Marietta Dental Implant Surgery
Dental implants are now the standard of care for tooth replacement. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or an entire mouth of missing teeth. Whether you need to place a single implant or are looking to have implant-retained dentures, Gilreath Dental Associates can walk you through the entire process so that you can know what to expect.
Whether you’re having one implant placed or several, the process is generally the same. A titanium implant is surgically placed into the bone, as the material is very biocompatible and encourages natural bone growth for added stability. After the implant is placed, a period of healing lasting 3-6 months is typical. Once bone growth around the new prosthesis has occurred, a porcelain crown is placed onto the abutment of the implant. If an implant-retained denture is being delivered, the low profile denture is secured permanently onto the implants after healing has occurred.
Marietta Teeth Implants
To determine if you are a candidate for dental implants, one of our doctors will examine the health and quantity of existing bone in your mouth. If necessary, a bone graft or sinus surgery may be needed prior to placement to help support the appliance. Dental x-rays will be taken as well as a clinical examination performed to determine if you are an ideal candidate for the procedure.
Dental Implant Cost
Gilreath Dental Associates is able to provide dental implant therapy to patients at a great savings, because the entire implant placement procedure occurs right here in our general dental care office. There is no need to see a specialist or travel back and forth between 2 or 3 different offices to have your dental implant therapy performed. Because the placement of the implant must be determined at the time it is performed and greatly affects the position of the final restoration, having one dental care provider perform the entire procedure is optimal for the end result.
