There is no need to settle on your smile. If you have missing or damaged teeth, dental implants can restore your smile for life.

Dental implants can take your smile from incomplete to attractive, permanently. At the Marietta, GA, office of Dr. Casey Hart, we can fit you with dental implants that improve the appearance, health, and functionality of your teeth.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are replacements for teeth that have been removed or require removal due to intensive damage or decay. The implant itself resembles a screw, which is secured into your jaw bone to mimic the root for an artificial tooth, attached on top. Dental implants are durable and look natural, making you more eager to smile and improving your ability to bite, chew, and brush.

Benefits of dental implants?

In addition to the aesthetic benefits of dental implants, they offer convenience, as they require no removal for cleaning and sleeping. Just like your natural teeth, they become a permanent part of your mouth. Dental implants can also improve your oral health. By filling the void from a missing tooth, dental implants prevent bacteria from growing and spreading to surrounding teeth and offer support to your jaw.

Dr. Hart will make sure your dental implants are inconspicuous by creating an artificial tooth that matches the size, shape, and tint of your other teeth, so your smile looks all-natural.

Are dental implants uncomfortable?

The dental implant procedure may cause some discomfort, as your dentist at our Marietta, GA, office will need to make an incision in your gums to accommodate your implant. However, you will be given an anesthetic during the procedure to help keep you more comfortable. Post-procedure, you may experience some soreness as your mouth heals. Using an over-the-counter pain reliever and sticking to soft foods should help, and all discomfort should go away in a few days. Once healed, you won't even notice your dental implant; it will feel just like another tooth.
