Dental Implants
Marietta, GA

Picture of a Dental Implant and Crown - Lake Pointe Dental in Marietta GA When tooth loss is an issue the results are never pleasant. Tooth loss can make it difficult to eat and speak properly which can have a severely negative impact on quality of life. Fortunately, dental technology has come a long way in the last few years and we now have a wide variety of tooth replacement options. Dental implants are currently the most impressive tooth replacement option available, providing a tremendous amount of value and longevity. At Lake Pointe Dental, we are proud to offer dental implants to our patients to help improve their quality of life.

What makes dental implants a superior tooth replacement option?

For a long time there were only a few tooth replacement options available. Dentures, partial dentures, and dental bridges used to be the only options to choose from. The functionality of dentures left people wanting more because they were clunky and not up to the task of chewing many different kinds of food. Partial dentures often didn’t provide any value in terms of chewing because most partial dentures had to be removed to eat. Bridges are a situational tooth replacement option that require dental professionals to severely alter natural teeth in order to act as anchors for the permanent bridge. There had to be a better way – and now there is!

Dental implants are a superior tooth replacement option because they look and act exactly as a natural tooth does. They are permanently placed into your jaw and accepted by your bone structure, giving full functionality for chewing and speaking. They have the ability to last for the rest of your life and can even be used to support full arch tooth restorations.

The Procedure

If you decide to have dental implants placed it will require at least two trips to our office to complete, sometimes more depending on the condition of your mouth. During the preliminary visit, we will evaluate the area that the implant will be placed in to ensure that no alterations have to be made to the site before the implant procedure begins. Sometimes tooth loss can lead to bone loss in the jaw, if this turns out to be the case we may need to schedule an auxiliary procedure to place a bone graft.

We will take an impression of the area that the implant will be placed in to be used as a guide while crafting the restoration. Then we can begin the process of placing the titanium post into your jaw. Once this procedure is done, the first visit will be completed and you will be sent home. While you wait for the restoration to be crafted at our dental lab, the titanium post will heal in your jaw.

During the second appointment we will place the abutment onto the post, and the restoration will be permanently affixed to the abutment. We will make sure that the restoration fits into your bite properly. It will take some time to get used to the feel of your new restoration. If after two weeks, the restoration still feels out of place in your bite please give us a call and schedule an appointment to be seen so that we can make the appropriate changes.
