Dental Implants in Macon, GA
While a missing tooth can have a negative impact on your appearance, it is also a hazard to your oral health. A lost tooth means a lost tooth root, which translates into lost bone mass in your jaw. Our dentist and team place and restore dental implants in Macon, Georgia. We invite you to call Northside Family Dentistry at 478-475-1976 for a consultation with Dr. Clinton M. Watson.
Lasting, Stable Tooth Replacements
Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or complete arches of teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post.
Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom-made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
