Dental Crowns and Implants Woodstock ga

crowns-implants.jpgReplace Missing Teeth with a Long-lasting Solution

Teeth fall out or must be extracted for several reasons – disease, decay, damage from a traumatic event - but what’s important is that they are replaced when they do. Replacing missing teeth prevents even more serious dental problems from occurring, and also restores the attractive appearance of a uniform, even smile. We use dental crowns and implants at our Woodstock, GA office to replace missing teeth or correct damaged teeth, and restore normal appearance and function to the mouth. Please contact Towne Lake Family Dentistry, serving Marietta and Roswell, to schedule a dental crowns consultation with Dr. Ray H. Morgan, Jr., or one of his associates, Dr. Dennis L. Radcliffe and Dr. Adam J. Barefoot.

About Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are prosthetics that look like natural teeth. Resembling little caps, they slip over the surface of teeth that are broken, cracked, or otherwise damaged. Crowns provide structural support to teeth that have damage too significant for a filling, inlay, or onlay.

Dental crowns are often used in conjunction with implants; the implant acts as the artificial tooth root, while the crown tops the implant post to provide a natural-looking appearance and proper function. After the implant post has been placed in the jawbone and healed properly, the crown screws onto the top of the post. Dental crowns may be used after root canal therapy, to support a dental bridge, or as part of a full mouth reconstruction.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns closely mimic the appearance and function of natural teeth. They mask visible structural flaws as well as bolster teeth that are damaged. Your crowns are customized to blend in with your natural teeth, so they are nearly undetectable. Our practice uses only high-quality materials and reputable dental laboratories to ensure that your restoration is beautiful, functional, and long-lasting. With the proper care and maintenance, crowns can last for many years.

About Dental Implants

Acting as artificial tooth roots, dental implants are titanium posts, placed in the jawbone to support prosthetics such as crowns or bridges. The dental implant placement and restoration process is threefold; first, the posts are surgically placed in the jawbone. Then, there is a healing period of several months to allow the post to integrate with the jawbone. Once it has healed properly, an artificial tooth (e.g., a bridge or crown, depending on the case) is securely screwed onto the top of the post. The artificial tooth is customized to blend in with your surrounding natural teeth, so no one will be able to detect the implant and crown or bridge. Dental implants can also be used to anchor a set of dentures, making them more stable and less likely to slip and slide around the mouth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

The oral health implications of dental implants are significant. Dental implants are safely secured in the mouth, providing a stable base on which to chew. The chewing motion helps stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone deterioration (which can cause oral health problems). Filling gaps left by missing teeth with dental implants also prevents decay and disease from festering in the open space, as well as the remaining teeth from shifting in the mouth. Dental implants are sturdy, comfortable, and extremely long-lasting. They are considered the most permanent tooth replacement option available.

If you have a gap in your teeth because a tooth fell out or had to be extracted, consider dental crowns or implants to fill the space.
