Dental Implants in Cumming, Georgia at Cumming Dental Care
For patients with missing teeth, dental implants offer a permanent solution for filling gaps in your smile. With dental implants, you can get a full, beautiful smile that looks completely natural and that you can feel confident about. Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that remain permanently in place, unlike dentures, but getting the best results from implants requires the best possible treatment plan for your needs. Dr. Skognes is happy to consult with patients in Cumming who are missing teeth and considering replacement with dental implants.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Beyond offering the aesthetic benefits of replacing unsightly, damaged teeth, dental implants offer a wealth of functional benefits. Dental implants help to prevent bone loss in the jaw after tooth extractions and greatly improve bite to make eating easier. Unlike dentures, dental implants do not cover the palate and affect the taste of foods. As implants are designed to closely mimic natural teeth, this restoration is designed to last well into the future, eliminating the frequent maintenance and replacement costs that often accompany traditional dentures or bridges.
Dental Implants Options in Cumming
At Cumming Dental Care, Dr. Skognes offers numerous dental implant options to meet your unique needs. Some of our services include:
• Treatment planning for new implants - If you have never had implants before, we can help to determine if treatment is right for you and then partner with an oral surgeon to have the implants strategically placed for best results.
• Implant restorations - When implants are not properly placed, they can quickly show signs of wear or tear or affect the mechanics of the bite. Implant restoration by our Cumming dentist ensures these problems are quickly addressed and your smile regains full functionality.
• Implant-supported dentures
- Using implants to stabilize dentures can lead to a better fit, less irritation in the mouth, and improved chewing. If you wear dentures, a consultation with Dr. Skognes can determine whether or not implant-supported dentures are the best teeth replacement treatment for your smile.
Are Dental Implants Right for You?
Dental implants can be used to fill in missing teeth, stabilize dentures, or replace teeth that are diseased or damaged. Not everyone is an ideal candidate for implants. You'll need to undergo a comprehensive examination to ensure that your gums are healthy enough for successful placement. Dr. Skognes will perform a complete exam using our state-of-the-art digital x-ray system and will thoroughly check your gums for signs of periodontal disease. If a problem is discovered, it will be necessary to visit a periodontist to develop a treatment plan to restore your gums to good health so that you can benefit from dental implants in the future.
