Restore Your Natural-Looking Smile with Dental Implants

Dental Implants

If you have missing teeth due to poor dental care or serious tooth and gum disease, dental implants may be a perfect way to restore your smile. Implants are a stable, natural-looking alternative when dentures, bridgework, and other solutions aren’t satisfactory. To implant an artificial tooth, your oral surgeon first inserts metal posts into your jawbone. After the bone heals, placement of the extension and crown follows. Because the surgery is accomplished in stages, the process usually takes several months and the dental implants cost can vary.

Who Can Have Dental Implants?

Dental implants can restore missing teeth as long as you have a healthy, stable jawbone and healthy oral tissues, and you have no medical conditions that would complicate healing. In some cases, a bone graft is required.

How to Prepare for Dental Implants

Be sure to tell your doctor about all medical conditions and prescription and over-the-counter drugs and supplements you take. Your anesthesia options include local anesthetic injections, conscious sedation, or general anesthesia. Your dentist in Atlanta can help you decide which option is best for you and advise you on the dental implants cost.

Dental Implant Risks

All surgeries carry some risks. With dental implants, problems such as infection, nerve damage, blood vessel damage, or damage to surrounding teeth may occur. In some cases, dental implants placed in the upper jaw may interfere with sinus function.

What Happens During the Dental Implants Procedure

First, if you have a damaged tooth in place, your surgeon will remove it. Next, your jawbone is prepared for the implant. After the bone heals sufficiently, a metal post is placed. It may take several months for the bone to heal before the extension, also called an abutment, is inserted into the post. Finally, the crown of the artificial tooth is positioned.

Dental Implant Results

There may be a period of swelling, bleeding, and sensitivity while your implant site heals. Follow your dentist’s recommendations for care. Once fully healed, your new implanted tooth will look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth.
