Dentist in Powder Springs area explains the benefits of the dental implants procedure
By Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley
We see patients every day who are interested in their options to replace missing teeth. Some of the most common options include crowns and bridges, dentures, or dental implants.
While traditional dentures were once the standard, dental implants have become more popular in recent years. The solution consists of replacements for the lost tooth roots attached to dental prosthetics. The increase in popularity is for several reasons.
Implants are long lasting – Because the implant fuses with the jawbone it has strength and stability that can last for many years.
Ease of use – Unlike dentures which need to be removed, cleaned, and stabilized with dental adhesive, dental implants are cared for just like natural teeth.
Natural looking – The prosthetic attached to the implants can be color matched to blend in with remaining natural teeth for a beautiful smile.
Strength – With implants, there is no risk of the dentures slipping out of place or falling out. Patients can trust that their strong restoration will remain in place when enjoying their favorite foods.
The implant procedure
Prior to receiving dental implants, patients will need to be evaluated to ensure the mouth is healthy enough for the restoration. Decay or gum disease will need to be addressed prior to treatment.
The procedure involves placement of titanium implants into the jawbone. The number of posts depends on the number of teeth being replaced. After this is complete, a temporary restoration is placed while the gums heal and the bone attaches around the implant. Once the gums have healed, patients will return to have their permanent restorations attached to the implants.
At Thirty-two dental, it’s our priority to help patients in the Powder Springs area enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile with the help of dental implants. Call today and schedule an appointment.
Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.
Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.
My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.
Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!
Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
