Marietta Dental Implants
For many years, dentures were the only solution for missing teeth. With all the types of disease and infection requiring the extraction of sick teeth, many people were suddenly stuck with inconvenient and often uncomfortable dentures. Thankfully, dental implants are now available to replace missing or broken teeth.
Dental implants, normally manufactured of metal or ceramic, are structures that are anchored to the jawbone or other metal framework installed in the mouth. In some cases, implants can be used as a simple way to keep dentures in place.
Not all patients are good candidates for dental implants; proper bone density and a strong immune system are required. Unlike most other dental appliances, surgery is necessary to install implants, and a number of follow up appointments may be required. Anesthesia and antibiotics are almost always used for pain management and to avoid infection. And, more so than with many other dental appliances, strict oral hygiene is required to install and maintain dental implants.
