Your natural tooth is composed of a white, visible crown and a root that is well-hidden under the gum tissue. Traditional tooth replacement options like dentures only rebuild the crown of the tooth, which is good for aesthetics. However, without a functioning tooth root in place, the tooth has no support and the jawbone is no longer being stimulated, which can result in bone deterioration. Thankfully, the implants themselves are designed to essentially be the new root of the tooth, preserving your oral health and function while also providing a beautifully lifelike replacement.
Receiving dental implants is a multi-step process that will require several appointments here at our Conyers office.

Instead of referring you to a separate specialist, Dr. Seekand has the advanced training needed to personally perform this placement.

Your natural tissue will start to form around the biocompatible implant, creating a solid foundation. Once your mouth has fully healed, you’ll return to Seek & Smile Dentistry so that we can start planning your new, personalized restoration.
