What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a surgical treatment used to replace one or more missing teeth. Marietta Dental and Implant Center is a certified implant office, and we provide both standard and mini dental implants for your convenience. Standard dental implants are larger than mini implants and are used to support new prosthetic teeth. Mini dental implants are smaller and stabilize dental restorations in patients with bone loss. Mini dental implants are less intrusive than standard implants, and they can be used to anchor dentures. Our experienced dentist will help you determine which type of dental implant works best for your smile.
What is getting a dental implant like?
Dental implants in Marietta, Georgia, are placed by Dr. Tracy Dillon and our caring dental team using the following measures:
- Small implant posts are surgically implanted into the jawbone where missing teeth were located.
- The gums are allowed to heal as the bone fuses to the post.
- An attachment called an abutment is then anchored to the top of the post.
- Based upon your needs and desires, a crown, bridge or denture is placed on the abutment to restore your smile.
If taken care of properly, dental implants can last a lifetime. There are many advantages to dental implants and we are excited to discuss these benefits with you. For more information on dental implants, we encourage you to call 770-435-6888 and contact a member of our friendly dental team today.
