Dental Implant Placement and Restoration in Louisville, KY
For those who have lost one or more of their teeth, the dental implant treatment process offers a longer-lasting and more broadly restorative solution than traditional prosthetics. Stony Brook Dental Care provides dental implants in Jeffersontown, Hurstbourne, Douglas Hills, and all nearby Louisville neighborhoods. Schedule an appointment today to learn more about this restorative and cosmetic method of care.
Dental Implant Placement
The reason that dental implants are highly effective in restoring missing teeth are the implant posts. These titanium rods merge with the jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots for a crown, bridge, or denture. Not only does this give the prosthetic more stability for better bite force, but it also prevents the shrinking of the jaw that occurs over time when teeth are lost.
The first step in receiving dental implants is to undergo the dental implant placement surgery, wherein the implant posts are added to the jaw.
Our dentist, Dr. Michael Barnett, is trained and experienced in performing implant placement, helping patients gain the new smile they desire. In circumstances where specialized care is required, he can refer you to an oral surgeon for this stage of treatment.
Dental Implant Restoration
After you have undergone dental implant placement, the next step of care is to have restorations attached to the implant posts. These prosthetics are very similar to their traditional counterparts—porcelain crowns, porcelain bridges, and acrylic dentures—but are built to be supported by implants for a more secure bite.
As providers of cosmetic dentistry in Louisville, Stony Brook Dental Care also restores implants following placement. We partner with a dental laboratory in creating each of these restorations to better ensure their resilience and appearance. Once the fabrication process is complete, you will have new, permanent teeth that look as natural as your original smile.
Whether you need to replace a single tooth or all of them, we help make your smile whole once again.
Thorough Patient Care
To Dr. Barnett, ensuring the comfort of his patients during the dental implant treatment process is just as important as the treatment itself. After implant placement, our dentist checks in to monitor your healing, making sure you are recovering well. This allows him to provide you with the highest level of care he can.
