Dental implants, with an over 95% success rate among patients, provide the most natural looking and functioning tooth replacement option for patients who have lost one or more of their teeth.
Dr. Mulkey and Dr. Hildreth offer all types of dental implants and can replace one or more missing teeth for a secure, lasting and naturally functioning smile. Highly effective for replacing a single lost tooth, dental implants in Marietta, GA are also used to secure a dental bridge or a denture (a procedure known as “all-on-four”) with results that are stable and improve your oral health.
What is a dental implant and how does it work?
Marietta, GA dentist, Dr. Michael Mulkey offers several restorative procedures for tooth replacement, including dental implants and implant secured dentures.
Replacing lost teeth as soon as possible is important for your long term dental health. Once a tooth is lost, the body immediately starts to make changes to the bone where the tooth used to be. Over time, the jaw bone shrinks and thins. If you don’t take appropriate action in the proper time frame, you could find yourself in a situation where an implant isn’t possible without considerably more expense.
Dr. Mulkey or his associate, Dr. David Hildreth, will perform a thorough examination to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. Not everyone is qualified for dental implants. Patients need to be generally in good health, with healthy gums and sufficient bone in the jaw to support the implants. We offer alternative options for those who are not considered a good candidate for dental implants, including cosmetic dentures and bridges.
