Single Tooth Implants in Dunwoody, Atlanta

What are Single Tooth Implants?

Dental implants offer a robust and lasting solution for replacing a missing tooth. Each implant consists of a high-grade titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Over time, this post integrates with the bone, providing a stable base for a custom-made dental crown. At Peach Dental in Dunwoody, Atlanta, we specialize in creating natural-looking implants that blend seamlessly with your existing teeth, enhancing both function and aesthetics.

Why are Single Tooth Implants needed?

Single tooth implants are essential for restoring your smile and oral function if you have lost a tooth due to injury, decay, or disease. Unlike other dental prosthetics, implants do not require alteration to adjacent teeth, preserving more of your natural tooth structure. Additionally, implants help prevent the shifting of surrounding teeth and maintain the integrity of your jawbone, avoiding the facial sagging that often accompanies tooth loss. With a single implant, you can enjoy a permanent solution that mimics the feel and appearance of your natural teeth. Learn more about the benefits of single tooth implants.

Who is a candidate for a Single Tooth Implant?

Ideal candidates for single tooth implants include individuals with good overall health and sufficient jawbone to support the implant. During your initial consultation at Peach Dental, Dr. Reznik will conduct a thorough assessment, including digital imaging, to determine if you are suitable for this procedure. If bone loss in the jaw is a concern, we may recommend a bone graft to enhance the site for implant placement.

What happens during the procedure for Single Tooth Implants?

The process of receiving a single tooth implant at Peach Dental is meticulously planned for optimal results:

  1. Implant Placement: The procedure begins with Dr. Reznik making a precise incision in the gum to place the titanium implant into the jawbone.
  2. Healing Process: Following the placement, the implant undergoes a process called osseointegration, where it fuses with the jawbone over several weeks to months.
  3. Abutment and Crown Placement: Once healing is complete, you will return to our office for the attachment of the abutment and the placement of a custom-crafted dental crown that matches your natural teeth.
