Atlanta Georgia Dental Implant Questions and Answers

Q: What is a dental implant?

A: A dental implant is a dental procedure used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It consists of a small titanium screw that is inserted into a patient's jawbone to take the place of missing tooth roots, a post which attaches to the screw and a crown that fits over the post.

Q: What are the benefits of dental implants?

• Dental implants are fixed in place and look, feel and function like natural teeth
• Implants fit precisely, without the need for denture creams or adhesives and are not at risk for slipping or falling out
• Dental implants restore a natural aesthetic smile and preserve facial features
• Implants do not damage the surrounding healthy teeth and prevent bone loss
• Dental implants enable you to eat the foods you love
• Implants will boost your confidence by improving your appearance, making you want to smile more, and leading to more success in personal and business life

Q: What is involved in getting dental implants?

A: Typically, dental implant treatment involves an initial exam by a dentist,
placement of the implants by a dentist or specialist and then several months of
healing time. Once the jawbone has healed and the implants are anchored
securely, a restorative dentist can place prosthetic teeth over the implants to take
the place of missing teeth. In some cases where a patient has ideal gum
conditions, new teeth can be placed the same day as the dental implants. This
varies by patient.

Q: How successful are dental implants?

A: Dental implants have a success rate of between 95% and 98%.

Q: Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

A: Almost everyone who has lost a tooth, several teeth or even all of their teeth is a
candidate for dental implants. There are very few medical reasons that rule
patients out for this procedure.

Q: Who places dental implants?

A: Dental implants may be placed and restored by any licensed dentist. They may
also be placed by specialists including Oral Surgeons, Periodontists and

Q: Is the dental implant procedure painful?

A: Like any other oral surgical procedure, there is some pain associated with the
placement of dental implants. Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry, IV sedation and
local anesthesia may be used during this procedure to alleviate the pain.

Q: Does insurance cover the cost of dental implants?

A: It depends on the individual's dental insurance policy. Dental implant treatment
may qualify for some insurance coverage, but is generally limited to the coverage
provided for a bridge or partial denture.

Q: How do I care for my dental implants and replacement teeth?

A: The same way you would care for natural teeth.

Q: Am I too old to consider dental implants?

A: No. Age appears not to be a factor for dental implant success.
