Dental implants near meThere are so many advantages to tooth implants. It is a permanent solution to tooth loss that is durable and stable compared to the alternatives such as conventional dentures, crowns or bridges.  The implant generally prevents further bone loss, which may lead to additional tooth loss.  Implants make it easier to speak and most definitely, eat. They also fit naturally and when done right, look better cosmetically than their alternatives. And they also improve your oral health by making it easier to clean between teeth and they do not require destroying nearby healthy teeth in order to be installed.

Advantages

  • Permanent and durable
  • They are more cost effective over many years
  • Natural and comfortable and functional – like regular teeth
  • Require the same maintenance of regular teeth, i.e. floss
  • Don’t require modifications to adjacent teeth
  • 90 to 95%+ success rates

The risks are minimal as problems and causes of failure are rare and are often easily treated. The risks include but are not limited to: the bone not integrating with the implant, bleeding, the crown becomes loose or a lack of proper oral hygiene. Every patient is unique and therefore, success rates depend on a number of factors including the size and strength of the jaw bone and where in the jaw the implant is placed, but overall they are well above 90% (up to 98% if they are properly cared for) and are always improving. More specifically, the success rate is around 90% for the upper jaw and 95% for lower jaw implants. This is because the bone in the upper jaw is less dense than the lower jaw which makes successful osseo-intergration more difficult. It is very important to note that these numbers only include patients who were thoroughly assessed and approved for implants by a dentist since they had sufficient bone density and were good dental health. There is a chance of failure even when conditions are ideal.

In our Sandy Springs office you get an all-in-one team.

Sandy Springs: How to Choose the Right ‘Cosmetic’ Dentist

Sandy Springs cosmetic dentist near meOver the past decade there has been a dramatic appearance of ‘cosmetic dentists’ to the degree that almost every dentist is now a cosmetic dentist. Why? Because there is no such thing as a cosmetic dentist and therefore it is unregulated.  Because the term ‘cosmetic’ is unregulated there is no shortage of dentists pressing the envelope of ethics.  So how do choose the right dentist?

  1. Make sure your ‘cosmetic’ dentist is accredited by the American Dental Association and not just a member.  This would be a prosthodontic trained dentist, which is a 3 year post-doctoral dental degree specializing in aesthetic and functional dentistry.
  2. Don’t be fooled by all of the organizations that provide unaccredited certifications.  The only accredited specialties are those approved by the American Dental Association and cosmetic dentistry is not an approved credential.
  3. Select a prosthodontist who performs cosmetic dentistry every day.  Creating the right smile is more of an art than a science.
  4. Look for real reviews and a history of longevity within the field of prosthodontics.
  5. Request a consult and ask to see before and after results.
  6. Finally, trust your instincts.

A prosthodontist will have a significant amount of experience in complex cases.  According to Forbes Magazine the prosthodontist is the rarest dental specialty in the United States, making up less than 2% of the dentists.

So for the right smile make sure you have the right cosmetic dentist, a prosthodontist.

Dunwoody: Affordable Dental Implants

sandy springs implant dentist near meThe cost of dental implants may appear high, and therefore, unaffordable to most people.  But appearances can be deceiving if you examine the beneficial differences and the time involved by your specialist.  While I have written on those issues before, let’s explore the aspects of price and how different dental implants may differ very significantly depending on different factors.

The real concern for the patient is ‘where and how’ to find inexpensive quality dental implant, and most likely the driving adjective is ‘inexpensive’.  This is a result of the perception by the patient that teeth are utilitarian to their daily life.  That’s really not the case, but to put the cost into perspective, all the while considering that your teeth aren’t really as appreciated as much as they should be, let’s examine what goes into the cost of a dental implant.

4 Factors that Drive the Cost of Dental Implants:

The Material:
The traditional materials – prices of cobalt-chromium alloy and titanium are not the same.  Implants from cobalt-chromium (CC) alloy rods are cheaper than comparable titanium implants, but when it comes to zirconium dioxide, then cost of a dental implant may appear to be cost prohibitive to the patient.  However, depending on where the implant is being placed, you may end up with a less than satisfactory result with the less expensive CC implant.  You just won’t know it for a while.

The Size:
This case is a significant factor.  The bigger the implant, the more material, the more it costs, but also the more it may do.  Also, special coatings applied to the surface of the implant, contributing to better osseo-integration with the bone, will affect the cost of the dental implant.

The Manufacturer:
Different manufacturers put different prices on similar rods made from the same material. Some manufacturers include some kind of an extra charge in the dental implant’s price for their brand name. This is a lot more esoteric and therefore harder to explain.   It’s like trying to explain the difference between Polo and Hanes T-shirts.  However, some of these manufacturers provide lifetime guarantees and replacement for failure.

Finally, it may depend on where your dentist gets his implants from.  And this factor may be a function of how motivated your provider is in providing you with the best implant material for the least amount of cost to you.  Some of that may just end up being economies of scale by your provider.  Does your provider have contacts directly with manufactures in China or Israel, where the dental implant cost can be significantly reduced, while the indirect purchase of dental implants from U.S dental suppliers may ratchet up the price?

If the price is too good to be true?

The cost of an dental implant starts from around $1,500 up to $5,000.00 .  Anything less may be an indicator that you’re getting an inferior product or one not designed for a particular location in your mouth.  (Mini-plants, which I have discussed before, are the exception to the rule.)  Short term the implant device may appear to be fully functional.  But if we look at the cost and the cost of other materials for dental implants compared to their operational life, the difference may be likened to the difference between Toyo’s and Michelin tires.  Here again you may get what you pay for and the initial cost may appear affordable, but in the  long term you are going to get a better result with respect to how it functions and how long it lasts if your provider installs Michelins.

A lot of your choice and cost may depend on the choice of your provider.   It’s not to say the more you spend the better you will be.  Rather, a reputable practitioner, who is truly trained in the placement and restoration (and this may be two providers), may be a significant factor in what you end up with and what it costs.  Trust and reputation are the more difficult factors to define for the patient.

Dentist Sandy Springs: Implants Can Change your life!

Implant dentist near meI’m in my mid-forties and have severe gum disease. Last week I had a molar extracted.   I’ve done a lot of research and it seems that dental implants might be the only way to save my bone line as I age.  It’s totally terrifying seeing the pictures of what will happen to my face if I opt to gracefully lose my teeth and wait for dentures.”

Implants preserve facial bone structure.  They are permanent, comfortable and most patients forget they have one.  They osseointegrate into your bone structure and allow you to look good and eat like you never lost a tooth.

When choosing a dental team to have this done, choose one that has the appropriate experience, knowledge and credentials to accomplish the task.  Please don’t choose based on price, because there are a lot of corners that can be cut without your ability to detect them.

Our office has the reputation in the industry and community you can trust.  We offer free consultation appointments and individualized care beyond comparison.  But don’t take our word for it, read over 470 reviews at:

Buckhead Dentist: Success Rates of Dental Implants

implant dentist near meDental implants are among the most successful procedures in dentistry.  But I have to say that over 30 years of restoring them creates insight that most dentist don’t have. Given the complexity of the procedure, there are many variables that can play into its success rate, which is why you should consider our practice for your implant and restoration..

The studies show a five-year success rate of 95 percent for lower jaw implants and 90 percent for upper jaw implants, but these statistics are improved with prosthodontic trained dentists.

The success rate for upper jaw implants is lower because the upper jaw is less dense than the lower jaw, making the success of implantation and osseointegration slightly more difficult to achieve.  The lower posterior implantation has the highest success rate for all dental implants because of greater bone density.

My experience has determined other factors that have an impact on success, such as pre-existing dental or general health conditions or the position of the replaced tooth.  The most common reason for failure is the inability to properly osseo-integrate.  The design is critical to the degree that most dentists don’t understand why they fail.  The actual failure of the implant may be the result of poor positioning of the crown or over torqueing in the bone.  And while infrequent, dental implants may break or become infected or crowns may become loose the same way your natural teeth becomes loose.

Smokers statistically face a higher risk of implant failure. Given how expensive implants can be, one risks wasting money on dental implants if you can’t give up the habit. Other high risk candidates are patients with diabetes, hemophilia or immune deficiencies and rare instances, patients with chronic bruxism.

As I have noted in other articles the value of implants is significant with respect to bone retention and actual functionality, and they are not susceptible to the formation of cavities.  So as long as one engages in good oral hygiene, i.e. with brushing, flossing, and regular hygiene procedures, the chances of inflammation or swelling of the tissues surrounding the implant should be avoidable.  This disease is similar to periodontitis around one natural tooth, and thus requires a similar approach to good oral hygiene.

Key factors in minimizing dental implant complications are the selection of an experienced prosthodontist and periodontist (or oral surgeon) who specialize in implant dentistry, careful pre-operative treatment planning and proper after-care and oral hygiene.   One of the benefits of a multi-specialist practice like ours is everything is under one roof including periodontal after-care.  If you would like to know whether you are a candidate for implants please feel free to call for a free consultation.

Dentist Sandy Springs: Dental Implants

Sandy Springs Dental ImplantsAccording to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, almost 70 percent of adults between the ages of 35 and 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal or tooth decay.[1]

Furthermore, by age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth.[2]  These are amazing statistics about the status oral health.

Twenty years ago, these patients would have had no alternative but to employ a fixed bridge or removable denture in order to restore their ability to eat, speak clearly and smile.   Fortunately, today there is a viable option for patients who are missing permanent teeth – dental implants.

Rather than solutions resting on the gum line like removable dentures, or destroying adjacent teeth to anchor fixed bridges, dental implants are long-term replacements that truly function like your natural teeth.  In addition, they preserve your underlying jaw bone structure.

Whether you are a young, middle-aged or an older adult; whether you need to replace one tooth, several teeth, or all your teeth, there is a high probability there is a dental implant solution to your situation. And we are the place you need for your treatment. Contact us for your complimentary consultation.

Dentist Roswell: How Much do Dental Crowns Cost?

Roswell dentist near meDental crowns cost anywhere between $900.00 and $1600.00 each depending on the tooth to be restored. In addition, the cost will vary depending on materials, complexity and the dentist’s training and experience and to some degree the location of the practice.  Insurance may pay part of a crown’s cost if it’s obviously needed for medical reasons, but usually crowns are covered only on a limited basis per year.  Depending on the customers’ needs and wishes, partial and full crowns made of various materials may be utilized.  Crowns are made of gold, porcelain, resin or porcelain-fused-to-non-precious-metal.  A tooth-shaped cap (the crown) covers the entire surface of a tooth, adding strength, durability and stability. This usually requires two office visits; first to prepare the tooth, make an impression and install a temporary crown. The impression is sent to a dental laboratory which is seated during the second appointment.

There’s often an initial office visit ($65-$102) and X-rays ($85-$135).  One must not forget that there are additional costs that contribute to the overall price involved in crowns, aside from the material and type of crown chosen which are beyond the patient’s control.  A large share of undervalued costs goes toward the treatment itself, lab and production costs for the crown, aftercare and the like.Dentist near me

Dental care on a whole is often thought to be expensive, but with proper care a crown may last 10 or more years.  Depending upon the general wear and tear a crown is exposed to and how well you keep your teeth free of plaque, it could last indefinitely.  With somewhere between 10 and indefinitely, the investment becomes rather modest, if not inexpensive.

If we can be of service or answer any of your questions please do not hesitate to give us a call.
