Dental Implants Smile Proudly With Realistic Teeth

Restore Your Bite With Dental Implants in Edgewood

Teeth do a lot, but the most important thing may be letting you eat the foods you love. Biting into fresh fruit is satisfying. Chewing steak or chicken lets you enjoy their flavors. If you’ve lost teeth, you want to smile again, but you also want your bite back. Dental implants in Edgewood, KY can give you both.

At our office, you can get implants to:

  • Keep your replacement teeth secure
  • Replace your teeth and restore the full function of your mouth
  • Give you a natural-looking smile that will make you look younger
  • Allow you to speak clearly without any worries your teeth will come out
  • Let you eat the foods you love without any pain or discomfort
  • Prevent the bone loss that occurs when you have traditional dentures

In many ways, implants let you be yourself again. To understand what we mean, schedule a visit with one of our doctors. Call Edgewood Dental Care at 859-474-7830.

Rebuild Your Quality of Life With a Dental Implant Procedure

Patients often get partial or full dentures hoping to bring back their smile. However, dentures get looser over time, and adhesives only provide a temporary fix. You can avoid those frustrations with implants. They are as close as you can get to real teeth. They have a success rate of about 98 percent, and with proper care, they can last the rest of your life.

When you visit our office for dental implants, we will:

  • Take digital X-rays and use CT technology to examine your mouth and jaw in three dimensions
  • Accurately diagnose your situation and determine the best location for each implant
  • Improve your jaw strength with a bone grafting procedure, if necessary
  • Perform a guided implant procedure that will safely place your implants into your jaw
  • Keep you completely relaxed throughout your procedure with the help of several safe sedation options

Once the healing process is complete and your implants have fused into your jawbone, we will work with you on your teeth restorations. Your options include:

  • Implant-Retained Dentures – We can secure your dentures with implants to prevent them from moving while you eat. You can take them off for cleaning and they will function as well as natural teeth.
  • Hybrid Dentures – These dentures are secured with implants, however they are not removable. This makes them an extremely stable restorative option!
  • Implant-Supported BridgeIf you have several missing teeth in a row, we can place a bridge that will be anchored by two or more implants.
  • Dental Crown With an Implant – If you have a missing tooth, we can attach your dental crown to an implant. It will restore your biting power and blend in with your smile.

We will work with you on selecting the right choice for your smile, lifestyle, and budget. You will benefit from Dr. McMahon’s extensive knowledge and training as a Diplomate in the International Dental Implant Association.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

Do dental implants hurt?

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 several forms of sedation to help you relax and eliminate any dental anxiety you may experience during your implant procedure.

Can dental implants come loose?

A dental implant requires a sufficient amount of healthy bone to fuse with, so we’ll make sure your bone is in good shape before we begin your treatment. After your implants are placed, they will fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration. Once your implants are fully fused, there is little chance they will come loose, although the replacement teeth anchored to them will need to be replaced periodically.

How long do dental implants last?

It’s very possible for implants to last your entire life. Most implants are made of medical-grade titanium, a highly biocompatible material used for many medical purposes because of its durability, resistance to corrosion, and ability to fuse to bone. With proper oral hygiene, implants should last for decades. Like any replacement teeth, the restorations attached to implants may need to be replaced at some point.

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 or bone grafts, 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. Financing options can make your care manageable.
