IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19
Lifelike Appearance and Function
with the Highest Quality
Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth (View Example). They are inserted into your jawbone and are made from a surgical grade inert material. Inert means you won't be setting off any alarms at the airport. After the implant has been placed, a natural lifelike porcelain tooth crown is attached. In some cases, the implant needs to fuse with the bone for several months before it is permanently crowned; in other cases, you can have new (but temporary) teeth the same day your implants are placed. The treatment time varies based on bone quality and quantity. The best thing about an implant is it's the next best thing to your natural tooth! Floss it and brush it just like your own. It not only looks and functions like a natural tooth, but it helps support the bone in your jaw. Just like weight bearing exercise promotes healthy bones; teeth in function help promote healthy jawbone.
How many teeth can be replaced with dental implants?
You can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or all your teeth with implants (View Examples). You don't even need one implant for every missing tooth.

I continue to drive about 40 minutes to the Kennesaw location for my routine care (despite having moved) and went to the Woodstock location yesterday to have two dental implants placed. I was not surprised that the Woodstock team is just as polite, care, timely and honest as the Kennesaw office. Thank you, Dr. McRee, for accomplishing my implants with minimal discomfort.
Aubrey is my dental hygienist and she is always great. Easy to talk to and very pleasant. I have no complaints of any of my experiences with 1st Choice Dental Care-Woodstock! They have done crown and even implants for me.
I can't say enough good things about Dr. McRee and the staff at the Woodstock office. I am in the process of getting an implant (terrified). Dr. McRee and his team have been wonderful during the entire process. They have treated me with kid gloves, explaining everything, even letting me see what goes on behind the scenes. I got a follow-up phone call last night just to make sure I was doing okay. Way to go team! I'd recommend them over and over again.
The Woodstock location and Dr. McRee were so great and my implant procedure involved minimal discomfort. Thank you all so much!
