Where Atlanta Goes For Top Quality Dental Implants
Dental implants are quickly becoming the go-to choice for patients looking to replace missing teeth. All over Midtown Atlanta we are seeing better smiles than we ever have thanks to this technology. Conventional methods used to replace missing teeth, such as dental bridges, partial dentures or complete dentures simply do not compare to a dental implants likeness to a natural tooth.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a medical device that is used to replace missing teeth. Using surgical grade titanium, dental implants are surgically implanted into the bone and tissue in the place where the natural tooth once was. Technologies such as high resolution 3D model, can pinpoint the optimal placement and angle within the tooth gap. It also gives us a more precise read on the soft and hard tissues for a more secure hold.
Dental implants require a minimum of two appointments. The first appointment is used to actually implant the titanium anchor into the bone. After a healing period of two to six months, you will return to our office where a porcelain crown is placed on the anchor. Through Dr. Dunson’s expertise in implant dentistry, and careful planning and design, dental implants are made to align perfectly with the rest of your teeth.
Are Dental Implants the Right Choice for Me?
The success of dental implants relies greatly on your own body’s ability to heal. We carefully screen patients, taking into consideration a number of factors, before starting the implant process. If you are considering dental implants, we will review your medical and dental history and conduct a thorough examination of your entire mouth. Once you are determined to be eligible, Dr. Dunson and his team may need to create diagnostic records, which are used to develop the best strategy for your particular needs.
