QUESTIONS? FOR IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE PLEASE CALL ONE OF OUR FRIENDLY DENTAL CARE COORDINATORS AT (706) 395-0004!


Dental implants are modern, efficient and the most sensible alternate to natural teeth which may have been lost or damaged. Implant Supported Crowns look and feel natural, give you a perfect smile and better dental health.

We offer Dental Implants for patients who have damaged a tooth or lost multiple teeth. These are artificial tooth roots (surgical grade titanium) that are implanted into the jaw to support the replacement tooth. Afterwards, we will take a mold of your teeth and send it to a laboratory, where qualified technicians use the impression to build a custom made crown specifically designed for your implant.

Implant Supported Dentures & Bridges

Dentures are a way to replace a number of missing teeth so that functionally, you can chew your food and have a nice smile. However, since dentures sit in the mouth on top of the gums there are no tooth roots to anchor and stimulate bone growth and strengthen the jawbone. This leads to bone loss, receding gums, changes in the shape and profile of one’s face as well as periodontal disease.

In addition to the physical changes they cause in your face, dentures often need to be resized, they can cause sores in the mouth from friction, they slip and can impair your ability to speak clearly.

A healthier alternative to traditional dentures is the Implant Supported Denture. This is a combination of a number of implants surgically implanted into the jawbone (good for bone stimulation and growth) and a denture which can be removed and cleaned. This option prevents bone deterioration that can lead to periodontal disease. Patients who go this route also experience an easier time talking and chewing. In addition to these benefits, since there is no bone loss in the jaw there is no slippage and the denture does not need to be resized.

Dental Bridges are often a solution for a row of missing teeth. The bridge is connected to two natural teeth on either side of the gab which are shaved down and replaced with crowns. The crowns serve as anchors to the bridge.

Like dentures, a dental bridge sits on top of the gum line. Since there is no tooth root stimulating the jaw bone, the bone eventually disintegrates. Once this process has begun it often leads to a situation where the bridge slips and no longer fits properly because of the degradation of the bone and the receding of the gum line. This slippage can create a gap allowing plaque and bacteria into the jaw leading to a host of other health issues like periodontal disease.

Like the implant supported dentures discussed above, an Implant Supported Bridge is also anchored by two dental implants. This preserves the integrity of the two natural teeth that now do not have to be shaved down and fit with dental crowns. The implants prevent bone loss, which prevents slippage and offers a stable chewing foundation.
