Hartwell Dental Implants Recreate Strong Teeth
Are you missing one or more natural teeth? Now, patients who have been struggling with an incomplete smile for too long can pursue a revolutionary alternative to traditional dentures and bridges – dental implants. Unlike its counterparts, implants go beyond the recreation of a simple dental crown (the portion of your tooth that shows when you smile). They also provide a replacement for the root that’s hidden under the gum line, which helps improve your oral health and create a strong foundation for durable, naturally seamless teeth. Contact Lee Dental Group today in Hartwell, GA if you’d like to learn more about dental implants, or if you’re ready to schedule your first appointment with Dr. Michael Lee. We welcome new patients from Elberton, GA and other surrounding areas.
The Dental Implant Process
After Dr. Lee has determined that you’re a viable candidate for the dental implant process, he will refer you to a trusted oral surgeon in the area who can perform the surgical placement of your new implants. During this procedure, the “roots” of your replacement teeth are inserted into the jawbone so that they bond with your natural tissue.
Once the implants have successfully healed within the mouth, you’ll return to our office so that we can design and create the ideal restoration for your new implant(s) – this may be an individual crown or a more comprehensive prosthetic, depending on the extent of your tooth loss. Patients can rest assured that their replacement will be crafted to precisely match the rest of their natural smile in shade and size, creating a beautiful and natural-looking result.
Patients who choose dental implants are able to enjoy renewed oral function, thriving oral health, and a returned sense of self-confidence. You can enjoy all your favorite foods again and even speak clearer! As long as they’re cared for properly with routine professional maintenance and diligent at-home oral hygiene, many dental implants last for the rest of the patient’s life.
