Dental Implants in Marietta & West Cobb
If you're missing teeth, you deserve a secure, natural-looking way to renew your smile. Dental implants mimic your own tooth structure, so they look and feel completely lifelike. Dr. Howard offers dental implant restorations to revitalize smiles and change lives.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant has two parts: an artificial tooth root, and a custom crown or other prosthetic that attaches on top. The root is made of biocompatible titanium, so it's safe for your smile. Dr. Howard also offers mini dental implants.
Are dental implants right for me?
You need good oral health and adequate jawbone mass to have dental implants successfully placed. Dr. Howard will assess the factors that affect candidacy to help you determine if dental implants are a good choice for your smile.
What steps are involved in placing and restoring dental implants?
If you qualify for dental implants, we'll refer you to a trusted oral surgeon for implant placement. Your surgeon will insert one artificial tooth root for each missing tooth, or a few to secure a denture, partial, or bridge. Dr. Howard will manage the entire process and mount custom crowns or your prosthetic atop the posts to renew your appearance and restore healthy function.
What's the success rate?
Dental implants have a 93 to 95% success rate. With proper care, they can last a lifetime.
