What to expect during and after your dental implant procedure in our office near Acworth

The loss of permanent teeth does not have to affect your smile. Your dentist has solutions for tooth loss that work for your needs. Today, dental implants are one of the most commonly used treatments to replace missing teeth. An implant can restore the smile if only one tooth has been lost or removed, or even if there are no natural teeth remaining. Implants can last a lifetime with proper care.

Restoring a beautiful, functional smile sounds ideal to most people. However, there are those who lean towards conventional tooth replacement because implant treatment requires "surgery." Many people shy away from this word in general, thinking a dental surgical procedure must be painful, long, or require a lengthy recovery. The placement of a dental implant may be considered as an oral surgery, but the procedure itself is no more complicated than a tooth extraction. Under the care of our gentle dentists, our patients from Acworth and surrounding areas are in very good hands for the replacement of lost teeth.

During the procedure

Our dentists have the extensive training necessary to accomplish the desired outcome from implant treatment. During the initial consultation, our patients receive details of their upcoming procedure, and we are more than happy to answer any questions the day of implant placement. The continuum of care that we provide to our patients sees them from their initial consultation to their follow up care after treatment. With this, we hope to create a greater degree of comfort and trust.

The implant procedure begins in the same manner as a tooth extraction, with local anesthetic to numb the area. Once numbing medication has taken full effect, the dentist makes only a small incision in the gums and gently places the implant into healthy jawbone tissue. The placement takes only a short while, with the overall time of treatment dependent on how many implants are placed.

After the procedure

Receiving implants with the use of numbing medication may sound simple, which it is. Our gentle technique in placing dental implants produces only mild swelling in gum tissue that may last a day or two. The jaw or gums may feel slightly sore, similar to having a tooth extracted. Any discomfort that occurs is mild enough to be resolved with over the counter medication. Your dentist can explain the types of pain reducing medication best suited to post-treatment care.

Replacement teeth are typically placed in a second procedure, giving the implant post the necessary time to fuse to healthy bone tissue in the jaw. Once the post is fully stabilized, a crown, bridge, or denture appliance can be affixed and used normally.

Let the professional, caring team at Thirty-two dental give you a reason to smile. Contact us at 770-423-1132 for your consultation.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
