Dental Implants Tucker GA

Rendering of jaw with dental implant at Reich Dental Center - Tucker in GAA dental implant is an artificial tooth that is surgically placed into your jaw for the purpose of replacing one missing tooth, or supporting a bridge, denture, or other restoration.

Dental implants are identical replicas of your natural teeth and do not harm the nearby teeth in any way. They are designed to be permanent.

We offer dental implants at Reich Dental Center - Tucker. We can answer any questions you may have about the process when you call to schedule an appointment.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you are looking for a permanent, durable solution for restoring one or more missing teeth - a dental implant might be the right option for you.

•  Generally, good candidates for dental implants should have adequate bone density in the jaw to support the implant, healthy gums, and good overall health. Additional procedures such as bone grafting might be available for those patients without significant bone mass.

•  Age is not necessarily a determining factor, as many older adults can still benefit from dental implant treatment.

•  Individuals with certain medical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or a compromised immune system, may not be suitable candidates for dental implants.

At Reich Dental Center - Tucker, we will discuss all of the above questions with you and help you make the best decision for your overall heath.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants have a lot of advantages.

•  The key benefit of implants is that they enhance oral function, allowing you to chew, bite, and eat food as you previously did.

•  Since they imitate your natural teeth, they enhance the appearance of your smile - raising your self-esteem.

•  Dental implants prevent sliding, enabling you to speak properly. However, slipping dentures can make it difficult for you to speak clearly.

•  Furthermore, implants inhibit bone loss, stimulate the jaw, and require minimal upkeep. They endure for a very long period, some even lasting for a lifetime.

What Is an Implant Restoration?

In Tucker GA, the dental implant process, leading to a full restoration, is a popular solution for replacing missing teeth. A full dental implant restoration typically consists of three components.

•  First, the dental implant, which is a small titanium screw, is surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as the root component of the prosthesis. The dental implant is the foundation of the restoration.

•  Second, the implant abutment, made of titanium, porcelain, or zirconia attaches to the head of the implant screw to provide additional support and link the screw to the restoration.

•  Finally, a wide range of dental appliances, from single tooth crowns to full-arch appliances, can be used as the restoration, often made from porcelain or zirconia for optimal aesthetics.

What Is a Dental Implant Procedure?

One of our dentists will first perform a thorough dental checkup, including x-rays and 3D images. We will create a treatment plan for you after inquiring about your medical history and determining that you are a candidate for dental implants.

The next step is referred to as implant placement, where a dental implant is placed in the upper jaw. The abutment will be inserted once bone growth or healing is complete.

Depending on the condition of the bones, the healing period could last up to six months. Your dentist will make follow-up appointments for you in order to monitor your recovery and make sure no infection has occurred.

Finally, one of our dentists will complete the full restoration during a later appointment. This means a single tooth, crown, bridge, or partial dentures will be installed onto the implant abutment.

How Long Does a Dental Implant Procedure Take?

The length of a dental implant procedure depends on several factors, such as the number of teeth being replaced, the location of the implants in the jaw, and the patient's oral health.

In general, the entire process can take several months. The implant placement surgery typically takes 1-2 hours.

Do Dental Implants Hurt?

You are likely to encounter some pain at the surgical site after the operation.

Also, you might experience gum swelling, minor bleeding, and implant soreness, but these symptoms are manageable by using painkillers and antibiotics as instructed by your dentist.

If you are wondering what to eat after dental implants, try eating only soft foods after the procedure until you recover fully.
