A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth that takes the place of your missing tooth or teeth. The natural appearance and long-term durability of dental implants attract most patients to this oral restoration option. There are three parts to a dental implant: the titanium implant, the abutment, and the crown. After the implant is inserted into the jaw bone, a small metal post, or abutment, is placed as an anchor to support the final crown. Dental implants look so natural that it is hard for most people to make a distinction between a real tooth and the prosthetic dental implant. If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants may be the right choice for you. If you are interested in finding out if you are a viable candidate for dental implants, Dr. Aiken or Dr. Berry will perform a thorough oral exam and review of your medical and dental history before developing a specific treatment plan. Our skilled surgeons and highly trained office staff will ensure that you are fully informed by answering any questions you may have prior to your procedure. To receive an oral exam and discuss your options, we urge you to schedule an appointment with Oral Surgery Specialists of Atlanta.
The All-On-Four procedure is a comprehensive oral restoration technique that is available to patients who are in need of a full arch replacement through dental implants. Patients who have the All-On-Four procedure receive four dental implants which attach to a temporary denture in just one surgical visit and allows patients to quickly solve their functional and aesthetic problems. Dr. Aiken and Dr. Berry approach this procedure as a team and include your restorative dentist who will develop your final set of teeth. At Oral Surgery Specialists of Atlanta, all of our patients rest easy under the care of our skilled surgical team. If you have lost most of your teeth and are searching for a permanent solution, the All-On-Four procedure may be the opportunity you have been looking for. To schedule a consultation and learn more about if you are a candidate for the All-On-Four procedure or other restorative options using dental implants, please call our office at (404) 351-5335.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Your wisdom teeth, which are also known as your “third molars,” begin developing in the back of your mouth during late adolescence. While this extra set of molars do have the potential to provide added value to the mouth by increasing its chewing and grinding power, they usually do not grow into the mouth in a manner that allows patients to experience their benefit. Without an oral or x-ray examination, wisdom teeth are prone to go undetected until they begin breaking through the gum or causing other oral health problems. Most people do not have space in their jaw to accommodate wisdom teeth, which forces the molars to become impacted, cause pain, or develop bacteria or cysts. The proactive and recommended approach to wisdom teeth is to have them removed as soon as possible. At Oral Surgery Specialists of Atlanta, patients will undergo a thorough oral examination, which may include a panoramic x-ray and/or 3-D scanning of the jaw in order to determine the position and size of the teeth. Drs. Aiken and Berry are extensively trained to administer anesthesia, and our office offers multiple anesthetic options to fit each patient’s needs. At Oral Surgery Specialists of Atlanta, we will do everything in our power to ensure that you have a comfortable and rapid recovery after wisdom teeth removal and achieve the optimum result.
