If you struggle with the way missing teeth make you look, we offer treatment to restore your smile. Affordable dental implants have already boosted the confidence of millions of people. Fortunately, it’s easy for you to get dental implant treatment, so schedule a consultation with one of our experienced dentists to learn more about it.
Dental implants are titanium structures which are surgically placed in the upper or lower jawbone. Once theses titanium structures have fused to the bone in a process called osseointegration they can be restored with an abutment and crown much like a regular tooth.
Anyone who’s missing teeth and wants to restore their appearance, confidence, and chewing ability could be a good candidate for dental implants at our Dunwoody office. Only a full assessment can determine if implants are right for you.
There are several dental implant procedure steps, but it always begins with a consultation with our oral and maxillofacial surgeon in Dunwoody. After Dr. Whitesides evaluates the quality and quantity of bone in your jaw he will better be able to discuss dental implants as a solution to your missing teeth. Dr. Whitesides will work with your dentist to plan your case to provide the best possible outcome.
Your dental implants cost will depend on the type of implants you get and the materials you choose for the implant and crown. The surgical procedure will also affect the cost because the steps differ slightly depending on your treatment needs. Talk to our helpful staff about how you can get affordable dental implants.
Most of the time, policies don’t include dental implants insurance, but it is possible to find a plan. If you don’t find coverage, call Northside Oral Surgery to learn about the flexible financing options we offer that can help you manage the cost of your treatment.
Some well-recognized benefits of dental implants include:
It’s important you follow our care instructions after the dental implants procedure. You can manage minor mouth soreness with over-the-counter pain relievers. After you heal and your crowns have been attached, you can care for your implants just as you do for your natural teeth. This includes brushing and flossing twice a day and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash. You should also return to our office for routine follow-ups and teeth cleanings.
It’s very common for people to wonder how long a dental implant lasts. Although there’s no set life span, an implant can last for 10 years—or even a lifetime. However, the location of your implant, your oral health and how well you care for your teeth will affect its life expectancy.
