Smile Boldly & Eat Whatever You Want Again
The talented team at Atlanta West Dentistry makes it easy to renew your smile. We’ll work with you one-on-one to develop a unique dental implant treatment plan to restore your teeth and improve your quality of life.
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots made from medical-grade titanium. Dr. Watson or Dr. Bowersox will place them into your jawbone, where they will fuse with the bone to create a sturdy base for new teeth.
Your implants will actually become one with the jawbone, stimulating it to produce new bone cells. This will help prevent jawbone deterioration and potential changes to your facial structure that can often happen when you lose teeth.
For one or two missing teeth, we can use one implant per tooth with a new crown to fill in the gap in your smile and make biting and chewing more comfortable. Your crown will blend in naturally with the rest of your teeth.
For multiple missing teeth, we offer several implant options depending on your smile goals, which teeth are missing, and your budget. Implant bridges are a great option to replace several missing teeth in a row. These appliances will attach to two or more implants to span the gap of missing teeth.
We can also secure upper or lower dentures to your implants. Implant-retained dentures will fasten in place using a snap-and-ball system. Implant-supported dentures anchor to a bar that is secured to implants. This setup makes them our most comfortable dentures because the forces of biting and chewing are transferred through the bar to your jawbone rather than to your gums.
If you need full arches of fixed teeth, we have several options available. Our All-on-4® and All-on-6 procedures use four or six implants, respectively, to form a base for your new teeth. They will function just like your natural teeth, plus they won’t require any special cleaning or care. A TeethXpress® procedure works in a similar way but with the bonus of getting your new implants and teeth in a single appointment!
Mini dental implants may be a good solution to your missing teeth if a weak jawbone is preventing you from getting standard implants. Minis need less bone to fuse with, giving you a great option for getting your teeth back.
