Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth. They will restore your smile, while providing you the ability to eat normally again. Dental implants can also be cleaned like normal teeth. There are three main parts to a dental implant:

- the root
- the abutment
- the crown

The root is placed into your jawbone and serves as the foundation of your implant. The abutment is a metal piece that is placed into the root. The crown then attaches to the abutment and serves as your tooth.

I'm missing multiple teeth. What are my options?

If you are missing multiple teeth, Precision Dental has permanent options that will allow you to smile comfortably and confidently again. We offer implant supported dentures if you are missing a full arch, or all of your teeth. This solution will give you a smile that is natural-looking and secure so you can eat, speak, and smile without worrying about your dentures moving around in your mouth. Call us today to set up a consultation in our Bowling Green office to determine whether implant supported dentures are right for you.

What Are the Different Types of Dental Implants?

At Precision Dental, we offer a variety of dental implant options to meet the needs of every patient:

  • Single-Tooth Implants: Single-tooth implants are meant to replace a single tooth (hence the name). The process involves implant placement surgery, a healing time of about 3-6 months, then the permanent attachment of your custom restoration.
  • Mini-Implants: Mini implants are a great option for patients who would like to replace a single missing tooth without the lengthy healing time of a traditional single-tooth implant. The implant itself is smaller, which means that treatment is less invasive. You can also restore your smile in one appointment with a mini implant.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: If you need to replace a full arch of missing teeth, implant-supported dentures are a stable, natural-looking option. Dr. Packard can use a minimal amount of implants and design a custom denture that will attach to these posts and create a beautifully restored smile.
How much do dental implants cost in bowling green?

Dental implants are an investment in your dental health. Since implants can last a lifetime with proper oral care, this option is a bit more expensive than less permanent options, like dentures, for missing teeth. However, dentures will need to be replaced every few years, making implants a smart investment and more cost-effective in the long run.

At Precision Dental, we offer resources for our patients to make sure that your dental care stays within your budget. We are committed to providing compassionate care, and part of our service is making sure that money never comes between our patients and their dental health.

Can Dental Implants Be Done in One Day?

Yes. If you are receiving a mini-implant, your treatment can be completed in just a single appointment. This is because mini implants are smaller than traditional implants, which means that they are not as invasive. After your mini implant is placed, Dr. Packard can attach a permanent restoration during the same visit. By the time you leave our office, you’ll have a fully-restored smile.

Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Since implants are a permanent option that are permanently placed in your gums, a good candidate for implants must have sufficient jaw bone and healthy gums to undergo the treatment. During your consultation in Bowling Green, Dr. Packard will assess your dental health to determine whether dental implants are the right option for you.

Do dental implants hurt?

Yes, you will experience some discomfort after receiving a dental implant. During the procedure, you shouldn't feel anything since you will be put under anesthesia. After the numbing wears off, you will be able to feel some discomfort and irritation where the implant was placed. However, many of our patients don't describe this feeling as pain. Similar to other major surgical procedures, everyone's healing process differs. If you are experiencing a high amount of discomfort, please contact us immediately.

Are Dental Implants Safe?

Yes! Dr. Packard has been performing successful implant treatments for years and you can always trust that your results will be beautiful. Implant treatments have a success rate above 95%, and with proper oral hygiene, your implant can last 30 years or longer. Implants essentially become a part of your natural smile and act as a replacement tooth root, so you can expect a stable, natural-looking smile once treatment is complete.
