Dental Implants in Lithia Springs - Mini & Full Implant Placement
Implant dentistry is the easiest way to get natural-looking and feeling prosthetics to replace missing teeth in your smile. Traditional restorations, such as bridges and dentures, can’t compare to the durability and convenience of long-lasting new teeth with dental implants. If you have missing teeth and are looking for the best in restorative dentistry, our office is proud to provide dental implants in Lithia Springs, GA.
Why Do I Need Dental Implants?
Implants are meant to replace lost teeth, such as those that needed to be extracted following extensive dental decay or an accident. But many patients seek dental implants as permanent teeth replacements when bridges and dentures have failed and contributed to further tooth damage and decay.
Dental implants may also be necessary for teeth that have previously been treated with root canals, and root canal therapy has failed to eliminate the infection and save the tooth. While failed root canals can be frustrating, implants provide a beneficial solution for severely damaged, extracted, or previously treated teeth. Dental implants provide the following advantages over other restorations:
Prevents Damage to Healthy Teeth – Applying dental bridges involves altering existing, healthy teeth. This opens the door for potential damage, as prepared teeth are more vulnerable to acid and bacteria that may leak in under a bridge or crown. Placing an implant involves inserting a titanium post into the jaw bone. Healthy teeth are not compromised or negatively affected.
Minimize Re-Treatment and Future Restorations – Because implants are whole prosthetic teeth – roots and crown – they cannot be affected by the bacteria that causes decay on organic dental enamel or tooth roots. Dental implant posts merge with jawbone to become a lasting part of your smile. If you ever experience damage to your implant, only the top crown would need to be replaced, rather than the entire implant. On the other hand, bridges and dentures often need to be repaired and replaced completely in the course of their lives.
Improvements in Health and Function – By acting like a real tooth root, implants support healthy jaw bone density. Because they are surgically placed into bone, implants provide a strong, long-lasting base for prosthetic teeth, ensuring that you can bite and chew with renewed strength.
Our Lithia Springs implant dentist, Dr. Claude Daniel, helps patients find durable solutions for teeth that have been affected by failed root canals, faulty fixed bridges, or accident and injury.
Single and Multiple Tooth Replacement with 3D Guided Implant Surgery
Dr. Daniel offers multiple safe and effective ways to replace any number of missing teeth in your smile. Our implant treatment options include implant-supported bridges, single implants, and implant-supported dentures. Dental implant posts act as permanent and stable bases for crowns to replace one tooth, bridges to replace groups of missing teeth, or even a whole arch of replacement teeth with implant-supported dentures. For patient with total tooth loss, implants can permanently secure your dentures and positively impact your daily life.
While many dentists refer surgical placement of implants out to specialist’s office, we can expertly place your implants in-house.

When necessary, we can even extract damaged teeth and place same-day implant for convenience and to protect your oral health.
