Single Dental Implant An Overview
A dental implant restored with a dental crown can be used to replace a single missing tooth. Dr. Alla Brown offers a single dental implant in her Buford, GA dentist office for patients that are missing a tooth. Even one missing tooth can compromise your smile and more importantly your oral health. If a tooth is missing, the surrounding teeth begin to shift, bone is lost in the jaw and these changes affect the bite which can lead to TMJ disorders. There is also an increased risk of halitosis and developing gum disease.
The most permanent and natural solution for a missing tooth is a dental implant. The sooner you seek treatment for your missing tooth, the more effective and conservative the treatment will be. A dental implant is an investment in your health, confidence, and overall well-being.

“Being a disabled adult, I tend to get treated one of two ways (ignore OR treated like a child that needs extra special help) when I arrive at a doctor/dentist office for the first time. Yesterday at my first appt at Lanier Family Dentistry, I did not receive either of those.In fact, I was treated with genuine smiles and great conversations outside of the normal "professional" dialogue. Within a matter of minutes, I left as if I had been visiting this office for years. The staff was also incredible when it came time to transferring me from my wheelchair into the lounge chair. They followed my lead, took control of the situation without me having to instruct them (ie moving my legs and moving them onto the chair), and made the entire situation feel "normal"! This has been by best experience I have had with any doctor/dentist to date! THANK YOU!!!!!"Incredible Customer Support
"I have a phobia about going to the dentist and it seemed it disappeared when I walked into the room. I have never felt so comfortable in my life sitting in a dentist chair. Usually I am sweating and shaking."I have never felt so comfortable in my life sitting in a dentist chair
Single Dental Implant What to Expect
Dr. Brown will need to perform a comprehensive evaluation and examination of your oral health as well as your overall health to be sure a single dental implant is right for you. Then a personalized treatment plan is created that is customized to your needs and goals. Strategic planning is crucial to the long term success and comfort of the final restoration because no two patients have the same mouth or dental concerns.
The next step is the surgical implantation of the dental implant. Working from your treatment plan, an oral surgeon or periodontist will place the implant into the bone. This implanted titanium post will replace the missing root structure.
Over a 3-6 month period, the titanium post will fuse with the natural bone helping it to support the structure of the jaw and to provide a secure base for the attachment of a dental restoration. Once your implant post has successfully fused with your jaw bone, you will return to our Buford, GA dentist office to have the dental restoration attached. A dental crown is custom designed to aesthetically fit your smile.
