A missing tooth is still as significant a cosmetic and functional problem today as it was several decades ago. Fortunately, however, advances in dental technology have yielded numerous ways to resolve a missing tooth. One of the most effective ways to address missing teeth is through the use of dental implants.
As an experienced cosmetic dentist in Atlanta, Dr. Jolanda Warren of Buckhead Esthetic Dentistry is well-versed in the process of implant dentistry. In fact, her work with dental implants and other cosmetic dentistry services has helped her become the “Top Cosmetic Dentist in Atlanta”, as voted by her peers.
How it Works
A dental implant is a bio-compatible titanium post that is implanted into the jaw. This post is then used to provide stability and support for a false tooth. Similarly, a dental implant may be used to support a dental crown or dentures. Dental implants have a success rate of up to 98%—the highest rate among all dental procedures.
Although the procedure sounds painful, patients who have gone through the treatment claim that there is virtually no pain. Furthermore, Dr. Warren does her best to make the entire procedure as relaxing as possible for patients, eliminating their worries and discomfort. In fact, patients may watch TV or listen to their own music during the entire procedure.
More Than a Cosmetic Solution
More often than not, dental implants are used as a cosmetic solution. Implants, however, provide more than just that.
What makes a missing tooth so problematic is that the body senses the lack of a tooth along the jaw bone. In response, bone density in the area drops, creating that sunken look associated with missing teeth. Due to the presence of the implant, the body is “tricked” into thinking a tooth is still there, preventing bone degeneration.
