integrated with the bone, an abutment is attached to the top of the implant. The abutment acts as a connector between the implant post and the dental crown.
  • Dental Crown: Your custom dental crown is the visible part of the tooth replacement, which you see above the gums. Like other crowns, these restorations are designed to match the shape, size, and color of your other natural teeth. It is securely attached to the abutment, providing a natural-looking and functional replacement tooth.

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!!
