4 Dental Implant Myths Atlanta, GA
Implant Model Atlanta GA

If you have missing teeth that you plan to replace, or you need help securing your dentures in place, then getting dental implants is an excellent solution. Though implants have been around for several years now, many people still have misconceptions or questions about them. Here are some of the most common myths surrounding dental implants.

#1 Dental Implants Are Expensive
Dental implants are not as expensive as you may think.  If comparing them to a bridge 一 a tooth replacement alternative to implants you’re actually looking at a similar price tag over the life of your smile.

#2 It’s Too Late For An Implant
Just because you’ve had a tooth missing for several years doesn’t mean that it’s too late to have it replaced with a dental implant. When deciding if an implant is the best tooth replacement option for you, we assess spacing and your bone health, rather than the amount of time you’ve been without a tooth.

#3 Dental Implants Are Painful
Getting a dental implant placed isn’t any more uncomfortable than undergoing other routine dental procedures.  In fact, some of these surgeries are just as straightforward as getting a dental filling.

#4 Implants Last Forever
Dental implants are intended to last the rest of your lifetime and failed implants are a rarity.  However, ensuring that your bone and gums remain healthy is key. Plan to schedule regular checkups and cleanings to help ensure that your implants stay with you for the long term.

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

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.

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.

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!
