Dr. Currie Discusses The Dental Implant Process
Once our patients have made the important decision to fix their lost or damaged teeth at Atlanta Dental Spa, their natural-looking replacement teeth will be made up of three separate parts; the fixture piece, the abutment piece and the crown or replacement tooth. These three parts can be installed in five simple stages at Dr. Currie’s office near Atlanta, GA:
Stage One: Patients will first undergo a comprehensive examination with one of the doctors at Atlanta Dental Spa to access the condition of their oral health, jawbone density, and overall health.
Stage Two: Next, the patient will undergo a small surgical procedure where the artificial root called a fixture is implanted directly and permanently into the jawbone. The patient will then be sent home for the first period of healing.
Stage Three: The third step involves attaching a middle piece called an abutment, to the fixture piece that is attached to the jawbone. Sometimes the tissues have grown around the piece and need to be cut back. After this step, the patient will be send home for another period of healing.
Stage Four: During the fourth stage Dr. Currie will carefully craft the replacement tooth to precisely match the texture, shape and color of your real teeth. This stage is particularly important in ensuring that your smile is natural-looking.
Stage Five: In the final stage, Dr. Currie will carefully connect the crown or artificial tooth to the abutment piece. Once all of the pieces have healed properly, patients can enjoy their amazing new smile!
