Dr. Blake Lawlor understands how losing a tooth can impact your life. Whether it has been knocked out or lost to decay, a missing tooth can damage your self-confidence and ability to live a fully functional life. Eating, speaking, and smiling become especially difficult. Our dentist and team are pleased to offer dental implants as an outstanding solution for our patients facing tooth loss.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a special surgical treatment designed to replace your entire tooth, from the tooth root in your jawbone to the crown above the gum line. They can be used to replace a single lost tooth or help restore your entire smile. With dental implants, your smile will look natural and feel beautiful.
To place a dental implant in Wichita, Kansas, our team will:
- Surgically place the dental implant, a small metal post, in your jawbone
- Allow your gums to heal as the dental implant fuses to your bone
- Place an abutment onto the dental implant to hold your new tooth
- Permanently attach your dental restoration, generally a crown, bridge, or denture
This process can take anywhere from three to six months. We will guide you through each step of receiving dental implants and are here to answer any questions you may have. If you would like to learn more, we invite you to contact our dental office today. We are excited to help restore your smile and self-confidence.
