Convenient, Same-Day Dental Implants in Georgia
Most adults experience tooth loss at some point in their lifetime. Considering the negative impacts tooth loss can have, replacing missing teeth should be a priority. Fortunately, there are several tooth replacement options available—one of them being dental implants.
Thanks to TeethXpress, North Atlanta Family Dentistry offers same-day dental implants in Georgia, making the process straightforward and convenient for patients.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer one of the most reliable and long-term solutions for replacing missing or damaged teeth. They consist of a modern tooth replacement solution that uses titanium posts surgically placed into your jawbone. These titanium posts serve as the roots for the replacement teeth.
After surgical placement, the posts remain in place to fuse with the bone in a process known as osseointegration. This process allows the titanium posts to stabilize and become firm artificial roots that provide the replacement teeth with the support they need.
Types of Dental Implants
There are different types of dental implants available, depending on the number of teeth you need to replace.
Single-Tooth Dental Implants
As the name suggests, single-tooth implants replace a single missing tooth. However, single-tooth implants actually have three parts. This often means that patients usually need at least three procedures to complete the treatment.
These dental implants contain a titanium post, abutment, and crown. The abutment connects the titanium post to the crown, the implant’s visible part that serves as the new tooth.
The crown is often made of porcelain or ceramic, with its color made to match that of the surrounding teeth to make it indistinguishable.
Full-Arch Dental Implants
Full-arch dental implants replace the teeth in your entire arch. Most full-arch dental implants use multiple implants that are attached to a fixed prosthesis. However, in some cases, patients opt for the removable option, known as implant-supported dentures.
The process of getting fitted with implant-supported dentures involves placing multiple implants and then attaching removable dentures to them.
Although all dental implant procedures previously required multiple appointments, thanks to TeethXpress, you can now get same-day dental implants in Georgia.
What Is TeethXpress?
TeethXpress consists of a form of treatment that allows for faster placement of dental implants. This type of treatment also proves useful for patients who have low bone density. In addition, since the implant doesn’t have a machined collar, it improves the success of osseointegration without the patient having to turn to a bone grafting procedure.
How Is TeethXpress Placed?
Although the TeethXpress procedure can be done in one day, it still requires a surgical procedure, just like other types of dental implants.
The procedure begins with an initial consultation during which one of our dentists will determine if you are the right candidate for the treatment. If you are, the dentist will take an impression of your mouth and then use this impression to create your replacement teeth.
At the start of the implant surgery, we will sedate you and then make small incisions in your gums to expose the bone underneath. Next, we will drill holes into the jawbone and place the implant posts inside.
Finally, we will suture your gums closed and secure the replacement teeth in place before you leave our office with your permanent replacement teeth.
