Dental Implants: Best Treatment Option for Missing Teeth

Dental implants are the best treatment option for missing teeth and more patients are taking advantage of this expanding technology.  Dental implants are able to replace one or several missing teeth.  They are gently placed into your jawbone by an oral and facial surgeon and are embedded there just like your natural teeth.  Rather than having a removable denture that rests on your gums or having to compromise your adjacent teeth as anchors for fixed bridges, dental implants are secure, predictable, and the best long-term replacement for missing teeth.

Our patients are extremely pleased with their decision to pursue dental implants.  It is quite remarkable how a very quick and easy procedure can improve self-confidence, allow individuals to finally begin eating the healthy and delicious foods that they once enjoyed, improve speech, and provide a more youthful appearance.  Furthermore, implants eliminate the daily frustrations faced by patients with missing teeth.

At East Georgia Center for Oral and Facial Surgery, Drs. Suketu Patel, Rod Uribe, and Mark Clayton are board certified specialists who have broad expertise in dental implant placement.   We work with some of the finest general dentists in our area to provide you with the results that you deserve.   We are well-known and trusted by our patients and colleagues for our ability to deliver successful outcomes for the most challenging and difficult scenarios.
