Implant dentist in Athens offers best restoration for missing teeth
Posted by Dr. Anita Mathew
Patients in and around the Athens area who are faced with missing teeth need to work with a dedicated dentist to discuss possible treatments. A dental implant may be ideal for the patient who is seeking a permanent tooth replacement option.
What are implants?
Implants are often referred to as the “gold standard” in tooth replacement. These titanium restorations look like small screws. In a brief surgical procedure, Dr. Anita Mathew places implants directly into the bone of the jaw. They are then restored to provide beauty and functionality. This can be done with:
- Placement of a porcelain crown, to replace a single missing tooth.
- A dental bridge, which can replace up to three consecutive missing teeth.
- A denture. A whole arch of teeth can be securely anchored with just a few dental implants.
The restoration method is determined by the number of teeth missing and the specific needs of the patient.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants have many benefits, which is why patients strongly consider them for repairing their smiles:
- Implants are permanent, often lasting a lifetime with proper care.
- They perform like natural teeth, for full chewing function.
- Implants require no special attention or care – just your usual good oral hygiene.
- They look completely normal within the smile. Most patients forget which tooth is the implant.
These factors make implants a wonderful, long-term investment for many of our patients seeking tooth replacement.
