Missing Teeth and Dental Implants in Atlanta

It’s a deceptively simple idea: replace a missing tooth by attaching an artificial one directly to the patient’s jaw. It’s an idea that has been around for a thousand years or more, but in the last half century, it has become an exact science. Dental implants are one of the specialties offered at Flax Dental in Atlanta.

First, let’s clarify one point: a dental implant refers not to the artificial tooth, but to the titanium post that is embedded in the jaw. It goes where the tooth root used to be, and because of that, helps to prevent bone recession. An artificial tooth sits on top of the post.

A bridge used to be the only real option for people who wanted to replace a missing tooth. Not anymore. The American Dental Association says that dental implants are one of the biggest advances in dentistry. They look and function just like a natural tooth.

Even people who are missing all of their teeth can benefit from implants. Implant dentures are a major step forward in artificial teeth. They are far more secure than traditional dentures.

If you have lost one or more of your natural teeth, dental implants may be just what you’ve been hoping for. Call us at Flax Dental in Atlanta to see if you are a viable candidate. We also provide sedation dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening. Make an appointment with us today.
