Here is some more information about what Dr. Wyman Martin, your Roswell, GA, doctor, can offer:

Dental Implants

Dental implants consist of a titanium post that replaces the missing tooth root. A Roswell dentist will place the titanium post and seal the area. You'll need to see Dr. Martin in 3-6 months to complete the procedure. During this healing time, the titanium post goes through osseointegration, the process of fusing with your jawbone.

When you return, Dr. Martin will make impressions for a custom abutment and permanent crown. Your crown will closely match the rest of your teeth.

How dental implants from your Roswell dentist can give you back your smiledental implants

Have you lost teeth? Does your smile look incomplete? Do you want to restore your smile? If you answered yes to these questions, it’s time for you to discover the most modern, state-of-the-art method of tooth replacement available. It’s called dental implants! Dr. Wyman Martin at The Martin Dental Center For Oral Health and Aesthetics in Roswell, GA wants to introduce you to the benefits of dental implants.

Your dental implant procedure begins with the implant screw which is placed in your jaw by a specialist during a simple in-office procedure. It will function as the “root” of your missing tooth. Over time, your body will grow bone to fuse with the implant and secure it in place. After the implant area has fully healed, a beautiful new implant crown will be placed on top of a custom abutment which is screwed into the implant by your Roswell dentist, and you will have a new tooth.

If you are missing more than a single tooth, you can also choose multiple implant crowns, or a cosmetically beautiful bridge or denture which is supported by implants. The implants help to retain bone which might otherwise be lost due to the pressure of a dental appliance resting on your jaw.

When you choose to restore your smile with dental implants, you can count on:

  • A beautiful crown which will look like your natural teeth.
  • Improved chewing ability because dental implants are stable and won’t move around when you eat.
  • A healthier mouth because you can brush and floss dental implants just like your natural teeth.

When you choose dental implants, you can be assured of successful results. In fact, dental implants boast a success rate of over 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

You deserve a complete smile, so why not restore your smile with dental implants? For more information about dental implants and other dental services call Dr. Martin at The Martin Dental Center For Oral Health and Aesthetics in Roswell, GA today!

A smile is a great way to convey confidence, friendliness, and approachability. When you’ve lost a tooth, you might not always feel like dental implantssmiling. Dental implant restorations from Dr. Wyman Martin at The Martin Dental Center for Oral Health and Aesthetics in Roswell, GA can help you regain your smile.
 
Dental Implants Benefits:
Dental implants can have a positive effect on your appearance while also boosting confidence. They offer a long-term tooth replacement option. Dental implants are actually permanently installed in your mouth, therefore, they are extremely durable and can last for the rest of your life with proper care. By replacing a missing tooth with an implant, adjacent teeth do not need to be disturbed. Since crowns on dental implants are not connected to other teeth, it is easy to floss between your teeth.
 
Dental Implant Installation:
Installation of dental implants is a relatively complicated procedure that involves a few visits with a specialist. In order for the implant to become a permanent fixture in your mouth, just like your natural teeth, it is affixed to the jawbone. The implant will be left alone for several months so that it can fuse with the bone through a process referred to as osseointegration. This is how the implant becomes permanently fixed in place.  Once osseointegration has occurred, your dentist will attach the abutment and dental crown. The component known as an abutment is screwed onto the implant and the crown will then fit over the abutment. Once everything is in place, you will have a replacement tooth that looks just like the natural teeth surrounding it. Dr. Martin, your Roswell dentist, can provide more details about the process.
 
If you are missing teeth and want to recover your smile, your bite and your confidence, dental implants can help you achieve this. For dental implant restorations in Roswell, schedule an appointment with Dr. Martin by calling

How Implants Work

Dental implants are medical devices that consist of three pieces: a titanium screw, an abutment and a realistic-looking tooth-shaped crown. For people who are missing one or more teeth, dental implants provide an excellent replacement option. Individuals can replace a single tooth, a few teeth in a row or even an entire mouth full of teeth.

The dental implant process is relatively 
straight forward, though it does require a few appointments. Your initial work will be performed by an oral surgeon or periodontist who places the implant screw itself. This serves as the foundation for the final restoration.

Once the initial healing process is complete, you'll come to The Martin Dental Center to receive the abutment and implant restoration itself! You'll be fitted with an abutment which is screwed into the implant and a
 tooth-shaped crown, which comprises the only visible part of the implant for anyone looking at your new smile. The fitting process may take a few visits to make sure that your dental restorations fit properly, but the result is a beautiful new tooth or set of teeth that will look completely natural.

How Should I Choose My Implant Dentist?
