Gentle Art of Dentistry: Carol A. Cunningham, DDS
Dr. Cunningham is an outstanding dentist. She has excellent technical skills and runs an office with friendly and compassionate support personnel. My husband and I were referred to her by a long term Decatur resident who has knowledge of the best places for different needs. We were not disappointed. She is thorough and does excellent general dentistry. Her cosmetic dentistry skills are outstanding. I broke my front teeth in a bicycle accident in the 1970’s and went to various dentists in other areas over the years. I had the teeth replaced four times, but never was completely satisfied. Dr. Cunningham explained all of the options prior to work and then spent a lot of time making these teeth natural looking and just right. I am finally happy with my smile. Go to this office and you will be happy with the work.

I had the pleasure of having Dr. K and Stephanie and they were AMAZING! I have anxiety and they were so kind and gentle and reassured me. I had to have a few fillings done and it was the best dentist experience I've ever had. They also have great personalities <3

Dr. Artime is truly the gentlest, kindest dentist I've ever encountered. Everyone in his practice is highly professional. I HATE going to the dentist, but I certainly don't mind seeing Dr. Artime!

Tips & Advices
This depends on the prosthetic.
  • Dental implants, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns typically last between 10-15 years.
  • Resin-bonded bridges typically last between seven  and 10 years. Tooth-supported fixed bridges generally wear out faster than this.
  • Removable partial dentures typically last around 15 years.
  • Complete dentures typically last between five and six years.
The entire process for adding dental implants could take as long as eight months. There are three phases:
  • Phase 1: Grafting. This may take between three and six  months.
  • Phase 2: Artificial root placement. This may take one to two  hours to complete and will take between three and six  months to heal.
  • Phase 3: Crown placement. This is usually done over the course of two visits, two weeks apart.
One dental implant typically costs $1,000-$3,000. However, the abutment (a connector added onto the top of a dental implant) and crown can add $500-$3,000. Multiple dental implants may cost $3,000-$30,000. A full set of implant dentures may cost as much as $90,000, though the average is around $34,000.
A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a natural tooth's root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. These posts allow dentists to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in the correct position.
Maxillofacial prosthesis is a subspecialty of prosthodontics. A maxillofacial prosthesis is meant to rehabilitate patients who have defects or disabilities due to trauma, disease, or those that a patient is has from birth. The prosthesis is designed to replace parts of the bone or tissue that are missing, or to help restore functions of the mouth, such as swallowing, chewing, or speaking. Other prostheses are created to protect the face during radiation therapy. Dentists that work with maxillofacial prostheses often collaborate closely with ear, nose, and throat doctors.
