Restore Your Teeth & Enjoy Life More

No matter why you’re missing teeth, we can help. You shouldn’t have to go through life without all your pearly whites! Teeth implants serve as artificial tooth roots. After an oral surgeon has placed them in your jaw, implants can support one of several types of new replacement teeth:

  • For a single missing tooth, we can attach a strong and beautiful crown to the top of an implant. Your new crown will make biting and chewing easier. It will look so natural that no one will ever guess it’s a replacement tooth.
  • If you have several missing teeth in a row, then we can have an implant-supported bridge made for you. It will anchor to two or more implants and fill in the gap left by your missing teeth. It will stay firmly in place and won’t require any special care or maintenance.
  • We can also attach a set of dentures to your implants. Implant-retained dentures are a huge leap forward in comfort and stability over conventional dentures. Their snap-and-ball attachment system prevents them from moving around. For even more comfort, you may opt for implant-supported dentures that transfer the forces of biting and chewing directly to your jawbone, not your gums.

We make it as easy and comfortable as possible for you to get your teeth back. To do that, we administer anesthesia painlessly and offer oral conscious sedation to help you completely relax during any extractions needed to prepare for your implant placement. To us, your comfort takes top priority.

Dental implants in Lenexa can give you back a whole smile! Call us today at 913-251-9683 to schedule your implants consultation, or schedule online.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

When should I get dental implants?

If you are missing any number of teeth, you owe it to yourself to consider getting implants. They are designed to function as artificial roots for your replacement teeth. Implants make crowns, bridges, and dentures more secure. They prevent bone loss by stimulating your jaw, and they restore your biting power so you can eat anything you want.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants depends on how many implants you need. Your cost may be affected by where your implants will be located as well. In our view, you should look at implants as an investment in your long-term oral health. If you have concerns about the cost, know that we have a variety of payment options, including a 12-month no-interest payment plan, to help with the cost of your replacement teeth.

Can dental implants come loose?

They shouldn’t. When they are placed correctly and taken care of, implants can last the rest of your life. One of the advantages of implants is they can allow you to continue brushing and flossing like you did when you had all your teeth. Just as severe gum disease can lead to tooth loss, it also can affect your implant-supported replacement teeth as well.

Do dental implants hurt?

Our team will make sure that your implant procedure is as comfortable as possible. During the placement of your implants, we’ll make sure your mouth is completely numb. Dental sedation is also available if you’re uneasy about your procedure. After the implants are placed, you should have very little if any discomfort while your jaw heals.

Can dental implants be removed?

Technically, dental implants can be removed, although it is unlikely you would ever need to have that done. Once your implants have been placed in your jawbone, they completely bond with it and can last for decades, if not the rest of your life. Your replacement teeth that are anchored to your implants have an average life span of five to 10 years.
