  • Types of Dental Implants Buford, GA

    Lanier Family and Cosmetic Dentistry offers dental implants for all ages in Buford, GA. Dr. Alla Brown and Dr. Amanda Newberry work with a local surgeon to provide many types of dental implants to help patients restore the appearance and function of their smiles. They will monitor your entire dental implant treatment plan for consistent and high-quality dental care.

    The number and location of your missing teeth as well as your oral health will determine the type of dental implants you will receive. Dr. Brown and Dr. Newberry offer comprehensive dental exams in their Buford, GA dentist office. If you qualify for dental implants, they will create a personalized treatment plan for you that is tailored to your unique cosmetic goals, concerns, and budget.

    Types of Dental Implants

    Single Dental Implant

    Even a single missing tooth can cause serious oral health issues. Dental implants are recommended to replace a single missing tooth in many instances. For example, they are perfect for those who have lost a front tooth in an accident.

    We will coordinate the surgical phase of the implant post into your root canal. Once healed in about 3-6 months, the abutment, or implant post, will be attached. A dental crown will be used to complete the restoration at our Buford, GA dentist office. The dental crown will be custom designed to match neighboring teeth, and aesthetically fit your smile.

    Dental Implant-secured Bridge

    A dental bridge is often used to replace several consecutively missing teeth. Traditionally, a dental bridge can be removable or fixed, attached to adjacent teeth using porcelain or metal. An implant-secured bridge is attached using natural neighboring teeth.

    With both of these options, the long-term outcome is often less than desirable and may require replacement down the road. The loss of teeth impacts the jaw and fit of the bite over time. Fortunately, we offer implant-secured dental bridges. Dr. Brown and Dr. Newberry usually recommend securing dental bridges with dental implants for a more secure, permanent fit. This restoration offers supreme structural support for the jaw, bite support, and requires less routine maintenance than a traditional bridge.

    Dental Implant-secured Denture

    For a long time, dentures have been the only option for replacing a full set of missing teeth. Dentures are prone to slipping or falling out, causing embarrassment for patients. If you choose dentures to replace your missing teeth you now have the option to have a removable denture or a dental implant-secured denture.

    Our Buford, GA dentists will attach a hybrid denture to four strategically placed dental implants. These implants will help maintain and promote healthy jaw bone structure. Dental implant-secured dentures gives patients the freedom to enjoy food without restrictions, keep dentures from falling out, and significantly reduce gum irritation. We can help you feel more confident in your smile.
