Dr. Codelli Explains Why The Treatment of Choice For Teeth Replacement is a Dental Implant
Dental implants are the most natural and effective treatment option for tooth loss. Implants are made from titanium, which is naturally compatible with the body and are composed of a post, abutment and natural-looking crown. Once the implants have been placed, they become fused with the bone and act as natural tooth roots as well as function just as natural teeth would. With implant dentistry, there is no slippage or discomfort with your new teeth. Not only do we have dental implants to replace single teeth, they can also replace multiple teeth.
Our periodontists at Solid City Smiles, Drs. Gregg Codelli and Sadja Gaud, are trained as dental implant dentists in Atlanta, GA. If you can undergo regular dental work, you are most likely a candidate for implant placement. In situations where bone loss has occurred or gum disease is present, treatments for these conditions may be required before we can place the implant. However, this tooth replacement option will provide you with a lifetime of natural appearance and functionality with proper oral care.
