What your dentists in Johns Creek and Cumming, Georgia want you to know

Dental Implants

If you have lost teeth, your smile and your self-esteem can suffer. Fortunately, there is a solution that can give you back a complete, beautiful smile. The answer is dental implants! The dentists at North Atlanta Family Dentistry want to introduce you to the benefits of dental implants and implant-supported dentures. They have two convenient office locations near you in Johns Creek and Cumming, Georgia.

When you lose teeth, the bone that supports your teeth begins to diminish. This happens gradually, over time, but when you lose bone, you also begin to lose your youthful facial contours and firm jawline. Living without teeth can make you look years older.

Along with losing bone, you also can’t chew your food thoroughly, which results in digestive problems affecting your overall health. You can also lose self-confidence and self-esteem, and you may be afraid to smile!

Thanks to dental implants and implant-supported dentures, you can regain a complete smile. You can replace a single, or multiple missing teeth. If you’ve already worn a denture for a long time, you can now support a new denture with implants; this is called an overdenture. The placement of implants helps regrow bone, which fuses with the implants and provides the strong foundation for the implant.

In addition to restoring your ability to eat the foods you love, and restoring your bone support, dental implants and implant-supported dentures have many other benefits including:

  • Completely natural-looking beauty, because implant crowns reflect light, just like natural tooth enamel, so your implants will be virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth
  • Long-lasting good looks, because the implant crown material resists stains
  • Long-term stability, because the implants bond with the jawbone, so they won't move around
  • Easy maintenance, because you brush and floss your dental implants right along with your natural teeth
