At Mill Creek Dentistry, one of our aims is to change the way people think about dental implant surgery. We establish real and meaningful patient relationships in a supporting, caring atmosphere. One patient at a time, Dr. Michael Dostal, Dr. Lauren Andreas and Dr. Brittingham are transforming dental stereotypes at our practices in Lee’s Summit, MO and Shawnee, KS! We are one of the only practices in the region to offer cutting-edge technology for full mouth dental implants, and with the combination of years of experience and state-of-the-art technology, our dental implant procedures are safer and less painful than ever before! We also offer affordable dental implants that are surprisingly accessible in terms of cost.
Dental implants are made up of three components—post, abutment, and restoration—that mimic the function of natural teeth. Secured in your jawbone, dental implants are one of the most versatile tooth replacements available, able to replace any number of missing teeth. This permanent solution requires the precision of a skilled implant dentist and advanced surgical technology to optimize the outcomes of your treatment and its long-term success. Our team routinely provides dental implant treatment across a variety of cases, leveraging state-of-the-art technologies and high-quality materials for best results. With our expertise, we can help you experience a life of health, function, and confidence with dental implants in Lee’s Summit, MO and Shawnee, KS!
Missing teeth are a burden to anyone’s quality of life. Bad teeth can affect your happiness, your self-confidence out in public, and even your nutrition and general health by limiting the types of foods you can eat. Whether you need a single dental implant or multiple dental implants, Mill Creek Dental offers permanent solutions using the industry’s most advanced state-of-the-art materials.
Historically speaking, the truth about dental implants has been that yes, they can be painful. However, Mill Creek Dentistry is one of the few dental practices not only in the Midwest, but in the entire country, that offers technological advancements that allow patients to feel less pain during and after their dental implant surgery, and to recover quicker!
Computed tomography technology such as our 3D Anatomage software allows us to digitally recreate a patient’s unique arch and employ precise implant planning that results in limited pain and near-perfect results, every single time. In other words, fear about dental implant procedures can be a thing of the past when you come in to see our dentists!
One of the most common questions we get from patients is, “Are dental implants painful?” To be clear, there will always be some level of discomfort with any dental implant surgery. As we highlighted above, however, Mill Creek Dentistry offers the experience and technology needed to provide a surgery that is as pain-free as possible. We also pride ourselves on patient education and conduct detailed personalized consultations with each patient we see.
Dental implants are highly dependent on jawbone density, and this requires in-depth scans in order to gauge the severity of bone loss and degradation. Depending on the amount of time a patient has been missing teeth, procedures like bone grafting may be necessary in order to rebuild bone density to the point that the jaw can support a permanent implant. Regardless of your individual condition, we feel education and preparation are key in order to deliver the best results possible for any dental implant surgery.
When it comes to dental implant surgery, Mill Creek Dental offers industry-leading technology, including same-day dental implants. With our immediate load solutions, patients are able to leave with new provisional teeth on the same day of their procedure. We also strive to be competitive with the average cost of dental implants, so that you can focus on enjoying your new smile – not on worrying about the price of dental implants.
Whether you are missing a front tooth, need entire full mouth dental rehabilitation, or need to restore dental implants that you have received in the past, Mill Creek Dental offers the experience and elite level of service to deliver world-class results. Together, Dr. Dostal, Dr. Andreas and Dr. Brittingham have placed over 2,000 implants, and we pride ourselves on offering affordable dental implants and state-of-the-art technologies in a warm, family-like environment.
Mill Creek Dentistry offers full five-year warranties on most of our comprehensive procedures and will replace or repair implants at no charge if they break, are lost, or if they decay with normal use. (Our warranty does not cover accidents that cause damage to the teeth, implants or dental prosthesis.) Depending on each patient’s specific procedure and oral health, follow-up visits may be scheduled every three, four or six months. Failure to attend scheduled recare visits with our office will void all warranties.
