A dental implant is a small, titanium root replacement. Dental implants (sometimes called “screw-in teeth”) are used to permanently replace single teeth, multiple teeth, or to anchor dentures when a patient has a missing tooth, a cracked tooth, or a broken tooth. Our team has extensive experience with dental implants in Bowling Green and at our other southern Kentucky locations. Dental implants restore your natural smile and give you confidence. They will never move, slip, or slide like dentures or partials, and you won’t have to worry about ever getting a cavity. They permanently fuse to your jaw through a process called “osseointegration”, and will prevent further bone loss. Implants are often the best way to replace missing teeth and will help prevent shifting and wear of your natural teeth. We can also use sedation dentistry to make the experience much more comfortable.
