For patients in the Atlanta, GA area who looking to fix the embarrassment of missing or damaged teeth, dental implants with Atlanta Dental Spa are a permanent and natural-looking tooth replacement option that can help. Dental implants offer many wonderful benefits like improved appearance, function and durability, but first patients need healthy bone density in their jaw area.
Having proper bone density can be a significant problem since flattening of the bone in the jaw is one of the problems associated with patients that have been missing one or more teeth for extended periods of time. If this is a issue you are experiencing, there are options to fix this problem. One of these options is a supplemental procedure called bone grafting.
Lack of proper bone density in the jaw is a problem that can be fixed by a simple bone grafting procedure before the dental implant process. The surgery is simple, after anesthesia is administered, your doctor will take donated bone tissue and surgically place it in the area that lacks proper density. The wound will then be closed and the patient will be sent home to heal. Once your bone graft area is completely healed, the jawbone will be stronger and better able to support dental implants.
Ultimately, the staff at Atlanta Dental Spa can determine if you need bone grafting only after a complete examination. Such a comprehensive examination of teeth, mouth and jawbone (including x-rays) is necessary before any procedures can be recommended for our Atlanta, GA area patients.
Each patient will have a different tolerance for pain during different procedures. Additionally, pain levels will depend on the size of the area that needs bone grafting. To reduce discomfort during the procedure, general anesthesia is usually administered. However, most patients say that the bone grafting procedure is no more painful than a tooth extraction. After the procedure, over-the-counter pain meds can usually be used to control any residual pain.
Many patients will decide they want to replace their missing or damaged teeth with wonderful dental implants. However, some patients are not immediately ready for safe installation of dental implants. Regardless of your state of readiness, a comprehensive dental implants consultation with Dr. Currie is necessary before any procedures can be initiated. A comprehensive consultation will allow the staff at Atlanta Dental Spa to talk about your tooth replacement options and give you the chance to ask important questions prior to scheduling any procedures.
