The most innovative option in restorative dentistry is dental implants. Unlike other restorations that are connected to other teeth or removable like dentures, dental implants are anchored in the jaw bone just like natural teeth. Dental implants offer a more durable, functional and comfortable option in tooth restorations, which are available at Johns Creek Dental Studio in Alpharetta, GA.
Dental implants are designed to work like natural teeth. The “root” of the dental implant restoration is the titanium post, which is a screw-like hardware that is inserted into the jaw bone. The bone in the jaw grows around the post and holds it securely in place. The top of the post that is above the gums is topped with an abutment that can be bonded to a dental crown to create a single tooth.
Dental implants can replace single teeth and are also used in many other tooth restorations. Bridges, overdentures and hybrid dentures can be secured with dental implants for more comfortable and functional teeth replacements.
Excellence in Implant Dentistry
If you have one or more missing teeth and want a permanent replacement, dental implants may be the solution. Dr. Arjun Parikh is an experienced implant dentist who uses the latest dental technology to perform implant dentistry. Dr. Parikh will carefully plan your dental implant surgery to ensure your new restoration will function and appear natural, restoring your smile.
Dental implants have an exceptionally high success rate, over 95%. Once in place, they can last a lifetime and require the same maintenance as natural teeth. You can brush and clean the implant like the rest of your teeth, and it can be cleaned and examined during your regular checkups. For all intents and purposes, the dental implant will function and feel like a natural tooth, but with no nerve root to cause pain or sensitivity.
