Dental Implants (Before and After)

Selecting Your Best Tooth Replacement Option

Dr. Clagett is a certified and experienced expert with tooth replacement in Elizabethtown, KY. He knows how important your smile and your dental health are. He will make sure that you get the best option for your smile.

In most situations, a dental implant is the best option, as it’s the most stable, longest lasting option for tooth replacement. In order to determine the best option for you, Dr. Clagett will perform a thorough examination. He will overview his findings with you. This will enable you to make an informed decision for the best option for your situation and dental health.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal that is inserted into your jawbone. Once the implant is in place, your dentist mounts a replacement tooth to the implant. The implant is the anchor that holds the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used for replacing a single tooth, multiple teeth or for stabilizing dentures. The procedure for a dental implant is typically gentle with minimal post-operative discomfort.

Advantages of Dental Implants

There are many reasons that people will choose to use dental implants in Elizabethtown, KY:

  • Dental implants don’t need adjacent teeth like a bridge
  • No teeth are ground down to hold replacement teeth
  • Dental implants offer a permanent solution, and you don’t have to worry about future bone loss in that area. This is important to the health of your other teeth.
  • All surrounding teeth are not impacted because they don’t need other teeth for support
  • They function, feel, and look like real teeth
  • They improve biting pressure
  • You care for them the same way you care for natural teeth
  • You get the smile you want
  • Implants can’t get cavities
  • Implants can last 20 years or more

I highly recommend them!

Dr. Clagett performed an implant procedure today and a root cleaning, also. While these procedures are surgical and time consuming, I never felt that he was rushing. He was very concerned about my comfort and kept me informed on each step he was doing. Dr. Clagett and his staff are very friendly, very helpful, and very concerned about their patients. I highly recommend them!

Office staff very personal and professional!

My current Periodontist had retired and I learned that I needed additional periodontal work and Dr. Clagett was recommended to me. I am currently undergoing several implants and gum treatment.  I am very comfortable with his procedures and feel that he is very knowledgeable and professional. Office staff very personal and professional!
