Are you missing a tooth due to injury, disease, or an extraction? Our team at Beaumont Family Dentistry can help. We offer a few different types of tooth replacement options, including dental implant services. We place and restore dental implants so that you can have a beautiful, fully functioning smile once more.
Strong, Beautiful, and Realistic Replacement Teeth
Dental implants are an aesthetically pleasing, reliable way to replace missing teeth. Let’s talk about how implants work and their benefits.
Implants are small prosthetic tooth roots that are inserted into your jawbone. Implants are typically made out of titanium and are allowed to fuse with your jawbone. This creates a secure foundation for the replacement tooth. After the implant placement has healed, an abutment post is screwed onto the implant. Your replacement tooth is then bonded to the abutment. This three-part system allows the implant to be a strong, permanent part of your mouth.
The crown, or replacement tooth, that is bonded to the abutment is custom designed for your mouth. We use beautiful porcelain to replicate your natural teeth in the most realistic way possible. If you are concerned that someone might be able to tell that your teeth are not natural, don’t worry – with modern techniques and the latest technology, your new teeth will blend right in with your natural smile. Other advantages of dental implants include:
If you have lost a tooth due to injury, disease, or removal for any reason, dental implants may be the solution you have been looking for. We understand that it may be difficult to eat the food you love while you are missing a tooth! We also understand that it’s hard to feel good about your smile! Dental implants in Lexington, KY can solve both of these problems.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are implants designed to be placed more quickly and with less pain than traditional implants. Their ease of insertion is due to their smaller size. Mini implants are less invasive and can be used for patients who otherwise may not have adequate bone structure for traditional implants. We often use mini implants to secure dentures. Mini implants require less healing time than traditional implants and can sometimes even be loaded immediately after placement.
Tired of your dentures slipping around or falling out? We offer implant-secured dentures that will eliminate some of the typical problems people have with dentures. To do this, we place a series of implants in your gums to create a foundation for your dentures. Your dentures are then secured onto the implants using either a bar mechanation or ball attachments, depending on your needs.

Immediate Implant Placement After an Extraction
Are you going to need to have a tooth removed? Have you considered your tooth replacement options? Our team is sometimes able to place a dental implant immediate after an extraction. For you, that means only one office visit and just one surgery. This saves both you and our office time and stress. If you have been told you need to have a tooth removed and are considering dental implants as a replacement option, ask your doctor if immediate placement will work for you.
We also offer bone grafting at Beaumont Family Dentistry. In some cases, a patient may not have enough jawbone in a certain area in order to place an implant. Our bone grafting procedure can solve that problem. We can use the latest technology to build up enough bone in the area in order to place your implant.
