The first step in the dental implants process is a free consultation right here in our office here in Leawood, KS located conveniently near Kansas City to learn more about your unique needs and determine the best route for you. Dr. Gordon will explain the procedure in detail, answer any questions you have and create a customized treatment plan based on your needs. You will receive all the information you need to make a decision, including exact pricing for your new implants and restoration.
Once you make the decision to proceed with the dental implant procedure, we will schedule your pre-implant appointment. During this visit, we will get everything we need to complete your implant procedure, including models, x-rays, measurements, before-photos and scans. We will collect any data needed so we are ready to go once your implant procedure day arrives.
In one day, we can extract any teeth if needed and put your implants in place; this could be one or up to six if you are replacing a full arch. You will be on your way to your permanent new teeth and smile! Once your implant placement is done and your appointment is over, you will go home with implants and a temporary crown, denture or bridge that looks and functions naturally until your permanent restoration can be put in place.
After your dental implant procedure, your jaw bone will need time to heal and adhere to your new implants. For at least several weeks, most patients need to restrict their diet to soft foods that will not interrupt the healing process. As part of your procedure, we will ask you to come in to our Leawood office for several post-operative visits to monitor your healing process. These checkups are all included in the fee for your implants and will not cost you anything extra.
Today is the day you have been waiting for! Once your implants have completely healed and are stable, we can install your new crown, denture or bridge. We partner with the distinguished ROE Dental Laboratory for your restoration, to ensure natural-looking and high-quality new teeth. You will then leave our office with your beautiful, permanent smile.
