Learn more about Dr. Benk & Atlanta Dental Center
At the Atlanta Dental Center, award-winning dentist Joel Benk has assembled a team of caring, experienced professionals and state-of-the-art technology, to provide you with the best possible tooth restoration facility. Using the latest advances in dental procedures and equipment, Dr. Benk will replace your missing or hopelessly damaged teeth with Dental Implants that are safe, durable and look and feel like your natural teeth.
Conventional procedures require patients to travel to multiple locations to see multiple specialists. This would normally mean more appointments and overall cost of treatment. To save you time and money, Dr. Benk uses his 33 years of experience and training to give you dental implants in one office. Dr. Benk also uses state-of-the-art technology to make the procedure precise, efficient and comfortable.
From your very first consultation to the final placement of your implant tooth crown, everything will be done here in our office. We won’t send you somewhere else to get X-rays, have a 3D Scan or get your surgery done. From our high-tech 3D CAT Scans to the latest in Guided Implant Surgery, we will do everything you need right here at the Atlanta Dental Center. Even your implant crowns are prepared in our in-house, high-tech lab, making it easy for Dr. Benk to adjust your crown so that it fits perfectly and matches your smile exactly.
Using a cone beam CT scanner, Dr. Benk will take 3D digital X-rays of your teeth and jaw to better plan the implant surgery. The cone beam is a special X-ray machine that takes low-dosage X-rays, and captures a 360 degree view of the entire lower portion of the patient's head.
With this software, Dr. Benk can see the exact location of all the structures in the jaw and mouth area. This technology eliminates the need for more invasive exploratory methods of cutting open the jawbone for implant placement. The result is a relatively simple insertion of the implant itself usually with no bleeding, swelling or post-treatment discomfort.
With the 3D cone beam system for planning the implant procedure, Dr. Benk can determine the exact location and angle of the implant, making the best use of available jawbone while avoiding any nerves. He will create a surgical guide designed to be placed over the gums, which in turn guides the implant into the proper position in the jaw.
Dr. Benk is able to help just about anyone with getting dental implants. They are the best solution for permanently replacing missing teeth. This is because of their similarity to the way natural teeth function, and how they do not negatively impact the other teeth in your mouth in comparison to less conservative methods, such as dental bridges.
In the past, people with too little jawbone were not considered eligible for receiving dental implants. However, with the advances in dental technology, such as the introduction of 3D X-rays, Dr. Benk is able to evaluate the jawbone more thoroughly. In addition, new methods of restoration, including bone grafting techniques, also allow Dr. Benk to augment people with low bone levels in their jaw, making them suitable cases for dental implants.
Absolutely not. Dr. Benk can actually combine dental implants with other methods of restoration. In fact, using dental implants to support dentures or dental bridges has become the modern method of effective replacement of missing teeth.
With modern technology, Dr. Benk is able to extract your teeth (as needed) in a quick and painless procedure. He can then place your new dental implants and chosen method of restoration all in the same day!

"When I moved here 8 years ago, I didn’t have a dentist. I went online and asked for referrals. Dr. Benk came up. So I came in here, had a cleaning and so forth.
"I had had some extensive dental work in California, and Dr. Benk ended up repairing it. At the time, he told me that I should look at dental implants as a long term solution for that area in my mouth.
"After thinking about it, I decided to move ahead with the surgery. I was not nervous or fearful prior to the surgery. I had decided that this was the best solution for me and I felt very comfortable and trusted Dr. Benk and the staff.
"I thought I was going to be a lot more swollen. I thought there would be a lot more pain. I thought I would be taking pain pills left and right – but the pain was minimal. I was shocked, really at how little the discomfort was.
"This is a really good place to come to. A lot of people are nervous about coming to the dentist, but they make you feel comfortable here. Everyone is nice and professional, too."
