Two women smiling.Are you embarrassed by your less-than-perfect smile? Do you find it hard to speak clearly or eat the foods you love because of your missing teeth? There is no need to suffer in silence any longer! Advances in dental science have made it possible for Atlanta Dental Spa patients to restore their smiles and regain their self-confidence with permanent and natural-looking dental implants.

How Can Dental Implants From Atlanta Dental Spa Benefit You?

Dental implants are a highly functional and extremely stable solution to replace teeth. Since they are permanently placed in your jawbone, their strength relies on an amazing process known as osseointegration. During this miraculous process tissues surrounding the implant grow into and around the titanium implant roots making for an exceptionally stable hold. Once the dental implant site has completely healed, facial structure is restored, jawbone health is improved, new muscle growth is stimulated and oral health is enhanced.

Preferred Candidates For Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great tooth replacement option for our Atlanta, GA area patients with missing or damaged teeth. But what do doctor’s look for in good candidates for dental implants? To help you decide if dental implants are a good option for you, here is a list of traits Dr. Currie looks for in his dental implant patients:

  • Satisfactory oral health
  • No uncontrolled gum disease or oral health problems
  • Healthy gums
  • Adequate jawbone volume
  • Excellent overall health
  • No uncontrolled chronic health issues
  • Willingness to follow doctor’s orders and cooperate with proper aftercare instructions

When You Should Talk To Your Dental Provider

Patients with any of the following conditions will need to have additional discussions with Dr. Currie before having any surgical procedures.
Serious Medical Conditions. You will need to discuss medications your are currently taking or any existing medical conditions with Dr. Currie.

Bone Loss Issues. If there is not enough dense bone in the dental implant area, bone-grafting procedures may be required before an implant can be placed. This will also be determined at your initial examination.

Gum Disease. Patients with gum disease often need supplemental treatment prior to dental implant placement. This will be determined at your initial examination with Dr. Currie.

Existing Dental Work. Implants can either reinforce or replace existing dental work such as bridges or dentures. Please provide prior dentists names and phone numbers if possible so that we can locate your previous records.
