Implants & Restorative Care
Restore Your Lost Smile
When dental problems occur, we are faced with any number of questions and fears about pain and costs of treatment. At Alpharetta Comprehensive Dentistry, Dr. Minniti and his hygienist team understand that balancing health care priorities is important to everyone.
The best course of action to manage your oral health is to begin with a complete dental examination. Accompanied by necessary digital dental x-rays and intraoral photographs, Dr. Minniti can provide you with a full diagnosis and recommended treatment plan to keep your smile healthy and pain-free.
Dental implants have many applications that can benefit patients who have lost a single tooth or multiple teeth. These small surgical cylinders function as the tooth “root” to replace a missing tooth.
Dental implants serve as the support foundation for a crown or bridge; they can also be used to stabilize dentures to help denture-wearers eat, laugh and smile with confidence.
Dr. Minniti places and restores dental implants from start to finish in our office. Our patients enjoy the convenience of having all of their dentistry completed in one location instead of driving around to multiple providers.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Minniti will examine your teeth and evaluate your overall oral health to plan your dental implant restoration. In some cases, he may recommend a grafting procedure to help replace lost bone and provide proper support for the implant.
If a tooth must be removed, Dr. Minniti will perform the surgical extraction and place an “immediate” dental implant with a replacement temporary tooth for healing until the area is ready for a final restoration.
Implant Supported Dentures
Denture wearers are celebrating the use of dental implants to build a solid support foundation for their complete and partial dentures.
Dr. Minniti has helped a number of patients that have worn dentures for years – loose, rubbing dentures were just a way of life for them. With the placement of dental implants and a denture designed with special attachments, implant-stabilized dentures have helped these patients chew properly and smile with confidence!
Dental implants have been in use in dentistry for nearly 50 years to replace missing teeth. Dr. Minniti provides dental implant placement in the comfort of our office. He will also design an implant denture to suit both your oral health needs and your goals for your smile appearance.
Missing Tooth Replacement
If you have lost a permanent tooth, you probably have experienced the challenges that missing teeth present for chewing properly, or that awkward, self-conscious feeling when you smile.
Not only do missing teeth create problems for daily routines, they can also cause other oral health issues over time.
When teeth are lost, the surrounding teeth shift and move into the empty space. This can lead to more difficulties such as tooth fractures or bone loss.
Third molars, or wisdom teeth, are the exception. Most patients do not have room for these and they difficult to clean. Generally they are recommended for removal.
Functional adult teeth should be replaced if they are lost due to decay or trauma.
