- Q: Do you offer dental implants?
- Q: Will you take my dental insurance?
- Q: What age do you start seeing patients?
- Q: Do you offer dental implants? A:
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that an oral surgeon can place in your jaw. While we don’t place implants here in our office, we can refer you to a trusted specialist who can. Afterward, we offer a variety of dental implant restorations to replace your missing teeth. You can get a new crown, bridge, or dentures attached to your implants that will make eating easier and give you confidence to show others a full smile. Dental implants will also help protect the strength and integrity of your jawbone, helping you avoid bone loss and potential changes in the shape of your face.
- Q: Will you take my dental insurance? A:
Our office accepts and works with most dental insurance companies. The doctors are specifically contracted with Delta Premier, Cigna PPO, and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City. However, our office will submit charges for all services to your specific insurance company on your behalf. While dental insurance is a great convenience that can make it easier to get beneficial smile care, you still have the primary responsibility for making sure that your services are paid for.
- Q: What age do you start seeing patients? A:
We recommend that you bring your kids to see our dentist at age 3. Your little one will receive a “happy visit” that will get them acquainted with us and with receiving dental care. We’ll give them a tour of our office, introducing them to our staff and showing them some of our tools. Then, if they’re up for it, we’ll take a quick look in their mouth to check for any obvious problems. We may also give you and them both some tips on proper brushing and good oral hygiene.Hopefully, we’ve answered your Lenexa dental questions.
