is a strong advocate of incorporating dental implants and
current esthetic concepts into his treatment planning. This
enables his patients to enjoy the benefits of beautiful fixed
dental restorations that might not otherwise be possible with
In the past, one of the most difficult challenges in dentistry
has been to provide patients who have suffered periodontal
disease and partial tooth loss with natural looking fixed
type restorations. That has all changes now due to the ease
and use of dental implants.
By incorporating dental implants in our treatment
we can give our patients back beautiful teeth that are fixed
in the mouth and look and feel like natural teeth that will
give them back the beauty and confidence they have wanted for
We are able to do this better and faster than ever before while
keeping the patient comfortable through the entire process.

(Guided implant placement)
The latest in implant
restorative dentistry is the merging of several technologies
that result in improved patient comfort, decreased treatment
time, and increased predictability of the outcome.
By combining CT Scan imaging of the facial structures along
with CAD CAM technology with Implant technology, it is now possible
for a patient to go to sleep with no teeth in the dental office
and wake up with a full set of teeth in one visit.
CT Scanning along with the new technique of Guided Implant Placement,
we are able to place implants using a minimal invasive procedure
where it is not necessary to cut the gums to expose the bone
to place the implants. This results in minimal post operative
discomfort and healing for the patient.
CAD CAM technology, we are able to prefabricate either a temporary
or final prosthesis that can also be inserted during the initial
procedure or shortly after which we refer to as immediate loading
of the prosthesis.
concept involves using the latest computer software that lets
us combine a CT Scan of a patient along with a CT Scan of the
final prosthetic design we work up with the patient and then
merging the two together to then use CAD CAM to premake the
surgical guide for the implant placement and also premake a
temporary or final prosthesis that duplicates our design. This
is all done prior to the placement of the implants. We are then
able to complete all of the surgical and prosthetic procedures
in one visit.
the past, the first surgical procedure involved cutting the
gums and reflecting it away from the bone to determine where
the ideal placement would be. The gums were then sewed back
up over the implants and it was necessary to wait anywhere from
twelve months until the bone adequately healed into the implant.
It was then necessary to cut open the gums again to expose the
implant. This was referred to as the second surgical phase of
exposing the implant. After this, the restorative phase would
begin which could take anywhere from two to twelve months depending
on the complexity of the restorations being fabricated.
we are able to place the implants
and expose them in one procedure. We also have the option of
restoring the implants much faster by using the technique called
these procedures are providing patients with restorative options
that are more comfortable, faster, and more predictable than
/ bridge & veneers: for beautiful smile
Many times patients have had dental work done a little at a
time over the course of their life. As a result we frequently
see teeth with different colors and shapes that result in a
less than desirable smile or look. Quite frequently we also
see some of the dental restorations failing and nearby teeth
in need of restorations.
By looking at the big picture
all of the teeth
that contribute to a
patients smile and look,
we can give the patient back their original beautiful youthfulsmile
that they once had or would like. We do this by evaluating all
involved with a
patients smile, then create a diagnostic model of the patient’s
teeth and make the appropriate changes on the model with wax to
simulate the final result and goal. We then choose the appropriate
materials to make these changes. By using the latest porcelain
technologies along with our old world artisans we are able
to provide our patients with the most beautiful life like teeth
Dr. Padgett now offers an affordable fast 'Value Denture'.
In response to seeing an increased demand for a lower cost treatment
option with a full denture we have developed a package with
our laboratory that uses less costly materials without compromising
quality along with fabricating
the denture with less appointments as opposed to our other custom
esthetic denture which uses imported materials and takes more
appointments to fabricate.
ever option you choose, you benefit from Dr. Padgett's knowledge,
skill, expertise and experience resulting in a good fitting

makeover & Wrinkle remover: A
smile makeover also known as a smile rejuvenation is easily
done today and can change your total appearance in a very short
time. Due to Wear over time along with periodontal disease and
or having piecemeal dentistry performed a little at a time,
your smile and facial esthetics can severely suffer to the point
that you feel self conscious about smiling and cover your mouth
when you smile.
By improving the periodontal structures and reshaping teeth
and replacing old dental restorations and correctly shaping
and positioning teeth which provide support for the lips and
cheeks we can restore your smile to that beautiful youthful
look that you never thought possible.
The process starts with a consultation with the doctor so that
the patient can express their concerns and desires. This enables
the doctor and patient to decide together what options can be
used and the results that can be achieved to give the patient
the look they desire.
of the options we consider today are tooth reshaping to even
out the smile and create a more symmetrical look. We may replace
old crowns where the metal underneath has been exposed due to
the change in gum tissue with new type full porcelain crowns
where there is no metal underneath. We also may include porcelain
veneers as an option to change a contour or color of some teeth
to obtain the desired result. We also look at the gum tissue
and determine if any improvement in gum tissue is necessary
to obtain that balanced symmetrical youthful appearance. All
this is done today painlessly and in a short amount of time.
final contribution is yours, just your right look and statement.
The end result being your highly customized dental esthetics
that provide you with the esthetics and function and comfort
that you desire.
times we will take impressions of the patients teeth and make
a set of study models. We then perform out changes on the models
in wax and then meet again to evaluate the models and discuss
the resulting changes to determine if our goals are met.
we agree on the course of treatment, this then becomes out blueprint
for our course of action. We then have a goal to work towards
and the actual work begins.
Then by combining our procedures and efforts done in the office,
along with the unique cooperation of our skilled laboratory
technicians, we are able to create your new beautiful look.
