Dental implants are considered the longest lasting, most durable, and most natural-looking restorative dentistry treatment for missing teeth. In fact, The American Academy of Implant Dentistry regards them as the "next best thing to healthy, natural teeth". Marietta Smiles is pleased to offer complete implant dentistry at our family dental practice. In one location, we are equipped to evaluate your candidacy for dental implants, surgically place your implants and provide the final dental implant restoration. For patients who need it, we also offer bone grafting to ensure sufficient jawbone volume is restored before placing implants. Our ability to streamline your entire experience under the care of a highly skilled implant dentist can give you the confidence and convenience you deserve when rebuilding your smile.
A dental implant may be used to replace a tooth that has been lost due to disease or trauma. Unlike other tooth replacement alternatives, dental implants are rooted in the jaw using a titanium screw. This biocompatible and durable post acts as the artificial tooth root, which means implants properly stimulate your jaw and prevent the risk of bone atrophy and premature facial aging that is commonly associated with missing teeth. Dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth, and they do not require preparation of other teeth for support (as with a dental bridge).
The implant itself provides the foundation for a beautiful custom dental restoration, which can be a crown, bridge or denture. In fact, choosing an implant-supported partial and denture can dramatically increase the security and comfort of your prosthetic teeth. At Marietta Smiles, we want your smile to be one that you are proud to show off and one that allows you to eat, speak and laugh with confidence.
If you have missing teeth, it is important that you consider a restorative solution sooner rather than later. Missing teeth can cause adjacent teeth to shift and compromise your smile health. Our practice is committed to offering the most proven treatment options available in modern dentistry. We would love to help you determine if dental implants are right for you. With proper care, dental implants should last a lifetime and they carry an exceedingly high success rate.
