Treatment options in dentistry have truly come a long way. For patients in need of dental work, there are more options than ever before. But without a doubt, one of the most life-changing treatment options available today is the dental implant.
Dental implants can restore and transform your smile into one so breathtaking; you’ll think it’s just too good to be true! Fortunately, it’s not!
At Atlanta West Dentistry, we regularly help patients transform their smiles with the help of dental implants, and we are confident we can help you too.
What’s So Great About Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the strongest, most dependable option for tooth replacement. If you’re missing one or more teeth or all of your teeth, dental implants can help restore the look and function of your teeth.
If your gums and bone are healthy enough for dental implants, we can discuss which type of dental implant is best to suit your individual needs and desired result.
At Atlanta West Dentistry, we offer several dental implant solutions, each of which you can learn more about below.
Traditional Dental Implants
Dental implants, typically made of titanium, are prosthetic tooth roots we surgically place into your jawbone. While you give the area time to heal, the implant will fuse with your jawbone to secure it in place. Once sturdy, the implant is used for a dental crown or one of our other tooth replacements.
We work with a technician to help you find the perfect shape, color, fit, and design of your replacement teeth. With dental implants, you can get back to eating whatever you want.
There’s no special care required to maintain your dental implants. Just be sure to brush at least twice a day and floss daily like you normally would. And, of course, come and see us twice a year for regular checkups and teeth cleanings.
Mini Dental Implants
A more cost-effective option for patients who have lost teeth is mini dental implants. Mini dental implants are smaller versions of traditional dental implants. They may work for people whose bone isn’t healthy enough for traditional implants.
All-On-4 & All-On-6
All-on-4 implants are four implants that are strategically placed to support and hold a full arch of teeth. Usually, we will place two implants near the front of your arch and one on each side of the arch for optimal support.
All-on-6 works the same way, except it uses six implants instead of 4. This option is better suited for patients who need the added security.
We know your time is valuable. If you can’t manage to make it to our office for several visits, we can consider whether TeethXpress will work for you. With TeethXpress you can get a full set of teeth in just one day. The procedure takes just one hour, and you can leave here with a brand new smile!
At Atlanta West Dentistry, we also offer implant-retained dentures. Implant-retained dentures are dentures that are secured to ball attachments that are attached to dental implants to hold them in place.
Implant-retained dentures are great for people who want dentures with added stability. There’s also the option of implant-supported dentures which work the same as implant-retained dentures except they use a bar system instead of ball attachments.
Take A Step Toward A Brand New Smile
Dental implants have the incredible ability to completely transform your smile. No one should have to live with holes in their smile. No matter what dental problems you’re dealing with, we will work hard to get you the help you deserve.
