Bone Grafting Prior To Dental Implant Atlanta, GA
Implanta and Bone Grafting Atlanta GA

A dental implant is a titanium post that’s inserted into the bone and recreates the root of your tooth. In order for your implant to be successful, there needs to be enough bone to support it.

During your initial implant consultation in Atlanta, we’ll take a few x-rays to determine the amount and quality of your existing bone.  Occasionally, prior to having an implant placed, some people will have to go through a procedure known as a bone graft.

What Is Bone Grafting?
A bone graft is where we place donor bone into your planned implant location.

Who Needs Bone Grafting?
If your initial evaluation determines that you don’t have enough bone where you want to get an implant, then we may need to place a bone graft in the area to get a better foundation.

Another scenario in which we would do a bone graft is if you have a multi-rooted tooth like a molar that’s going to be replaced.  First, we would remove the tooth, then place donor bone in the empty sockets to increase bone quality and minimize resorption.

What Happens After A Bone Graft Procedure?
After having a bone graft placed, your body will do the rest to prep the area for an implant. Over the course of about three months, the new bone will integrate with your jaw.

Where to Get Bone Grafting in Atlanta?
Some implant dentists may send you to another practice or a specialist to get bone grafting done.  At Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, you can get all of the care that you need in one facility.  From start to finish, no matter what other implant procedures are necessary, we’ve got you covered.

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.

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!
