Earned his bachelor’s degree in nutritional sciences from the University of Missouri in Columbia. His desire to learn about anatomical processes and biological sciences, combined with exposure to his father’s dental office early in life are what influenced his decision to attend dental school. Dr. Gordon grew up in Kansas City, Missouri, and has lived here most of his life. He attended the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Dentistry Dental School where he received his DDS degree. Since then, he has taken hundreds of hours of continuing education every year in Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry to stay at the forefront of the latest and greatest dental techniques and advancements.
Dr. Gordon wants to establish great relationships with his patients, and provide them with the best dental care available. He enjoys all dental procedures, but has a particular interest in, and emphasizes cosmetic smile design, surgical procedures, and implant dentistry. Dr. Gordon and his wife, Lorie, have two young boys, Ben and Jack. They enjoy traveling and spending time with family. Dr. Gordon’s commitment to excellence and service is part of what makes our office the best place for cosmetic and general dentistry.
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
