So, you have lost a tooth or maybe even several teeth. Your first thought is probably, “What am I supposed to do now?” At Mint 32 Dentistry in Alpharetta, GA, Dr. Morton, can help determine if dental implants are the right solution for you.
BEFORE AND AFTER
Implants, in dentistry, have been around over 30 years now. It's becoming more standard of care in a lot of different situations for patients. Oftentimes, patients that thought they were only able to get dentures, or partial dentures, or had to do something like a bridge, are able to get implants that allow them to have a stable bite, something they can chew with confidently. They don't have to worry about using adhesives or stuff getting up underneath the bridges, or dentures, or partials, or any of these removable appliances. Oftentimes, patients say, 'Wow. It's just like having my natural teeth again.'
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants provide a safe, durable replacement for missing teeth. Dr. Morton is committed to ensuring your optimal comfort and quality care. To that end, we make use of the latest techniques and technologies that allow efficient, stress-free treatment. Many of our patients find dental implants to be an appealing tooth loss solution and are pleased by how relaxed and comfortable their experience can be.
Implantation is the first stage in a two-part process that provides a long-term solution for tooth loss. A post is placed and functions as an artificial tooth root. As it heals, the implant will fuse with your natural bone, creating a strong, secure foundation for the replacement tooth or denture. Throughout the process, our team takes great care in ensuring your optimal comfort.
Dental Implant with Replacement Crown
A replacement crown is a prosthetic tooth that is attached to the dental implant. In some cases, a temporary crown may be provided, to provide aesthetic and functional benefit while your implant heals. Once the implant has fully healed, the custom-crafted
permanent replacement crown is affixed, restoring the fullness and functionality of your smile. Replacement crowns are a great option for replacing any number of teeth.
Implant-Supported Dentures provide another teeth replacement option that can be a great alternative to conventional dentures. Our doctor will recommend a teeth replacement plan based on your individual needs and preferences.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are an aesthetic, effective solution for tooth loss. There are many great benefits to choosing dental implants.
Are Dental Implants Right For Me?
There are several factors that our doctor will consider before recommending dental implants. Some of these include:
In some cases, we may recommend advance treatment for your upper or lower jaw to enable you to have the bone support needed for implantation. As always, your treatment plan is created based on your specific needs and goals for your healthy smile.
Be sure to let us know about any medications you are taking during your consultation. Your health and safety are paramount.
Teeth in a Day

How do I care for my implants?
You will need to care for your implants just as you care for your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing are important to prevent the build-up of plaque. Regular dental cleanings and exams are still an important part of ensuring great oral health.
Is it painful to receive a dental implant?
With the advances of modern technology, most patients report feeling very little discomfort both during and after treatment. Our team is trained and certified to offer sedation with oral surgery, which provides a relaxed, comfortable experience during treatment.
How long will my implants last?
