Not only do missing teeth leave you with a less than appealing smile, they can also cause a variety of problems that may have an adverse effect on your oral and general health. Replacing them can give your sense of self-esteem a boost, allow you to eat all the foods you love and stop the problems that huge gaps can cause.

Traditional dental bridges and full or partial dentures have been used for the replacement of missing teeth. However, dental implants have now become the choice method for replacement. They have several advantages over the traditional devices that over the long run, make them more cost-effective, even though they seem expensive.

Costs Involved with Dental Implants

The dental implant procedure requires several steps, and there are costs associated with each phase. These are unique to every patient. Your dentist will determine what needs to be done to complete the process for you and will share your treatment plan during a consultation. These are some of the variables considered:

  • Initial examination and digital imaging for determining treatment plan
  • Materials for implants and the crowns
  • Location of the implants
  • Bone grafting, if necessary
  • Oral surgery for implant placement

At Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, your prosthetic will be crafted by one of our prosthodontists. We use the latest in dental technology and the highest quality materials to ensure that the finished product looks perfect and will last for decades.

Each patient has unique requirements for completing the dental implant procedure. Extraction of teeth and bone grafting are examples of procedures that may need to be carried out for some patients, but not all. Some patients will only need one implant, whereas others may need several. Your dentist will discuss with you all the variables that will pertain to your unique situation.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Up-front costs for dental implants may seem higher than traditional solutions. However, over time, dental implants are the better investment. Dental implants are superior aesthetically to traditional bridges and dentures. Removable dentures require a fair amount of maintenance, and they can become a source of embarrassment if they become dislodged or fall out when you are speaking or eating. As they get older, they may need to be relined. People often need to use adhesives to keep them in place.

Dental implants eliminate all of those issues. Implant secured dentures will stay put no matter what you are doing. You can eat all your favorite foods without worry or discomfort. When you take into consideration all aspects of wearing removable dentures as compared to having implant secured dentures, the investment in dental implants is worth it.

Implants for replacing single teeth also have the advantage of looking and feeling like a natural tooth. You can smile proudly, and no one will know that you had a missing tooth.

Missing teeth need to be replaced for optimal oral health. Using implants is the ideal solution. At Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, our prosthodontics are the experts at providing you with implants that look and function like your natural teeth. Contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment, and find out if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

Dr. Zelby was recommended to me by both my dentist and periodontist. I could not agree more. the kindness, caring, and professionalism that I experienced at Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta is above and beyond. I highly recommend Dr. Zelby, his assistants, and the staff. I couldn't be happier with my new teeth and wish I had done this years ago! five stars to you guys

Catherine W.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Meghan D.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
