Dentist in Independence, MO
Have you recently had a dental implant? We are happy to provide dental implant restorations in Independence, Missouri. These restorations “cap” the implant post and are the visible part of your new tooth. Give Hanson Dentistry a call at 816-373-5606 to schedule a visit with our dentists, Dr. Robert N. Hanson and Dr. Steve Blum, and learn more about our care.
Dental implants are stable and long-lasting tooth replacements that, unlike many other restoration options, also encourage long-term jawbone health and strength. Each implant has two parts: the biocompatible implant post and the implant restoration. After your titanium post is surgically placed in your jawbone by an oral surgeon, our dentists and team will help you choose, design and set the visible portion of your tooth replacement: your dental implant restoration.
Following the post-surgery healing period, during which your implant post will integrate with your natural jawbone, our dentists will meet with you to discuss your restoration needs and aesthetic goals and help you determine which prosthetic tooth restoration is right for your smile. Replacing a single tooth may mean a single dental crown is the right choice for you. Replacing several missing teeth may warrant an implant-support bridge or denture. Whatever your choice, our team will custom design your restoration to fit your smile comfortably and beautifully. After being crafted in a dental lab, your restoration will be secured to your implant post via an abutment. We will make any needed adjustments to ensure your new smile looks natural, blends in with your surrounding teeth, and fully restores your ability to speak, eat and smile confidently before sending you along your way.
