Thinking about getting dental implants? Dr. Ryan Brittingham provides complete dental implant treatment at our office in Lawrence, KS. Whether you have a single missing tooth or need full mouth restoration, dental implants can make your dream a reality.
An implant is essentially an artificial tooth root. When Dr. Brittingham sets it into the bone, your body naturally fuses to the implant surface, making it a permanent part of your smile! As long as you clean and maintain them properly, you can generally expect your dental implants to last for the rest of your life. Plus, they allow us to preserve the healthy teeth adjacent to them, as implants do not rely on neighboring tooth structures for support.
Has your dentist ever asked to see your high school picture from senior year?
One of the great things about dental implants is that we can use them to replace individual teeth, or pair them together for full mouth rehabilitation. Essentially, a hybrid full-arch prosthesis (such as an extended bridge) can be permanently attached to as few as four implants total. There’s no need to place an implant in each location where a tooth is missing!
Today’s dental implants look and feel like real teeth. Plus, they’re just as easy to care for. When you need to replace missing teeth, implants are the best option to consider. Dr. Brittingham can work with you to create a care plan that puts your individual needs first. Plus, we offer sedation dentistry if you want the most comfortable experience possible!
