Patient’s Review

Here Is What Our Patients Say About Their Experience With Us:

 

Barbara Wilensky: Great as usual!

Brenda Tasker: Always a pleasant visit.

Erin S: I am a 43 year old, real-estate agent. My looks are very important to me. I had some “orthodontic work” back in my teen years which involved the removal of four back teeth. As I grew older, I noticed my teeth began to incline inward which eventually resulted in unattractively thin lips and deep wrinkles around my mouth. My teeth were getting noticeably shorter and more easily stained. My lips and wrinkles bothered me so much, I considered undergoing plastic surgery to have fuller lips and to get rid of those wrinkles. Luckily, I met Dr Muecke before I went for that surgery. I had Invisalign treatment for 10 weeks which put my teeth back in the right places and beautiful veneers to replace lost tooth structure. By doing this I got my lips and my face back. Long term results, No plastic surgery!

Sharon Moore: Very nice office and super staff. I was worried about my teen daughter. She had some terrible dental experiences elsewhere a few years ago. From that experience she developed a severe dental phobia and would not go even to clean her teeth. A few months ago she was in a lot of pain and I took her to see Dr. Muecke. He and his assistant Kandi did a great job managing her anxiety and fear of dentists. I was shocked when on the way home my daughter said: “ It was actually fun, Mom! I’ve learn so much about my teeth…”…great place! Would definitely recommend this practice.

Rod Allison: Outstanding! I drive from Nashville for this great service!

Teresa W:  The best! I’ve always been terrified of visiting the Dentist. Thanks to Dr. Muecke and his wonderful staff, this is no longer the case :). Everyone in the office is super friendly and attentive. Dr. Muecke is the most gentle dentist I’ve ever had. He is very informative and his staff is very supportive. They vent over four options on how to fix my teeth and explained pros and cons of each option.  At the end of my consultation I was able to make my own decision comfortably, knew exactly what to expect and the cost. Thank you Dr. Muecke, Kandi, Lana & Fran! Love my visits with no surprises. 

Philip R:  Dr. Muecke’s work is exceptional! The level of care this practice offers is absolutely wonderful. The staff is kind and makes you feel welcome.

Carolyn Wynens: First-rate Dental Care Professional, advanced dental care I’ve counted on for many years.

Elizabeth N: My family and I have been going here since 1991. Dr Muecke always have the best staff and over the years, I have gotten to know personally most of them. You can imagine, in 20+ years we have been through a lot. The doctors and staff are always receptive to my needs and questions. They always make you feel very special. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

Loureen: Always great service and exceptional dental care. No waiting time at all. Doctor Muecke is a very good, experienced dentist and his staff is super welcoming and supportive. I am so glad I came here several years ago. They are the best in Atlanta. Period.

Eleanor Ridley: Everything one wants for an outstanding dentist, assistant and office.

Amanda K: Changed my life! I came to see Dr. Muecke because I felt like my previous dentist did not know what to do with me. I had constant headaches and jaw pains, not to mention, my teeth looked horrible. My father was an incredible man whom I love deeply but, unfortunately, I inherited his bad teeth. Over the years, I had significant amount of dental work and it seemed like my teeth could not “work together as a set” any longer. A good friend recommended Dr. Muecke. to me The best decision I’ve ever made! His clinical expertise and his diagnostic process is so thorough and unique. After 3 easy, pain-free visits I am now is a new, happy and attractive person. I feel great! Only regret, I did not meet him 30 years ago.

Brenda Tasker: They always take good care of me.

Gabriele S: Beautiful office. Great experience!

T G : Excellent care in a comfortable atmosphere!

Brandon C: The staff and office are great and I love that everyone makes you feel welcome the minute you walk in the door.

 

 

Dental Implants vs Bridges

Dental Implants or Bridges?

When considering dental implant options amidst other options like bridges and dentures, it is important to consider the point that dental implants last much longer than the other options.

A dental bridge, the creation of a tooth supported by anchors to real teeth on each side, requires grinding down adjacent teeth to make the bridge. Bridges cause increased tooth destruction and only last ten to fifteen years before requiring a replacement bridge. In contrast, implants can last a lifetime.

Dental implants have been perfected for over forty-five years, and consist of titanium, a similar material to what is used in orthopedic knee and hip replacements. With advances in implant techniques over the last ten years, implants have emerged as the ideal treatment option.

If a tooth is lost, the sooner an implant is installed, the better. Over time, bone loss at a missing tooth site can occur and losing too much bone can require a graft. Dental implant surgery takes about one hour. After an implant is placed, it heals for a few months, allowing time for the bone to fuse to the implant. Once fused, Dr. Field takes an impression of the mouth and uses it to fabricate the crown for the implant.

Patients sometimes have the wrong idea of what to expect after dental implant surgery, says Dr. Field. If you’ve lost a tooth due to extraction, it’s going to hurt much less than that. “I’ve had patients say it’s easier and less painful than having a crown done,” he says. Dental implant surgery has a success rate of anywhere from 96 to 98 percent.

Rare side effects and complications can include improper fusion of the implant to the jaw bone. If that occurs, the implant is removed, the bone heals, and the patient can try again.

Implant patients experience less alterations to life after an implant surgery, compared to a bridge or a denture. Implants can be brushed and flossed like a real tooth, unlike a bridge, where food particles can get wedged underneath the appliance and may require removal by a dentist. Dentures usually require regular removal and cleansing by the patient.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.42.17 AMEndosteal (in the bone): This is he most commonly used type of implant. The various types include screws, cylinders or blades surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.

 

 

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.49.38 AMSubperiosteal (on the bone): These are placed on top of the jaw with the metal framework’s posts protruding through the gum to hold the prosthesis. These types of implants are used for patients who are unable to wear conventional dentures and who have minimal bone height.
