There are options for you when it comes to restoring missing teeth. If you have one tooth to replace or you need all your teeth replaced, your winning smile can be restored. How you choose to have this done can make a big difference in your confidence and comfort level. For your best option, consider getting dental implants near Alpharetta at Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta.
Dental implants can make all the difference in the world, not only for your appearance but also for your oral health. Missing teeth affect your self-confidence and your general well-being. Not only do gaps in your smile make you feel self-conscious, but they may also interfere with your general health by making it difficult for you to eat your food properly.
Depending on how many teeth you have missing and where the gaps are located, you may be a candidate for a dental bridge or full or partial removable dentures. This has been the best option for decades, and now there is a much better option. Dental implants eliminate the issues dental patients have with removable dentures.
Dentures require proper maintenance, and as the bone structure changes in your jaws, your dentures may not fit as well as they should. Food can become lodged underneath even well-fitting dentures. Loose dentures can clack or fall out while speaking with people. They can feel bulky and unnatural. Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth, and they do not have the disadvantages of removable dentures.
When you have one or two teeth missing, you have the option of getting a dental bridge. Bridgework has filled in many a gap over the years. However, the process requires modifying the teeth on either side of the hole. They must be reduced in size in preparation to seat crowns with the artificial replacement tooth or teeth attached. While this is an effective way to restore a missing tooth, the result may not look as aesthetically pleasing as you would like. Dental implants can look more like your natural teeth.

Full Mouth Dental Implants with 3D Digital Imaging
When all your teeth are missing, full-mouth dental implants give you confidence unmatched by traditional removable dentures. 3D digital imaging makes the process more comfortable and manageable.
Before 3D imaging, patients would endure the process of alginate impressions. This method is often uncomfortable for patients, especially those with sensitive gag reflexes. 3D imaging eliminates the need for this type of impression. Instead, an intraoral scanner is used to create a digital image, which is then used to print the models upon which the implants will be fashioned. 3D digital imaging provides more accurate models. It also offers more comfort for you and efficiency for the process.
