Dental Implants in Lawrenceville

After tooth loss, promptly seeking a replacement is important for your oral and overall health. Dental implants in Lawrenceville provide a solution that is remarkably close to your natural tooth structure, halting the negative effects of missing teeth. At Gwinnett Smile Design, Dr. Alex and Dr. Pete are the experts offering several options in implant dentistry.

Dental Implant Placement and Restoration

Traditional dental implants are completed in two parts: initial surgical implantation and final restoration of each dental implant. Between the phases, the dental implant(s) fuses with the jawbone in the process known as osseointegration.

The recovery between implantation and restoration lasts from four to eight months. Once they have grown together, the implant and the jaw provide a sturdy foundation for the crown, bridge, or denture that is affixed on top with a connecting abutment.

The benefits of the dental implant are numerous, and include…

The final benefit is especially significant. While dental implants cost more upfront, they often end up being the smartest financial decision you can make. Dental implants last a lifetime without replacement or refitting. Other options, like dental bridges or non-implant retained dentures, need costly adjustments over a lifetime.

All-on-4 and Teeth In A Day Dental Implants

When all the teeth have been lost in the upper or lower jaw, traditional dental implants can be prohibitively expensive and invasive. All-on-4 dental implants provide a more affordable, efficient option.

Also known as Teeth In A Day, All-on-4 supports a complete denture in the upper or lower jaw with as few as four dental implants. With significant planning and strategic placement of each implant, your dentist draws maximum strength from the jawbone to provide the patient with a new set of sturdy, beautiful teeth.

Because their positioning draws more stability from the existing bone matter, All-on-4 is also a wonderful solution for patients who would need to undergo extensive preparatory procedures to build up the volume of their jawbone in advance of dental implants. Bone augmentation adds a significant amount of time and cost to the treatment -- but All-on-4 can eliminate the need for these surgeries altogether.

Candidates for Dental Implants

People who are in good oral and overall health are typically eligible for the dental implant procedure. The All-on-4 and Teeth In A Day option allow more people to benefit from dental implants.

Still, health factors like tobacco use, gum disease, and diseases affecting the immune system increase the risk that you will not recover from the implantation. Patients dealing with these factors should consider a non-implant retained replacement. The only way to know for sure whether or not dental implants are right for you is to discuss your candidacy with Dr. Alex and Dr. Pete.
