Dental Implants

Do you have missing teeth or a loose, uncomfortable denture? Dental implants could be the solution you have been waiting for. These tiny prosthetics are fast-becoming the most popular solution for replacement of missing teeth and denture stabilization.

Your Roswell, GA dentist, Dr. Thomas Lee Dodson, works closely with oral surgeons and periodontists that specialize in the placement of dental implants. He then designs a custom implant crown, bridge or denture to support your bite function and complement your smile.

How do dental implants work?

A small, surgical metal cylinder is placed in the area where the tooth is missing. Once the implant is firmly in place, it functions as a foundation for a restoration, such as a dental crown or bridge, or as an anchor to ‘lock’ in a denture.

Dental implants are often a more appealing solution than a dental bridge, which requires preparation of surrounding teeth for support. For single tooth replacement, an implant and crown can be comfortably placed without disturbing other teeth.

A brighter future for denture-wearers:

Not only do complete and partial dentures fit more securely with the addition of dental implants, these patients are more likely to retain bone and maintain their long-term ability to wear their dentures.
