Our dentist and dental team are pleased to offer several options for replacing missing teeth. One of the tooth replacement options we offer is dental implants. Dental implants consist of a screw-like post and a dental restoration, like a dental crown. The dental implant post is surgically placed by a specialist. At our dental office, we provide the restoration for the dental implant. Some common restorations for dental implants include dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures.

Dental implants can replace a missing tooth with a restoration that looks and functions like a natural tooth. Implants can also provide a denture with added security so it does not easily slip or come loose. If you have lost one or more teeth, or if you currently wear dentures, we encourage you to contact our dental office to learn more about how dental implants can help.

Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime. This provides a permanent restoration for your missing teeth. Implants feel, look, and function like your natural teeth, and they can help to restore the health, beauty, and function of your smile after tooth loss. To learn more about standard and mini dental implants in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, we invite you to contact Dr. James D. Schuette by calling our office today. We are eager to restore your smile!
