Dental ImplantsGeorge Washington wore primitive dentures made of ivory and human teeth. Today's tooth replacements are far more functional and attractive. Whether you need to replace one, two, or all of your teeth, dental implants from Smart Family Dental Care in Norcross, GA, will rebuild your smile safely and comfortably! Smart Family's Dr. Orson Baek is the dentist with the skills and artistry to give you great oral function and smile aesthetics—read here about how his services can benefit you!

The Dental Implant

It's fashioned from top-notch materials:

  1. A titanium root (the actual implant itself)
  2. A metal alloy extension post
  3. A custom-made porcelain crown

Placed by your dentist during an efficient, in-office oral surgery at Smart Family Dental Care in Norcross, GA, your dental implant will bond securely to your jaw bone. The bonding process, called osseointegration, takes months, but when it is finished, the extension post and crown will readily accept the exceptional forces biting and chewing exert.
Osseointegration is exclusive to dental implants and implant-supported bridges and dentures. No other tooth replacement features this lifelike and bone-building bond with the jaw. However, the bonding process does take time, so patience definitely is essential to the dental implant treatment.
Benefits of Dental Implants
These state-of-the-art prosthetics feature many patient-friendly benefits. They include:

  • A fuller, stronger jaw bone and healthier gum tissue (these structures recede after tooth loss but are restored by implants)
  • Strong biting and chewing
  • Clear speech
  • Aesthetics which are natural-looking in color and shape (no one can tell that it's an implant)
  • Longevity (most dental implants last a lifetime according to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry)
  • A wide range of tooth replacement scenarios, including full and partial dentures and bridgework using multiple implant devices
  • Ease of care (twice a day brushing and daily flossing, along with semi-annual preventive care with Dr. Baek and his team)
