The standard in dentistry today is the three dimensional cone beam x-ray which can be a very localized three dimensional image that we can evaluate and virtually place an impact way before a patient is actually here in the office. We do a lot of this planning prior to patients coming in. More oftentimes than not, especially in a case where a patient has recently had to have a tooth removed, the surgery, we’ll call it surgery, but it’s actually really not as invasive as you would think because the ability to place that implant atraumatically is something that we always celebrate because patients are usually … There’s a lot of anticipation. There’s a lot of nervousness when patients come in because they think, “Oh my goodness. You’re going to put a screw in me. Immediately they’re relieved when the treatment may last 15 minutes to have this implant placed.
We often get comments from patients that say, “Gosh, that was easier than having a filling done.” Even all through the explanations that I have for patients, they still don’t believe it until it actually takes place. Then it’s also very funny when I call the patient that night and usually will call the patient a few days later and the patient is not expressed any interest in taking pain medications. There’s really no need to take pain medication because it’s such an atraumatic procedure. Patients generally are leaving with a much better experience from a post operative standpoint. There’s much less pain, virtually no pain in most cases. Certainly we’re cutting down on things like swelling and soreness. Basically the whole patient experience is so much easier than it used to be.

Making Your Smile Look And Function Great With Dental Implants
Dental implants are a great option if you’re missing teeth and want a new smile that looks, feels, and functions naturally. Implants won’t slip out of place, and they can be cared for like natural teeth – just brush and floss your new teeth!
Atlanta West Dentistry in Marietta, GA works with a skilled lab technician who will help you determine the perfect shape, fit, color, and general design of your new teeth. You can achieve a beautiful, realistic, and functional smile that you will feel great about.
Depending on your smile’s needs, we may recommend any of the following implant options:
- Traditional Dental Implants
Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots (usually made of titanium) that are surgically placed into your jawbone. After a short healing period, the implant fuses with your jawbone to create a sturdy foundation for a dental crown or other dental prosthesis.
- Mini Implants
Mini implants are simply smaller implants that we can place if your jawbone isn’t strong enough to support traditional implants.
- All-on-4® Implants
This is a popular solution for those who need a full arch of replacement teeth, and it’s performed in one day! Using local anesthetic to fully numb your mouth, we will extract any teeth that need to be removed, strategically place four implants to provide the most support possible, and then attach your new teeth in just one visit.
- All-on-6 Implants
All-on-6 implants work just like All-on-4® implants except that six implants are used instead of four. We may recommend this technique if your mouth requires the extra stability.
- Implant-Retained And Implant-Supported Dentures
Implant-retained dentures are secured using dental implants with ball attachments. This design is great if you want dentures with the extra security of dental implants. Implant-supported dentures work much the same way as implant-retained dentures except that they use a bar to secure the denture.
The TeethXpress® implant service at Atlanta West Dentistry in Marietta, GA allows you to have new teeth after just one visit! We’ll provide you with temporary replacements while your final restorations are being created.
Comfortably Receiving Your Dental Implants (Even In The Same Day!)
If you need a tooth or many teeth extracted to better benefit from implants, we can gently do so. We also offer bone grafts to create enough support for your implant placement.
