Implant dentistry is becoming very common in dental offices right now, and part of the reason why it is becoming more common is because it's becoming so much more predictable. We use CT scans and guided surgeries, and those are all things that can help us guide us to the final result that we want. And so, being able to use the technology that we now have to help better serve the patient. And another reason people love implants is because they function a whole lot like a normal tooth. Basically the purpose of the implant is to serve as the root of the tooth, and then we place a crown on top of that implant so people can brush, floss, and function just like that were a normal tooth. So that's another really great thing about dental implants is they're not having to use a different type of hygiene technique to take care of them. It’s not something that comes in and out.
So it makes it really convenient for patients, and it makes it very predictable for our end as far as taking care of them clinically. So that's why I think a lot of times, dental implants are a great option for patients. Obviously it's not the only option, and that's one of the things we really stress here, is educating our patients from the very beginning on what all your options are, what the pros and cons are for each option, if your medical history plays into effect – sometimes that will play an effect as to what kind of treatment plan we want to give you. So we want to treat the whole person, we're not just treating their mouth. And so we consider all of those different things when we talk about what their long-term treatment plan is going to be, and dental implants is just one of those treatment plans that we offer to our patients.

Transform Your Mouth With Teeth Implants
Drs. Golibersuch, Higginbotham, and Miller offer you many teeth replacement options using implants. We’ll be happy to answer all your questions about implants or our other services so that you completely understand your dental treatment.
Dental implants are small posts, usually made from titanium, that function as replacement tooth roots. Our dentist will surgically place them into your jaw, where they will chemically fuse with your jawbone. New bone material will actually grow around your implants over the course of a few months. In some cases, we can even remove a damaged tooth and place a new implant – all at the same appointment!
After your jaw has healed, your teeth implants can support several types of replacement teeth:
- Implant Crowns – We can design and create your new crown right in our office using the CAD/CAM technology of the CEREC system.
- Implant Bridges – Your bridge will anchor to two or more implants to make biting, chewing, and smiling easier.
- Implant-Retained Dentures – Secure your dentures with snaps and balls for a more stable fit than you can get with traditional dentures.
- Implant-Supported Dentures – Enjoy our most comfortable type of dentures. They will attach to a bar that is secured to your implants.
We Offer Mini Implants, Too
If your jawbone has deteriorated, then mini dental implants may be a good option for you. Mini implants are similar to traditional implants except they are smaller and require less bone to bond with. Their size means they require a less invasive placement procedure and allow for faster healing.
In some cases, we can even place mini implants, then secure implant-retained dentures to them to create a same-day smile. You’ll leave our office with fully functioning new teeth!
If your jawbone is weak but you prefer to use full-sized implants for your restoration, we can perform a bone graft. This procedure will build up your jaw and prepare it to receive new implants.
With dental implants, Beaumont Family Dentistry offers teeth replacement options for anyone! Call 859-554-4049 for new patients, or call 859-368-8260 for existing patients today to schedule your consultation. We provide consultations regarding treatment for a minimal diagnostic fee.
