Why So Many Patients Choose Dental Implants
Stop Bone Recession
Following the loss of a tooth, patients will experience some level of bone loss. Each tooth root acts as a natural stimulator that promotes bone regeneration. This is one reason why individuals who have suffered extensive loss of teeth sometimes appear to have cheeks that are sunken-in. This can leave individuals looking much older than their actual age. Placing implants can prevent bone resorption and improve the overall health of your jaws.
The presence of gaps between teeth can also lead to tooth drifting, which can further malign the appearance and function of your teeth. Misaligned natural teeth are more prone to decay and other dental problems. By replacing a missing tooth with an implant-supported restoration, even a single dental crown, you can prevent tooth misalignment and subsequent jaw issues.
Stabilize Your Dentures
There are restorative treatments available that can restore oral function, but only titanium implant posts deliver natural oral function and superior stability. The titanium posts allow restorations to be anchored directly to your jawbone for superior support and oral health. A denture is prone to slipping and wobbling, and a traditional bridge will need to be replaced multiple times over the course of a lifetime. Meanwhile, many of our patients find that dental implants are a more stable foundation for their dentures.
Improve the Look & Feel of Your Smile
Patients who are seeking a permanent solution to tooth loss can have one or more dental implants surgically placed. This restorative option allows patients at our Kansas City practice to enjoy a full range of foods, and many of our patients report that dental implants help their restorations look and feel more like their natural teeth. With proper care, the titanium posts can last for a lifetime.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
Sufficient Bone Tissue
To ensure that your dental implant treatment is successful, candidates will need to have sufficient jawbone density. If you have suffered bone loss, your dentist may recommend bone graft surgery to ensure that you can safely receive an implant. Bone graft surgery can add several months to your implant treatment timeline.
Healthy HabitsAnother leading risk factor for implant failure is tobacco use. If you regularly use tobacco, you may be required to stop using those products for a number of months before, during, and after your implant placement.
Dental Implants Are an Investment in Your Well-Being
Many patients are worried about the cost of dental implants. However, dental implants are a permanent investment in your oral health and self-confidence. Implants can also restore your appearance and your ability to chew, so they are well worth the price of treatment.
Because they are considered an elective treatment, dental implants are not covered by most dental insurances. To help you cover out-of-pocket costs, our team works with CareCredit®. CareCredit is a trusted third-party lender that offers low-interest rates and flexible loan terms. With CareCredit, you can afford implants on virtually any budget.
The Treatment Process What to Expect
We use advanced technology, including a 3-D CT scanner, and the most durable, beautiful materials available.

Aftercare & Recovery
Dental implants are designed to last for a lifetime, but patients should take steps to maintain their oral health.
Implant failure can still occur if unaddressed gum disease and other dental problems compromise the health of the bone tissue that supports your implant. Maintaining optimal oral health requires good oral hygiene habits and twice-a-year visits to our office for cleanings and exams.
