At Huthwaite & Huthwaite, D.M.D., PC, we believe patients should not have to suffer from a missing tooth. If you have lost one or more teeth, please come see our dentist about receiving dental implants which are an excellent choice for patients who need tooth replacement. We can provide you with in-depth information about the process of placing dental implants and how they can benefit your smile.

The process of placing a dental implant starts with surgically placing the implant post in your jawbone by creating a channel through the gums to the bone. This creates the strong bond your implant needs. The healing process that follows could take a few months so that the bone fuses with the implant post. As a result, you may need to eat softer foods during this stage of the implant process. Once the jawbone has fused with the implant, our dentist will then place a customized dental restoration over the post. Typically, this will be a dental crown.

The unique benefit of dental implants is that they are designed to function, look, and feel like natural teeth. This is a significant treatment, but it offers many positive outcomes for your smile and your life.

If you have further questions about dental implants, call 770-536-8868 to schedule a visit with Dr. Lance W. Huthwaite.
