Restore Beauty & Function to Your Smile at Sneed Dental Arts
Age. Decay. Accidents. Do you shy away from sharing your smile in public because of one or more of these common causes for missing teeth? Dr. Kathryn Sneed wants you to know — you are not alone.

Patients of all ages are susceptible to tooth loss. Some people have broken or decayed teeth that come loose. Others struggle with ill-fitting dentures.

Are Dental Implants Right For You?
Achieving a full, healthy smile you’re proud to share with the rest of the world starts with a simple consultation with Dr. Sneed. She will make sure you’re comfortable, before taking the time to understand your needs and concerns. If a dental implant or implants are a good fit for you, we will work with you to create a comprehensive treatment plan that suits your schedule and fits your budget.
- CBCT Prexion Scanner – Using this state-of-the-art technology, Dr. Sneed will:
- Evaluate your jaw bone structure for density and ability to hold the titanium implant post
- Use the scan results to create virtual post placement into a 3-D image of your jawbone
- See how the implant will fit and take precise measurements
What Are The Next Steps?
Dr. Sneed will place your titanium implant post or posts that effectively replace your tooth’s root. Then a support, or abutment, is placed on top of the post. Next, Dr. Sneed will give the gums some time to heal. During that time, she will artfully craft a beautiful porcelain crown to permanently bond to the post. The end result is a naturally-appealing, attractive new tooth that blends seamlessly into your completely revived smile.

What Can Dental Implants Do For You?
Whether you’re missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or you are constantly contending with your dentures — Dr. Sneed can help. Thanks to her dedication to education and the latest technology, she is able to offer a variety of implant solutions that can effectively and efficiently make your smile whole again.
Single-tooth implants make a big difference in restoring form and function to your smile by replacing the tooth root, while protecting your neighboring teeth from additional stress that can lead to their deterioration.
Sometimes referred to as an implant-retained bridge, this dental implant option allows for the replacement of more than one missing tooth. Instead of relying on multiple, singular implants this procedure combines less work with greater affordability.
When your dentures are stable and secured, you will feel more self-assured. Implant posts can be placed in either one or both of the upper and lower jaws — depending on if you’re in need of a full or partial set of dentures that snap on to the implant posts. There’s no more discomfort, just renewed certainty knowing your smile is strong and natural-looking.
