Are you in need of dental restoration following dental trauma or tooth decay? If so, we are pleased to provide a variety of options at Bluegrass Periodontics. Even after losing a tooth, you can enjoy a healthy and beautiful smile due to modern advancements in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. In particular, you can restore empty spaces in your smile with natural-looking dental implants, which are very popular among patients. We have offered a review of the dental implant placement process and how it can improve your smile after tooth loss.
Dental implants have an excellent reputation of providing long-term dental restoration for patients who have lost one or more teeth. It’s important to address tooth loss as soon as possible prevent the jawbone from suffering bone loss as a result of losing the support of the tooth root. A dental implant is very similar to a natural tooth root, providing the support and strength your jawbone needs for a healthy smile.
Titanium is the most common material used for dental implants since its biologically compatible nature enables the implant to fuse with the jawbone quickly to ensure your new tooth is both strong and stable to last up to a lifetime. You may find that eating softer foods during this time is comfortable for your mouth. Once your mouth is fully restored, you can receive a custom-made dental crown from our periodontists to make the implant look like a complete and natural tooth.
We invite you to contact Bluegrass Periodontics at 859-252-7726 today to schedule a visit with Drs. Elliot D. Neuman or Douglas M. Neuman about receiving dental implants in Lexington, Kentucky, and discuss your tooth replacement needs.
