Dental implants are the most durable tooth replacement option and the only method that prevents bone loss because they replace your natural tooth roots. This keeps you from losing more teeth and restores your facial structure, making you look years younger!Dr. McMahon on Dental Implants
Conventional Dental Implants
Whether implants are used to replace one tooth or several missing teeth, our dental implant process is easily explained.
In a private consultation, one of our Edgewood, KY dentists will take digital X-rays and use our cone beam CT technology to get 3D images of your jawbone and tooth structure. This way, he can not only determine you are a suitable candidate for implants but also precisely plan your procedure. Then, we will:
- Help you fully relax and prevent any discomfort with sedation dentistry
- Carefully place a dental implant under your gums, where it will fuse with your jawbone and create a secure foundation for your restoration
- Cover the dental implant site for protection during the healing process
- Attach a temporary dental crown, bridge, or set of dentures
- Place your permanent custom-made CEREC dental crown or other restoration
Regardless of the type of dental implants you receive, the general steps of the procedure will be similar.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini implants are about half the size of regular implants and may be used if you are not a good candidate for conventional implants. Because of their size, they have many additional benefits:
- Less invasive surgery
- Can usually be placed in one visit
- Faster healing time
- Less expensive than regular implants
Say goodbye to messy adhesives! Using two to four dental implants, we can secure your lower dentures so that you can eat and speak normally without worrying about them falling out anymore.
Dr. Kevin McMahon has achieved Diplomate status in the International Dental Implant Association, received his IV sedation certification with advanced airway and emergency management, achieved Invisalign Preferred Provider status, and has been LANAP certified to treat gum disease.
