It improves chewing capabilities. Eat what you want with no fear of damage to your restored tooth.
It is durable. An implant could last decades or, in many cases, the rest of the patient’s life.
Implants stimulate the jawbone. No other tooth replacement provides the jawbone stimulation that came from the tooth root. This helps maintain healthy gum tissue, ideal jawbone density, and a healthy facial shape.
Once you decide to make the commitment to your oral health and receive a dental implant, you will need to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists—Dr. Pat Carroll, Dr. Deb Shoemaker, and Dr. An Hamman.
At this meeting, the dentist assesses your oral health to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants.
If you are a candidate for dental implants, we refer you to an oral surgeon in the Louisville area. The oral surgeon will insert the implant screw. As you heal from this procedure, the implant fuses to your jawbone during a period referred to as osseointegration, which may take about four to six months.
Once healing is complete and the implant is deemed stable enough, we fabricate a custom crown that attaches to the implant, completing the procedure.
We accept cash, major credit cards, and advance payment, as well as special financing options. Please see our website for more information regarding payment options.
Although the price of an implant is significant, consider it an investment in your oral health—a restoration that will last decades, if not the rest of your life.
