    (prREACH) Athens, GA cosmetic dentist, Dr. Robert A. Pate, recently introduced dental implant technology to offer local patients a better alternative than dentures and partial dentures for missing teeth. With dental implants, patients can enjoy the same functionality of natural teeth permanently, with much less hassle than traditional dentures.

    It is estimated that about 50 percent of Americans who wear dentures or partial dentures have oral appliances that don’t fit right, are uncomfortable, or inhibit proper chewing and diet. Additionally, dentures require cumbersome adhesive strips and pastes that add more hassle to their daily lives. With dental implants, patients are provided with a restored smile that is even better than before they experienced tooth loss.

    “Dental implant technology has done amazing things for improving the lifestyle and self-confidence of our patients who struggle with tooth loss,” said Dr. Robert A. Pate, dental implants dentist in Athens, GA. “We’re excited to offer these implants to our local patients and for them to experience the benefit they bring to their overall life.”

    The process to complete dental implants takes several months, but is designed to last a lifetime. First, Dr. Pate makes an incision in the gum of the patient and implants a small titanium screw into the jaw bone. The implant is given 3-6 months to heal, during which time the jaw bone fuses with the implant, creating an extremely sturdy base, similar to the natural tooth root. Once healed, Dr. Pate places a customized porcelain crown on the implant that has been designed along with the patient to be the shape, size, and shade they desire.

    Once the procedure is complete, patients can enjoy a completely unrestricted diet and can clean their new implants just as they would to natural teeth. Dental implants are especially beneficial for older patients who risk severe bone resorption with denture use because the jaw bone has nothing to support.

    As well as dental implants, Dr. Pate also offers his patients other cosmetic and restorative procedures. He is a certified sedation dentist in Athens, GA for patients desiring a more stress-free visit, and also offers emergency dental care outside of regular business hours. Dr. Pate has also received additional training in the treatment of jaw and facial pain, and is a qualified TMJ dentist in Athens, GA.

    Dr. Pate has been practicing dentistry for nearly 35 years. For more information about Dr. Pate and the dental implant technology he offers at his Athens, GA office, please visit www.AdvancedAthensDentist.com and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcQxGpisIPU.
