Your local oral surgeon in Marietta may recommend same day implants
Advances in the field of dentistry provide today’s patients with better treatment options. Our doctors remain at the forefront of dental technology, bringing innovative advances into our practice to benefit our patients. One such advanced treatment is same day implants.
In the area of tooth replacement, dental implants are most requested option. Patients have realized the immense advantages available with this form of treatment, which is designed to replace the entire tooth structure, not just the crown. Implants are inserted into the jawbone in a safe, effective procedure performed by a local oral surgeon in our comfortable Marietta dental practice.
Dental implants, because they replace missing roots, provide benefit to the jawbone as well as to chewing function and aesthetics. Patients who replace missing teeth with dental implants often forget that their restored smile is not the one they were born with. Implants lead to the greatest degree of stability for restorations, and function so much like natural teeth that the jawbone continues to receive the stimulation necessary for retention.
Until recently, the implant procedure took months to complete, most of which fell into the healing phase. After implants were inserted, gum tissue would be sutured over the post, allowing it to remain “undisturbed” during the process of osseointegration, in which bone would fuse to the implant. Today, we know that placing restorations immediately actually facilitates the healing process. Same day implants also mean that patients do not have to spend time without teeth.
Your dentist at Thirty-two Dental can help you determine if same day implants are right for you. During your consultation visit, an examination will be performed to confirm jawbone structure is adequate to support implants. Your same day implant procedure can be scheduled after this initial visit. When bone density is lacking, bone grafting may be performed prior to the implant procedure.
Tooth loss no longer has to mean a dental bridge or dentures. Contact our office for your consultation to see how dental implants can restore your smile.
