Are you missing one or more of your teeth? Do you still have bone tissue where your teeth are missing? You could be a good candidate for dental implant treatment. At Vassey Dental Partners, we provide restorative dental treatment using dental implants. It is important to receive this treatment because if one or more teeth are missing, the remaining teeth may shift and overcrowd. Overcrowded teeth are more prone to decay and gum disease because they can be difficult to clean.
If you have missing teeth and require treatment, request a consultation in our Peachtree City, GA dental office. You may also call Vassey Dental Partners at (770) 676-1291 if you are a new patient and (770) 487-5346 if you are a current patient.
Dental Implant Q&A
Learn more about frequently asked questions that patients may have about dental implants as well as their answers below:
What benefits do dental implants offer?
Dental implants are a permanent restorative solution. Receiving implant treatment preserves the tooth and jaw structure for healthier teeth and gums. Patients who receive dental implants can bite, chew, and speak normally without any fear of slipping. Dental implants can be cared for just like natural teeth. Many patients will also get so used to their implants that they feel as comfortable as natural teeth.
How many dental implants do I need?
The number of implants you will need depends on the type of restoration you are receiving. Only one implant is needed for patients with a single missing tooth. For patients with multiple missing teeth or whole arches of missing teeth, they may require dentures or dental bridges. As many as eight implants to secure a single denture. We will take digital images and x-rays of the teeth to determine where you require your implants as well as how many we will use.
How long is dental implant treatment?
After the dental implant is surgically inserted into the jaw bone, it requires 3 to 6 months to fully integrate with the jaw bone. Following this waiting period, we can secure your permanent restoration. Patients who require tooth extraction treatment or bone grafting services will have a longer treatment time.
