What are dental implants?
In short, a dental implant consists of metal posts or frames that are inserted into your jawbone. This metal post acts as an artificial root and is placed beneath your gums. Once they are in place, your dentist will be able to fix the replacement teeth on them.
At Atlantic Oral Surgery, we effectively and safely implant a permanent surgical fixture that acts as a replacement for your missing tooth. This procedure is considered the most effective replacement for a natural tooth, without affecting your natural teeth, and is planned and executed according to each patient’s oral examination and surgeon’s recommendations.
How do dental implant procedures work?
When performing dental implant surgery, your oral surgeon will replace your tooth roots with artificial posts. This replaces any missing or damaged teeth with artificial teeth that function and look exactly like natural teeth. The biggest appeal to dental implants is the fact that they can offer an exceptional permanent alternative to dentures or bridgework. Dentures are renowned for feeling uncomfortable or not having that perfect fit. Dental Implants combats all those issues.
It’s important to note that no procedure comes with a ‘one size fits’ template, and dental implant surgery performed at Atlantic Oral Surgery highly depends on a variety of personal elements and varies from each patient. Some of the specific aspects that your oral surgeon will take into account when designing your custom treatment plan include the type of implant that will be used and the condition of your jawbone

What is the recovery time for Dental Implant Surgery?
Each patient will follow their own recovery timeline based on the specificities of their procedure, their personal treatment plan, and other personal elements that will be discussed with each patient prior to their surgery. However, the overall estimate, if there are no additional surgeries included in the initial timeline of your treatment plan, is expected to be anywhere from four weeks after your surgery.
However, the osseointegration time should also be considered when talking about the recovery process. This refers to the connection between the living bone and the surface of your implant, which can take anywhere from six to nine months to be fully recovered. Your Atlantic Oral Surgeon will provide you with your individual and tailored time frame that will include the least invasive procedure and aims to achieve optimal results with the least amount of inconvenience to the patient in the long term.

Dental Implant Cost in Charlotte NC
There is a common misconception that dental implant costs are unaffordable. Paired with that belief, comes another notion that affordable dental implants aren’t as good or as professional. At Atlantic oral surgery, we believe that perfect dental health shouldn’t be unaffordable. That’s why each dental surgery and treatment performed at Atlantic Oral Surgery is carefully and strategically developed, to include each patient’s needs. By following the expertise and recommendations of your doctor and the oral surgeon, the best steps forward will be discussed to ensure that it is financially sustainable and in each patient’s best interest.
