Restore Your Bad or Missing Teeth in A One Day

Dental Implants Offer Gold Standard Value

Whether you have missing teeth due to trauma, decay or gum disease, you’re likely struggling with several issues. Missing teeth can cause a hit to your self-esteem and make you feel too embarrassed to go out, talk, laugh or even smile. In addition, adjacent teeth can shift into the empty spaces, affecting your natural bite alignment, causing chewing difficulties, and increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. An estimated 25% of the underlying bone is lost during the first year after losing a tooth, and as this process progresses, even undesirable facial changes can occur! The great news is that no matter how many teeth you’re missing, dental implants in Macon, GA offer “gold standard” benefits due to their unmatched versatility, durability and natural-looking beauty. At North Macon Dental Associates, our dentists Dr. Lee Stockslager and Dr. John Kuo have extensive experience placing dental implants, and they utilize the latest technology to give you a new smile and better quality of life.

Dental Implant Basics

Dental implants are made up of a titanium post, an abutment and a restoration. The post functions as a natural tooth root to anchor and stabilize the restoration. Once it fuses with your bone, the implant post stimulates healthy new bone growth, providing a stable foundation for replacement teeth. This also protects your facial structure from the characteristic sagging that often occurs with multiple tooth loss. Although dental implants provide incredible benefits, placing them requires precision skills and advanced surgical technology. With over 40 years of experience, Dr. Stockslager has placed more than 1,000 dental implants and has achieved excellent outcomes for his patients using All-on-6 and All-on-X full mouth dental implant protocols. If you’re struggling with the many repercussions of missing teeth in Macon, GA, our team has the skills and knowledge to help you reestablish a fully functional and attractive smile.

Dental Implants Offer Customized Versatility

Dental implants are exceptionally versatile because they can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. If you’re missing all of your teeth, several implants can be strategically placed in your jaw. An entire upper, lower or full arch prosthesis can be attached to the implant abutments. Implant supported dentures can be designed to be fixed or removable. Full mouth dental implants using the All-on-6 or All-on-X protocol are cost-effective, minimally invasive, and efficient. This approach relies on six or more strategically placed dental implants to enable a full-arch prosthesis to be securely and permanently attached to them.

Why Dental Implant Treatment Experience Matters

Your dental implant treatment at North Macon Dental Associates is personalized to your specific oral health needs and smile goals.

Getting Dental Implants at Our Practice

At North Macon Dental Associates, our goal is to make the dental implant process as streamlined and pain-free as possible! The first step is a consultation to discuss your dental and medical history and your smile goals. We use cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) to analyze your bone structure, nerve tissue and sinus cavities. The CBCT produces a single detailed 3D scan from hundreds of images, taken in less than a minute. If we determine you’re a good candidate for dental implants, we’ll create a customized treatment plan, discuss the steps involved, schedule your surgery, and provide an estimated cost. In some cases, you may need a tooth extracted or bone grafts, both of which we offer. With our roster of services, we can give you the convenience of fully restoring your smile under one roof!

We use computer-guided technology and implants from top companies to ensure dental implant placement is precise and long-lasting. In addition to numbing your implant sites with a local anesthetic, you can choose from several sedation options. Any discomfort after dental implant surgery is typically well managed with over-the-counter medications, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Using our on-site milling machines, in most cases we can create a temporary crown or prosthesis on the same day of your surgery! This allows normal oral function and protects your implant sites during the healing process, which typically takes three to four months. We may schedule one routine follow-up appointment prior to fitting you with your custom-made permanent restoration.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants provide numerous advantages over other tooth replacement options. Bridges require modification and crowns on adjacent supporting teeth, whereas dental implants only require adequate bone. While traditional dentures often slip, require messy adhesives and regular cleanings, and allow for bone loss, implants are permanently fixed, stable enough to restore over 99% of natural biting and chewing power, and actually prevent bone loss! For these reasons, implants are the preferred tooth replacement solution for most patients. While virtually all patients who visit our practice are candidates for dental implants, we have the skills and technology to help you become an ideal candidate. We also see patients with failing implants and offer treatment, restorations and replacements to restore your smile to top condition.
