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

Don’t let missing or severely damaged teeth affect your smile. Turn to dental bridges for help!

Tooth loss can be embarrassing and a difficult problem to face, yet millions of Americans deal with one or more missing teeth. If you are currently researching your treatment options and feeling overwhelmed, your Roswell, GA dentist, Dr. Wyman Martin, is here to take the frustration out of the treatment process. Learn more about how dental bridges can help.

What exactly is a dental bridge?

This fixed dental appliance is typically designed to replace a missing tooth, but may also be used to replace multiple missing teeth in a row. It uses two dental crowns to secure it in place, with a false tooth or teeth in between the two crowns that are used to fill the gap.

What are the benefits of getting a dental bridge?

There are several advantages to getting a dental bridge in Roswell:

They look natural

A fixed dental bridge is not only a great way to fill the gap caused by a missing tooth, but it can also improve the overall look, shape and color of teeth that need to be crowned to support the restoration. These artificial teeth are made from porcelain, which resembles the look of a natural tooth and makes the restoration stain-resistant.

They stay in place

The dental bridge is cemented into place through dental crowns, you won’t have to worry about removing them to clean them like you would dentures. However, we will give you tips on the ways to properly care and clean your dental bridge.

They can strengthen teeth

If the teeth on either side of the gap are also cracked, broken or damaged in any way then placing these dental crowns over them will actually help to strengthen these teeth and prevent further damage.

They last many years

Dental bridges are made from durable, resilient material that has to be able to withstand strong chewing forces. This means that they will last you many years, as long as you care for them properly. Even though no restoration is as good as natural teeth, bridges can last anywhere from 5 years to 15 years or longer.

They aren’t invasive

Getting dental implants requires multiple surgeries and takes several months, but getting a dental bridge is far less invasive, doesn’t require any surgeries and only takes a couple of visits.

The Martin Dental Center For Oral Health and Aesthetics is dedicated to giving you the smile you want. If you are interested in any of the cosmetic or restorative treatment options we offer at our Roswell, GA office, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation with Dr. Martin today.

If you have a tooth that’s suffered trauma or decay, you may be wondering how much longer you’ll get to keep it. Fortunately, there is a dental crownscommon and straightforward dental procedure that could help you save it. Receiving a dental crown can extend the longevity of a weakened tooth and protect it from further damage.


A crown is a covering for a damaged tooth that helps restore both its strength and appearance. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials,--most commonly metal, porcelain, or ceramic. Some back teeth receive metal crowns for their additional strength and durability, while most front teeth are crowned with porcelain or ceramic to match the color of natural teeth.


Reasons your dentist may recommend a crown include:

  • Fractured teeth: Trauma can lead to internal fractures that cause pain when you bite down. A crown provides support to hold the tooth together, alleviating stress along the fracture lines to relieve your pain.
  • Extensive decay: When much of the tooth's structure has been replaced by fillings, the tooth becomes weak and prone to breaking. A crown will help it withstand the pressure of chewing and protect it from further decay.
  • Root canal: Receiving a crown is an essential step in saving a tooth with root canal therapy. Once the decayed and inflamed parts have been removed, a crown both stabilizes the remaining structure and protects it from future fracture.
  • Worn-down teeth: A tooth grinding habit (bruxism) or a misaligned bite can place extra pressure on certain teeth, leading to excessive wear. A crown can restore a tooth to its original shape and reduce the risk of additional damage.
