Innovative tools to ensure optimal dental implant placement

Missing teeth can affect the look of your smile and also trigger other oral health problems down the road. If you are concerned about the health of your smile after losing a tooth, talk to Dr. Patrick Moriarty about tooth replacement. Dr. Moriarty has placed over 500 dental implants throughout his career and uses innovative tools to ensure optimal placement.

Dr. Moriarty Explains the Benefits of Dental Implants
Why Dental Implants Lawrence, KS

Reasons to get dental implants

We often recommend dental implants to patients who want a permanent solution to replace missing teeth. If you have several missing teeth but do not want dentures, we can place several implants to restore your smile. Other reasons include:

  • Permanent replacement after tooth extractions
  • Restore the smile after severe periodontal disease
  • Extensive bone loss
  • Osteoporosis that has weakened the teeth
  • Resorption of bone

15 million people in the U.S. have crown and bridge replacements for missing teeth


3 million have implants and that number is growing by 500,000 a year


10 percent of all US dentists place implants but that is increasing

Key benefits of dental implants

They are a sturdy, permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. They are a stable alternative to a bridge and are fused to the jaw bone to prevent bone loss. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Looks and feels like your natural teeth
  • Permanently integrated into the jaw bone
  • Can be placed to support a set of dentures
  • Improves aesthetics of your smile
  • Restores proper functioning of your smile
  • Customized for the patient

Undergoing a dental implant procedure

If you’ve decided to improve the look and function of your smile with dental implants, we will first need to make sure your gums and bone can accommodate the implant. Dr. Moriarty may need to perform a prep procedure such as bone grafting, gum restoration, and other procedures to ensure optimal placement. Dr. Moriarty uses the Galileos Cone Beam CT imaging device for the meticulous diagnosis and planning of implant placement. He also uses a CEREC machine for implant restorations so you can look forward to a beautiful final result.
