Dental Implants, Lee’s Summit MO
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, speak clearly and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are lost.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! Overall health is improved through better nutrition when partials and dentures are secured with implants. With dental implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
Dr. Morris has received extensive training in Dental Implantology. He is one of a select few who has a Certificate in Dental Implantology from a university — The University of Missouri — and has been successfully placing dental implants since 1993. This certificate is the result of Dental Implant training over a 2-year residency (and not just from a week-end course).
Through continuing education, Dr. Morris is abreast of the most current information on implant dentistry.
