Dental implants are a great option for restoring your smile because implants are designed to look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, can last a lifetime. Gordon Dental of Leawood offers implants to our patients looking for a non-removable replacement for one or more teeth. For more information about the benefits of implant dentistry, and to schedule your implant consultation, please call or visit us soon.
Dental implants are considered the gold standard in tooth replacements and are permanent posts that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth. Implants are the best solution in most cases because it most closely mimics the look and function of real teeth and can be cared for as such. Implant surgery itself is less invasive and traumatic than many believe, and Dr. Gordon encourages anyone interested to schedule a complimentary consultation.
If you have more than one missing tooth, multiple tooth implants are a good option for patients with healthy teeth and gums. Talk to our dentists and learn if you qualify for multiple dental implants.
Dr. Gordon uses his professional capabilities and experience to diagnose your oral health condition during a dental exam using visual, mechanical, and radiographic techniques to analyze the condition of your teeth. Our implant dentist will work with you to create a customized treatment plan. He will make sure to keep you well-informed throughout your entire treatment so that you will always know what to expect. Using an advanced approach and a combination of cosmetic dentistry and restorative techniques, Dr. Gordon will have you smiling again in no time! The day of surgery, your dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, will be surgically placed in the jawbone.
This replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your restoration is stable. You will be sent home with a provisional, so you will not go without a missing tooth, and so your implant can heal with the bone. Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, if you have had negative experiences at the dentist in the past, or if you simply feel nervous about your treatment, sedation dentistry can help you feel more at ease. Sedation dentistry is also a good choice for patients who have difficulty getting numb or who have an extremely sensitive gag reflex. Dr. Gordon and our highly trained team can administer IV sedation to help you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process.
