Dental Implants In Marietta
Dr. Thornton is a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
If you’ve ever tried replacing one or more missing teeth with a traditional crown, bridge, or denture but weren’t happy with the results, consider switching to dental implants. Dental implants are the latest advancement for replacing missing teeth. Whether you have a tooth that needs extraction or are trying to fix a missing tooth, call Dr. Thornton for a dental implants consultation. The benefit of dental implants, as opposed to traditional restorative options, is that implants actually preserve your natural tooth structure providing you with a stable, durable, and esthetic option. They also restore the appearance of your smile, boosting your confidence as well as your smile’s functionality.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Implants are titanium posts that are placed in the jaw. Why titanium? Because it’s known for being a biocompatible metal.
During the first phase of your procedure, we'll ensure that implants are a good choice for your situation. These implants will encourage the growth of new bone tissue resulting in a strong, natural bond between your jaw and your new restoration. Because of this perfect fit between your implant and jaw receiving an implant-supported restoration is almost like having your natural teeth back again. Once the implant is placed, and the bone has healed, the restoration of the tooth begins.
In the second phase of your treatment, you'll return to Thornton Dental Wellness in Marietta, GA to have your restoration attached. Dental implants are versatile enough to be paired with everything from a single crown to a bridge, partial, or full denture. When your new restoration is finally in place, you can look forward to enjoying natural functionality and appearance again.
