Modern dentistry offers several teeth replacement options, but none comes close to a dental implant. With a success rate of over 95%, implant-based restorations are stable, functional, and esthetically appealing, just like your natural teeth. Once a dental implant settles in place, it doesn’t look or feel like a replacement.
Treating tooth loss early averts numerous health complications, including bone loss and diminished oral function. Dr. Abel Aguilar of Manchester Dental in Manchester, Georgia, helps you enjoy all the benefits of a complete smile by installing high-quality dental implants.
Most teeth replacements replace your crown. However, dental implants replace your entire tooth, from the root to the crown.
A dental implant is a titanium screw surgically inserted in your jawbone to sit in the place where your tooth once existed. Above the implant post, we attach an abutment that connects the implant to a dental prosthetic, such as a crown, bridge, or denture.
A dental implant looks very much like the tooth you just lost. And that’s not all. A dental implant feels natural when talking, eating, and cleaning your teeth.
The first step towards replacing your lost teeth with an implant is booking a consultation with Dr. Aguilar. We use digital X-rays and 3D scans to determine the amount of jawbone present, your gums, and the space available to place an implant.

Dental implants have a high success rate, but the procedure can fail if the implant detaches from the bone. This failure can happen due to two reasons. Poor oral hygiene may infect your implant, causing peri-implantitis that destroys the gums and bone around the implant. Furthermore, excessive teeth grinding can dislodge or wear out your implant. We recommend optimal oral hygiene, routine dental appointments, and custom mouth guards (for tooth grinders) to reduce the implant failure rate.
Dental implants are the “gold standard” for replacing teeth because they offer numerous cosmetic and functional benefits. Some include:
