Dental Implants are the most successful, reliable, cost-effective solution to replace teeth
Dental Implants: The Ultimate Tooth Replacement
Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements made of three components: the post, which is usually made of titanium or zirconium and surgically implanted into your jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots; the abutment, which attaches to the post and provides a place for the new tooth to sit; and the restoration, which is the part we fabricate to resemble the look and function of your original tooth.
Unique Options For A Unique Smile
Every patient’s case is different, and every one of them will require special attention and different implant treatments. This is why at Georgia Prosthodontics, we offer a variety of dental implant surgery options:
Single Tooth Replacements
If you’re missing a single tooth due to injury or decay, this can lead to larger issues in your mouth and jaw, including having adjacent teeth shift toward the gap. Replacing the missing tooth with an implant is a permanent solution to any shifting problems, which will allow you to care for the replacement tooth just as you would a natural one.
Multiple Tooth Replacements
Replacing multiple teeth can involve bridges and crowns or partial dentures. You can have multiple teeth replaced by implants using only one post, however, creating a lifelong solution to the problem of multiple missing or failing teeth.
Full Mouth Dental Implants
If you have many missing or failing teeth, you may qualify for full mouth dental implants. Considered the “gold standard” in tooth replacement, these implants permanently attach to four or more posts, which are implanted fixed into the arch of your jaw.
Implant-supported dentures are removable dentures that attach to surgically implanted posts. Unlike traditional dentures, these attach to your mouth very securely and don’t require adhesives to remain in place. They also limit jaw recession.
Our Dental Implant Process
For all their long-term benefits, dental implants are considered the best option in modern tooth replacement. The standard process for receiving these long-lasting assets involves two main phases: the surgical phase, during which the implant is placed into the jawbone, and the prosthetic phase, in which the restoration (tooth replacement) is fixed onto the implant. Dr. Carlos Castro and Dr. Nicholas R. Miller are specialists in advanced dental implants and reconstructive dentistry and one of the leading providers in the Atlanta metropolitan area, is extensively trained in both phases of implant dentistry, and our team will work with you through every step of the treatment to ensure that you have the best possible experience. We have created a unique state-of-the-art implant center at Georgia Prosthodontics, and our patients benefit from having Dr. Castro – the only board-certified prosthodontist with a surgical Fellowship in Implant Dentistry serving the Buckhead and Gwinnett areas – provide them with both dental implant placement and restorations under the same roof.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants provide countless advantages over other tooth replacement solutions. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not require healthy teeth to act as anchors. Dental implants only need proper jawbone density in order to remain secure and strong, and in return, they provide stimulation to keep the jawbone healthy … which dentures cannot do! Since dental implants are permanently secured into your jawbone, these fixed and stable solutions can actually restore an estimated 99% of your natural teeth’s biting and chewing power. Furthermore, if you have been turned down for dental implants in the past, Georgia Prosthodontics can get you the preliminary treatments to make you a candidate for dental implants in Atlanta, GA!

Costs of Dental implants
It’s common knowledge: you get what you pay for. When you consider their long-lasting, life-changing advantages, the higher cost of dental implants in Atlanta, GA is a very wise investment in the long run. After all, the higher cost can easily be justified when you realize the superior benefits, in comparison to traditional teeth replacement methods. In the case of multiple missing teeth, the fact that dental implants protect from bone resorption saves later fees associated with the fabrication of dentures, which need to be replaced every five years on average, as well as possible bone grafts. We recognize the transformative effects these procedures have on our patients, so we do everything we can to make your dental implant treatment in our Atlanta, GA area locations financially feasible. Our team will work with you to help you maximize any insurance benefits, and we’ll customize a payment plan for your treatment needs.
