What Dental Implants Need to Be Successful

Dental Implant Roswell, GA

When it comes to replacing a missing tooth, dental implants are the top choice. Unlike a dental bridge or denture, dental implants are anchored into your jawbone just like real teeth. Though the upfront procedure is more time-consuming and costly than other restorative dental procedures, implants provide a permanent, easy-to-maintain solution towards a healthy and confident smile.

One of the leading advantages of dental implants is their exemplary success rate. However, success doesn’t come automatically. Besides electing a skilled implant dentist, there are several qualifications that need to be met on behalf of the patient if you want your dental implant to mimic the stability and comfort of a real tooth.

How Dental Implants Work

Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone. Over time, the titanium implant post will fuse to the surrounding bone (osseointegration) and form an artificial tooth root for the implant restoration that is attached on top. While the implant restoration (crown, bridge or denture) may get all the attention, it is really the underlying implant that makes this tooth replacement method so remarkable.

Do You Have What It Takes?

The success of a dental implant relies on optimal healing and a strong foundation, which means the following qualifications should be met for patients to reap the most success:

  • Good overall health
  • Free of gum disease
  • Adequate jawbone density and height
  • Sufficient gum height (no gum recession)
  • No smoking or using other tobacco products
  • Well-managed underlying medical conditions (such as diabetes or osteoporosis)

The above factors are likely to influence either your ability to heal after implant surgery or the foundational support for the implant to be placed. When healing is compromised or there is not enough bone and tissue to surround and support the implant, patients can experience implant instability and/or failure. The good news is that bone grafting and other treatments can be performed to qualify patients for dental implants – so don’t count yourself out!

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
