You may know someone with dental implants and not even realize it. That's because these unique restorations, which are surgically dental implantsplaced in the jawbone, blend in perfectly with natural teeth. Dr. Travon Holt and Dr. Tarem Eric Hendricks, your dentists in South Atlanta, are proud to offer dental implants to his patients at Dentistry at Camp Creek. Wondering if dental implants could be the tooth restoration you're looking for? Read on.

Are dental implants right for me?

It's easy to see while dental implants are so attractive. However, people wonder if they're the right choice for replacing their teeth. Most patients who come to Dentistry at Camp Creek in South Atlanta make excellent candidates for dental implants. There are a few exceptions that may necessitate other avenues, though. If you've been without teeth for a long time, your jawbone may not properly support the implants. People undergoing cancer treatments or those with immune disorders and unmanaged conditions like diabetes may experience complications from dental implant surgery. It's also best for pregnant women to wait until after they give birth before proceeding with most dental procedures. Discussing your health history with your South Atlanta dentist will determine if you're eligible for dental implants and what other options you have.

The long term tooth replacement option

While it's true that the initial cost of implants is higher than other dental restorations, their longevity and ease of care offsets the cost. Unlike crowns, dentures and other treatments, there's no reason to have your implants refitted or repaired. This eliminates the cost of these fixes, which are otherwise inevitable. Since dental implants are a permanent restoration, there's no chance of misplacing them. They also help the jawbone remain stable, eliminating any recession problems that occur with missing teeth.
