Smiling African American Model Standing OutdoorsWhen Kentucky residents begin to consider dental implants for their loose or missing teeth, they’re often left wondering who the ideal oral health care professional would be for this type of procedure. Many dental professionals can place dental implants, but the truth is, you’re going to want to find someone who has years of experience performing this procedure.

A periodontist like Dr. Clagett of Derby City Dental Specialists is highly-skilled at dental implant placement. He is a board-certified periodontal specialist and a leader in regional and national periodontal organizations. The support and compassion that he provides his patients is genuine and breeds trust among his patients.

If you’re considering dental implants, be sure to talk to periodontist Dr. Clagett about your options.

Dr. Clagett’s Approach to Dental Implants As a Periodontist

Having the right credentials is a must when it comes to choosing a provider for your dental implant placement. A periodontist like Dr. Clagett will be board-certified and have the extra training required to know all the ins and outs of a successful dental implants procedure.

But more than that, as a periodontist, Dr. Clagett is truly concerned with the level of care he provides for each of his Kentucky patients. His goal is to provide the recommended treatment and the most supportive experience possible. When you visit with him for your initial consultation, he will talk to you about your concerns, perform a full examination, take any needed images, and explain his findings and your treatment options in a way you’re able to fully understand.

As a Highly Trained Periodontist, Dr. Clagett Uses Advanced Technology for Dental Implants

Because Dr. Clagett wants to provide his Kentucky patients with the optimal treatment options, he uses guided 3D imaging in every dental implants procedure. To ensure accurate placement of your implants, Dr. Clagett will use these scans to practice your specific procedure in a computer simulation. The scans and computer simulation help him refine his accuracy to one-tenth of a millimeter and one-tenth of a degree.

This accuracy offers Kentucky men and women with several benefits, including:

A less invasive treatment

This allows for faster healing and more comfort during your recovery.

Natural-looking Appearance

Your dental implant crown will be in better alignment with the rest of your teeth.

More Durable Results

Your implants will be placed on a stable platform of bone.

When needed, Dr. Clagett may choose to use the X-Guide technology. This system provides GPS-like navigation for periodontists during dental implant placement, meaning Dr. Clagett has unprecedented vision into the features of your teeth, bone, and mouth as he places your dental implants.

At Derby City Dental Specialists in Kentucky, Dr. Clagett doesn’t lecture or blame his patients about the condition of their teeth. Instead, he focuses on providing his patients with the information they need so they can make the ideal decision for their care.

This patient trust and his consistent care and concern as a periodontist are what draws so many to his practice. His friendly and professional attitude is reflected in every aspect of his periodontal practice.
