Dr. Tracy Dillon is an Oral and maxillofacial surgeon serving the Atlanta communities. His expertise ranges from facial reconstruction surgery to corrective jaw surgery and wisdom tooth removal. He diagnoses and treat facial pain and injuries as well as TMJ disorders. He also performs a full range of dental implant and bone grafting procedures.
Dental implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts that protrude through the gums are then attached to the implant. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.
