Modern tooth replacement meets gentle care … Implants for a lifetime of healthy, confident smiles
As our name suggests, Gentle Dentistry of Newnan PC prioritizes unhurried, warm, inviting, and non-judgmental dental care. However, Dr. Ria C. Sahara has also built the practice on a foundation of cutting-edge techniques and technologies. These investments in training and equipment all support our ability to provide painless treatment and a pleasant experience at our office and with our team, which serves our neighbors throughout western and central Georgia.
The implant process represents one of the most sought-after modern dental treatments. Crowns, bridges, and other restorations supported by implants are designed like natural and healthy teeth—many amazing advantages flow from this unique design.
The process and benefits
Older forms of tooth replacement, such as conventional dental bridges and partial dentures, replace the parts of the teeth that are visible in the smile. Implant-supported teeth also replace parts of the tooth that are not visible but essential to the natural tooth structure. In fact, the implant itself is a small piece of biocompatible material, which is shaped and positioned in the jawbone to function like a tooth root. Since the material is biocompatible, it naturally fuses or grows into the surrounding bone. So, the implant becomes part of the jaw and can, in turn, stabilize the replacement tooth.
Our patients appreciate implant-supported teeth because:
- Their natural design supports the most natural appearance (no fake or plastic-looking teeth here!)
- Due to replicating the structure of natural teeth, chewing and other functions are efficient and comfortable.
- These teeth provide the utmost stability; they are, after all, integrated with the bone in the jaw.
- They protect against devastating loss of bone or stop the progression of this damaging process.
Their natural appearance, feel, and function is sustained as long as you care properly and consistently for your new teeth.
As true gentle partners in our patients’ health, we work closely with you and your family to ensure the long, healthy life of your implants. We can advise on good brushing and flossing techniques to use at home, and we’ll continue to see you at least once every six months for routine exams and professional cleanings at our office in Newnan, GA. Dr. Sahara and our team welcome your questions at (470) 686-6667.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
