Earned his bachelor’s degree in nutritional sciences from the University of Missouri in Columbia.

Dental Implants

At Gordon Dental Implants & Cosmetics we offer comprehensive dental implant care, from implant placement to restorations. Receiving all of your implant care from one office ensures better, more complete care and successful results. But no matter if you’ve had your implants placed by Dr. Gordon himself or another clinician, we are pleased to create and place a custom restoration piece to complete your implant.

If you already have dental implants, then you know how life-changing they can be. Implants are an excellent tooth replacement solution that offers a life-like appearance, feel, and function of real teeth and are far superior to any other option.

The success rate of dental implants is very high, over 95% depending on factors like where the implant was placed, the patient’s jawbone quality, and the area of the implant. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime, but like your natural teeth or tooth restorations, they may require repairs over time.

About 25% of what Philip Gordon DDS performs is “re-do” implant dentistry, which includes removing, saving, or replacing implants with issues. Not only do we help patients with complicated single front tooth to full mouth, and all on 4 or all on 6 implants, but unfortunately, we see an increasing amount of patients who have had problems with dental implants placed somewhere else. Most of these implant issues are avoidable by having your implants done right the first time. Dr. Gordon also performs “emergency” implants when front teeth have broken off, creating a cosmetic emergency. Neglect, fear, avoidance, gum disease, bone loss, and too many or failing root canals are just a few of the reasons why people need dental implants. Dr. Gordon and the team here at Gordon Dental Implants and Cosmetics are very sympathetic and understand what you’re going through. We never shame or judge our patients, and we feel truly honored to help you.

Single tooth implant

If you are looking to replace a single tooth, our practice provides a simple solution with single dental implants.

Multiple teeth implants

If you have more than one missing tooth, multiple tooth implants are a good option for patients with healthy teeth and gums

Full arch implants

If you need more than a simple single or multiple implant due to missing several natural teeth, a full mouth implant might work best for you

Q Why should I choose dental implants?

Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that mimic the look, feel and function of your natural teeth. Implants can restore 99% of function, allowing you to eat anything you want while looking completely natural and beautiful. With proper oral care and routine dental hygiene appointments, you can expect your implants to last the rest of your life.

Q What is the success rate of implants?

Implants placed by our doctor have a 95% success rate. With proper care of the implant and your oral health, they can successfully last your lifetime.

Q How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants varies from patient to patient depending on their needs. During your consultation we will take into consideration the number of teeth that need to be replaced, how much bone is available or if we will need to perform a bone graft or sinus lift prior to surgery, any tooth extractions, and if any infection is present.

Q How many teeth can I replace?

It is possible to replace single missing teeth, multiple missing teeth and even a full mouth lacking teeth. Multiple teeth in an area that are missing can be restored with an implant supported bridge, so you don’t need an individual dental implant for each missing tooth. For full-arch tooth loss we can place as little as two implants that support an entire denture or bridge, giving you a secure fit.

Q Do you restore my dental implants too?

Yes! We are a full-service implant dentist office. Dr. Gordon puts a heavy emphasis on cosmetic dentistry and can create a unique, beautiful dental crown to restore your dental implant. We always start with the end in mind (what your tooth will look like), so we ensure proper space is allowed for your tooth and it blends in seamlessly with your smile.

Q Am I a candidate for dental implants?

If you have one, many or a full arch of missing teeth you are likely a candidate for implants. You should be in good overall health and be free of any gum disease or infection. You may require bone grafting treatment to ensure proper security of your implant prior to surgery.

Q What if I don’t have enough bone to support implants?

Even if you have been told you don’t have enough bone to support dental implants, you may still be a candidate. Through bone grafting or sinus lift procedures we can rebuild bone in your jaw so you can get any number of implants placed.

Q Does implant surgery hurt?

This is a common misconception we often hear. Having dental implants placed is generally not painful and actually feels similar to having a tooth pulled. In fact, many of our patients say they hardly felt anything at all! With sedation, this is commonly reported to feel like a dull pressure at the site of implant surgery.

Q What is the process for getting dental implants?

Using 3D technology, we first take detailed images of your mouth which tells us exactly where the nerves are located and where the best possible location to place your implant(s) is. With this information we then create a computer guide and use it during surgery to precisely place your implant(s) in the jaw bone for the best results. Once healed, your dental implant will be restored with a lifelike and durable crown to blend into your smile.

Q Can I have a tooth removed and implant placed the same day?

In most cases we can remove a tooth, or multiple teeth, and place a dental implant the same day.
