Dental Implants

Permanent replacements that look and feel like your natural teeth

Top Atlanta Implant Dentist Robert Finkel

Dr. Finkel has been recognized as one of Atlanta’s Top Dentists.

Top Suwanee dentist Robert Finkel has been providing dental implants to patients in the Atlanta area for over two decades. The procedure is simple, and for those who are missing teeth, it can seem miraculous. A titanium tooth-form cylinder is placed in the jawbone in a simple and quick procedure. The titanium fuses to the bone, where it strengthens and stabilizes. It is then used as a support for an abutment (sub-structure) and crown, without involving unnecessary treatment on adjacent teeth.

If you have missing, extensively decayed or compromised teeth, a dental implant may be your best solution. After an examination, Dr. Finkel will be able to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. He will help you formulate a treatment plan designed to restore your mouth to full health, function and beauty.

Dr. Finkel has been recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Academy of General Dentistry -- a rare award that, in 2008, was only given to three dentists in the entire state of Georgia. Not surprisingly, he has also been recognized as one of Atlanta's Top Dentists. But the award that matters most to Dr. Finkel is the one that he has received from his patients. In a recent survey, they gave him a satisfaction rating of 100%.

Our Dental Implant procedure

Dr. Finkel will determine if you are a good candidate for a dental implant

Dr. Finkel will use digital x-rays, including a panoramic x-ray, to help determine if you are a good candidate for a dental implant

In your initial consultation for dental implants, Dr. Finkel will explain the procedure to you in full, and answer all of your questions. The next step will be to determine whether you are a good candidate for implants.

Dr. Finkel will ask for your full medical history. In addition to a full oral examination and x-rays, Dr. Finkel will photograph your mouth and jaw using our intraoral camera. He may send you to obtain a CAT scan to fully determine the depth of bone available in your jaw. The bone in your jaw will support the implant posts.

Once he has determined that implants will work for you, and you have decided that implants are the right choice, Dr. Finkel will work out a complete treatment plan for your implant surgery. It will be designed to get you the best possible results.

If you have teeth that are broken down beyond repair, he may painlessly extract them. When your mouth is ready, he will arrange to have an oral surgeon implant the necessary posts for your implants, and carefully ensure that the surgery heals fully.

Sometimes your replacement teeth can be placed in the same visit as the posts. If not, you will be able to have temporary teeth while you heal. Dr. Finkel will make sure that you are happy with the size, shape and function of your temporaries, then proceed to provide you with permanent teeth that you will absolutely love.

Smile with confidence!

Dr. Finkel has helped hundreds of patients reconstruct their smiles, but he is very aware that each case is unique. He will carefully design a treatment plan for you that is right for you and only you. With many options for treatment at his fingertips, he will make sure you get the beautiful, healthy smile that you desire.

Are you a candidate for Dental Implants?

Most adults can become candidates for dental implants.

Most adults can become candidates for dental implants.

The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant. Some people who have lost bone in their jaw can still get implants, but first the bone must be rebuilt using special bone-grafting procedures.

People who are currently wearing partial or full dentures can replace these with dental implants, or use implants to stabilize and secure the denture, making it much more comfortable. People who are not good candidates for dental implants include:

  • Young patients whose jawbones have not fully developed
  • Pregnant women
  • People with existing medical conditions (If you can have routine dental treatment, you can generally have an implant placed. While precautions are advisable for certain conditions, patients with such chronic diseases as high blood pressure and diabetes are usually successful candidates for dental implant treatment)
  • Patients who take certain medications such as steroids or drugs which suppress the immune system

Dr. Finkel can determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants, and explain all of your options to you. With his extensive training and experience, he has been able to help hundreds of people obtain a healthy and beautiful smile with dental implants.

The Advantages of Dental Implants

suwanee dental implants

While more costly, implants are often the most ideal treatment to replace and restore teeth. Dr. Finkel’s dental implants work and feel exactly like natural teeth. Dental implants are generally stronger and more durable than bridges and dentures and they offer a permanent solution to tooth loss.

Implants can also be used together with other dental procedures for greater effectiveness. For example, while a dental implant can be used to replace a single missing tooth, it can also be used to support a dental bridge or a set of upper or lower dentures. The use of implants to provide this kind of support will significantly improve your ability to bite down and chew normally.

Dental implants are often considered to be the most functional and durable solution to replace missing teeth.
