There’s a common saying about not knowing what you have until it’s gone. That’s really true when it comes to teeth. It’s also why restorative dentistry like dental implants, dental crowns, and dental bridges are an important part of what we do.
Too many people take it for granted that they will have their teeth. Consider these statistics from the Centers for Disease Control:
▪︎ Around 93 percent of Americans will have at least one cavity in their lives
▪︎ More than 27 percent of adults have an untreated cavity
▪︎ More than half of American will lose at least one tooth in their lives
▪︎ Roughly 1 in 5 adults 65 and older will lose at least one row of teeth
Our dentists want our patients in Lexington, KY, and the surrounding areas to keep as many of their teeth as they can for as long as possible. That’s also why we offer restorative dentistry at all three of our locations.

Dental Implants: A Giant Step Forward In Restorative Dentistry
If you read through the biographies of our doctors, you will see that implant dentistry is a recurring theme. This is because our dentists understand how valuable dental implants can be in restoring what our patients lose when they have missing teeth.
Dental implants were developed as a result of an accidental discovery by a Swedish physician who was doing research on blood circulation in rabbits. Today, dental implants allow us to provide the closest thing we have to full teeth replacements.
By themselves, dental implants only replace the roots of your teeth. When used in conjunction with replacements for the crowns of your teeth, you regain more than just the appearance of your smile.
Dental implants serve as a foundation that makes dentures, dental bridges, and dental crowns stronger and more secure.
Call or contact the nearest Beaumont Family Dentistry today to schedule a consultation about dental implants. If you are missing, one, three, or all your teeth, you owe it to yourself to find out if dental implants could help you.
