Get Your Strong Bite & Beautiful Smile Back With Teeth Implants

Losing a tooth isn’t the end of the world. After all, you can easily replace it with restorations like dental crowns and bridges. But without a tooth root underneath a standalone restoration, there is an underlying oral health problem. When your jawbone is no longer attached to the root, it won’t receive the stimulation it needs to remain strong and healthy enough to support the foundational structure of your mouth.

That’s why modern implants have been such a game-changer in restorative dentistry. Typically made of titanium, dental implants are placed inside the jaw to work like artificial tooth roots. They naturally fuse to the bone as they heal. Once that happens, you’re ready to have your new teeth secured to them for maximum strength, security, and longevity.

Here’s why you’ll want to trust your implant placement and restoration to us:

  • Rather than sending you to another specialist, we can place and restore your dental implant here in our office, for a more familiar, comfortable, and convenient experience.
  • We have the training and experience to offer several implant options, from replacing a single tooth with a crown/implant combination to full-mouth restorations using just a few strategically placed implants.
  • Our 3-D CT scanner and computer-guided technology allow us to plan and perform your procedures in the most precise, efficient way possible. You can feel confident about your care and a successful outcome.
  • You have options in sedation if you feel nervous about dental treatment. We offer laughing gas and oral conscious sedation in pill form. Both can effectively calm your nerves and put you in a state of relaxation for your dental implant procedure.

Choose From Several Dental Implant Options

You won’t have any trouble finding just the right implant solution to suit your needs and goals. We can go over all of your options and help you decide which is best for your situation. Options include:

  • Single Implant With a Crown – A beautiful new dental crown attached to an implant may be all it takes to complete your smile and restore your oral function. With our advanced technology, we’re even able to make crowns right here in our office.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge – A bridge anchored to dental implants fills the empty spaces in your mouth without having to alter any of your surrounding healthy teeth.
  • Implant Dentures – Dentures that are secured to implants will always outperform conventional dentures. You’ll get more out of your new teeth without worrying about potential embarrassing slips.
  • Full-Mouth Reconstruction – This is a comprehensive treatment plan for reconstructing your entire mouth. It could include any number of restorative procedures to give you back a full set of lifelike, functional teeth.

You deserve the best replacement teeth around, and that’s what you’ll get with Elizabethtown dental implants. Call us today at either of our locations at 270-491-3768 (Lakewood) or 270-200-6225 (Lincoln Trail) for a consultation, or schedule online.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that we place in your jaw to act as artificial teeth roots. They are an ideal way to replace missing teeth because the implant fuses with your jawbone to form a base for new teeth. Implants also help keep your jawbone healthy by stimulating the growth of new bone.

Are dental implants painful?

Our patients usually experience only mild discomfort after getting their new implants. Your dentist will use local anesthesia to ensure your mouth is numb and you don’t feel any pain. Plus, we offer sedation to help you relax and eliminate any dental anxiety you may experience.

Can dental implants be removed?

Technically, dental implants can be removed, although it is unlikely you would ever need to have that done. Once your implants have been placed in your jawbone, they completely bond with it. They can last for decades, if not the rest of your life. Your replacement teeth that are anchored to your implants have an average life span of five to 10 years.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants varies, depending mainly on how many implants you receive. In some cases, you may also need another procedure, like a tooth extraction, to prepare for implants. We’ll discuss cost with you during the planning stage of your implants procedure so you know exactly what to expect.
