Do you have a missing tooth that shows up every time you smile? Have you already tried dentures and found them difficult to maintain? Well then, dental implants in Atlanta will come to your rescue!
Do you need a dental implant?
Dental implants are for you if you have the following dental concerns:
- A grossly decayed tooth that cannot be saved through root canal therapy and requires dental extraction.
- A missing tooth that has been gone for a long time.
Are dental implants painful?
No. Getting a dental implant is a mostly painless procedure. The area of treatment is numbed using local anesthesia. Dental sedation is also provided, depending on the patient’s needs. You will virtually not have any pain during the treatment. You will be prescribed painkillers to be taken at home.
Getting a crown after a dental implant:
Dental implants in Atlanta need three to four months to fuse to the jawbone. This healing period is referred to as osseointegration. Your dental implantologist will take X-rays after the waiting period to confirm healing; after which, you are good to go ahead with dental crowns.
Technology today has come up with same-day dental implants that replace the missing tooth on the same day of implant placement. We at Ace Dental Care are adept with technology and digital dentistry that help our patients find a tooth replacement on the same day!
The dental implant procedure:
The procedure for the placement of a dental implant takes about 30 minutes to an hour. You are prescribed the necessary antibiotics and painkillers to prevent any infection at the implant site. Your subsequent appointments are spaced over a period of three to four months.
