May 29, 2024

At Korb & Taylor Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in Suwanee, GA, we specialize in providing top-tier dental implants. Dental implants are a revolutionary solution for tooth replacement, offering a permanent, stable, and natural-looking option for individuals with missing teeth. 

Benefits of Dental Implants 

Dental implants offer numerous advantages over traditional tooth replacement methods. They: 

  • Preserve Jawbone Health: Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss that typically occurs with missing teeth. 
  • Enhance Aesthetics: Implants look and feel like natural teeth, providing a seamless appearance. 
  • Improve Functionality: Unlike dentures, dental implants are stable and do not shift, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. 
  • Longevity: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective long-term solution. 

The Dental Implant Procedure 

Understanding the dental implant process can help alleviate any concerns. Here’s a step-by-step guide: 

Initial Consultation 

Your journey begins with a thorough consultation at our Suwanee office. During this visit, we will evaluate your oral health, take detailed scans, and discuss your options for tooth replacement. This ensures we create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs. 

Implant Placement 

The next step is the surgical placement of the implant. This involves inserting a titanium post into the jawbone, which serves as a sturdy foundation for the new tooth. Our oral surgeons are experts in performing this procedure with precision and care, ensuring minimal discomfort and optimal results. 

Osseointegration 

After the implant is placed, a process called osseointegration occurs. This is where the implant fuses with the jawbone, creating a strong and stable base. This phase can take a few months, but it is crucial for the success of the implant. 

Abutment Placement 

Once osseointegration is complete, an abutment is attached to the implant. This small connector piece will hold the new tooth securely in place. 

Crown Placement 

The final step is attaching the custom-made crown to the abutment. The crown is designed to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, ensuring a flawless appearance. 

Caring for Your Dental Implants 

Proper care is essential for maintaining the longevity and functionality of your dental implants. Here are some tips to keep your implants in excellent condition: 

  • Maintain Oral Hygiene: Brush and floss regularly to keep the implant and surrounding gums clean. 
  • Regular Check-ups: Visit our office for regular dental check-ups to monitor the health of your implant and address any potential issues early. 
  • Avoid Hard Foods: Be cautious with very hard foods that could damage the implant or crown. 
  • Healthy Lifestyle: Maintain a balanced diet and avoid smoking, as it can negatively affect the success of the implant.
