Dr. Gregg Codelli

Dr. Gregg Codelli was born in Pittsburgh, PA, yet shortly thereafter his family moved to Germany, then Switzerland and finally Belgium before arriving in Atlanta for his last year of high school. He attended Emory University in Atlanta, GA. After earning his DDS degree at the University of Tennessee in Memphis he completed his specialty training in Periodontics at the University of Tennessee in Memphis. Dr. Codelli moved back to Atlanta in 1988 to enter into private practice. He has completed advanced training in both surgical and restorative dental implant treatment at the Medical College of Georgia/American Academy of Implant Dentistry implant Maxi–Course (1992) as well as the prestigious Misch International Implant Institute (1995).

As a dedicated husband and father of two, Dr. Codelli has many interests outside of periodontics and dental implantology. He is an accomplished classical pianist and organist (playing at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, Italy, just recently); he continues to be actively involved with music at his church directing the choir. His wife Natalie is also a gifted musician. They both enjoy snow skiing and travel – the latter especially to keep up their language proficiencies (French and German for Dr. Codelli and Italian for Natalie).

Parts Of A Dental Implant

Modern dental implants consist of three separate parts; a titanium insert, abutment and the dental crown. The titanium insert is a tiny screw that’s installed in your gums and fused to your jaw bone. Titanium is an earth metal that naturally bonds with your mouth’s bones, especially the bones of the jaw. Titanium helps kick start a process called osseointegration, a progression that helps to fuse the screw and bone together. This also helps support the bone and keep the structure of the jaw intact.

The abutment is a tiny piece that fits snuggly over the titanium screw. This piece rests just above the gum line and creates an axis point for the crown to sit.

The final part of the dental implant trifecta is the faux tooth, otherwise known as the crown. The crown is most commonly made from porcelain or another type of ceramic material. The reason for using a substance of this nature is its resistance to stains and its close resemblance of a human tooth.

All-On-4® Implant Technique

The All-on-4 technique is specifically designed to use only four implants that are available for immediate function.  All-on-4 implants do not typically require bone grafting, so they are an ideal solution for patients with areas of low bone density or volume.

Before the procedure begins, you will be comfortably numbed so that you will feel no pain or discomfort during the procedure.  Four dental implants are then placed according to where the bone volume is best.  Once the implants have been placed, the new or existing denture is used as the framework for a temporary set of teeth that will be attached that day.

Once the bone has fully integrated with the implant (3-4 months), the temporary teeth are removed and the new, final set of teeth are made and anchored into place permanently.
