    Implant Dentistry: 1. An Introduction to Dental Implants

    Get the Flash Player to see this player.

    If you have loose dentures or missing teeth, you may be considering dental implants. In this video, Dr. Rick Kline explains what you need to know about implant dentistry, while also identifying the best candidates for the procedure.

    With over 16 years of experience and more than 10,000 dental implant procedures under his belt, Dr. Kline draws patients from all over the world to his Houston practice where he focuses exclusively on dental implants. Rather than going from dentist to surgeon and back again, with Dr. Kline you will receive diagnosis and treatment all in one. He does both the surgery and positions the replacement teeth on top of the implants.

    Denture-wearers suffer from dentures that slip and slide around; patients who wear a partial have to deal with a lot of hardware in their mouth; and still other individuals just want to replace one missing tooth. Whatever your situation, dental implants are permanent, secure… and completely life-changing.

    Implant Dentistry: 2. Why Choose Dental Implants?

    Get the Flash Player to see this player.

    Why opt for dental implants over traditional dentistry? Find out by watching this video as Dr. Rick Kline details the immediate and long-term advantages of implant dentistry.

    If you’re missing teeth, the typical procedure in traditional dentistry is to grind down the adjacent teeth and put in a bridge. But if more teeth are lost, that bridge is only going to get longer and longer and less secure.

    Enter one of the greatest advantages of dental implants: When the implant is placed into the bone, it stimulates and preserves bone structure without touching the adjacent teeth and maintains its hold. Whether you need to replace one tooth, several teeth, or all of your teeth, the result is this: Years of lasting dental security and the ability to chew confidently again.

    Implant Dentistry: 3. The Technology Behind Dental Implants

    Get the Flash Player to see this player.

    Many candidates for dental implants have opted out of this procedure fearing large incisions, lengthy recovery time, and, especially, pain. New technology has changed all that – Dr. Rick Kline explains in this video.

    In his implant dentistry practice, Dr. Kline has long been using what is only now becoming common for traditional dentists – CAT scans that show the bone in three-dimension. Seeing the bone structure in such great detail enables Dr. Kline to then use sophisticated software to virtually plan out each implant case from start to finish. This is a huge advantage for the patient since it allows for a no-flap, no-incision dental implant placement – you can go back to work the same day, eat immediately after the surgery, and only need to take an over-the-counter pain reliever.

    Watch this video to see an example of the surgical guides Dr. Kline uses to complete an implant procedure.

    Implant Dentistry: 4. Non-Invasive Dental Implant Surgery

    Get the Flash Player to see this player.

    Implant dentistry may sound frightening, but today’s technology has created a non-invasive, low-pain, quick procedure with a brief recovery time. In this video, Dr. Rick Kline describes why you’re never too old for dental implants.

    By doing away with extensive surgery, today’s recipients of dental implants have a more rapid healing time. While many implant patients are older – because it’s often dentures that are getting replaced – age is no longer an issue. Those who once may not have been healthy enough can now qualify for the procedure and enjoy the many benefits of having a secure set of teeth.

    And for those who still fear being awake for the actual surgery itself, sedation dentistry is available to put you into a nice, light, comfortable sleep.

    Implant Dentistry: 5. Dental Implants vs. Dentures

    Tired of your unreliable, impossible-to-control dentures? Wishing you could once again eat whatever you want? Find out why dental implants can be a life-changing, confidence-boosting choice in this video featuring Dr. Rick Kline.

    When you choose dental implants, you can chew on delightful foodstuffs like corn on the cob and steak, strengthen your bite, and get a permanent solution to missing teeth. Dr. Kline explains how implant dentistry is done on both the lower and upper jaws (note on the latter: No dentures means no more covered palette, more room for the tongue, and even more taste buds exposed to enhance your dining pleasure.)

    Watch this video for the answers to FAQs about dental implants – and learn why your quality of life can be improved dramatically in one visit to this Houston cosmetic dentist.

    Implant Dentistry: 6. Creating a New Smile with Dental Implants

    Get the Flash Player to see this player.

    There is an art to creating new smiles through implant dentistry. Dr. Rick Kline discusses the various ingredients that go into producing an aesthetically pleasing and fully functional set of new teeth for his dental implant patients.

    In the past, dentures were as obvious as face lifts. With today’s technology and software, that’s not the case when it comes to dental implants. Each implant is a customized creation, separately designed to match the look of the patient in a natural way. Dr. Rick Kline calls the collaboration between himself, the dental lab he works with, and the patient as the “co-creation” of a beautiful smile.

    Those who have suffered silently with ill-fitting dentures often repress their true personality by stifling laughter or smiles for fear of losing their dentures in the process. Implant dentistry is life-changing, giving people the self-confidence they once had and lost. Watch this video for examples of people who have found new life through dental implants.

    See stunning before and after photos of dental implant cases in this video featuring world-renowned implant dentist Dr. Rick Kline. And find out the number one reason that holds people back from changing their lives through implant dentistry.

    One patient lost all confidence in her smile and withdrew from social settings. She refused to end up like her mother who struggled with dentures so she remained static, allowing her teeth to fall further and further into disrepair. Another patient’s fear kept her away from the dentist. She chose instead to smile with her mouth closed while decay and infection set into her gums and bones.

    These are just two cases Dr. Kline introduces in this video. Their problems are common, but their solutions are revolutionary thanks to implant dentistry. Watch now to see the amazing transformations.

    Implant Dentistry: 8. How Dental Implants Improve Your Health

    Still have questions about dental implants? In this video, Dr. Rick Kline explains why implants can improve your health dramatically and provides the real answers to misconceptions about this procedure.

    If you’re a denture-wearer or missing teeth, you know that your diet is severely compromised based on what you can and cannot chew. Nutrition, after all, starts in the mouth – and if you’re unable to chew the proteins and vegetables that are good for you, chances are you’re opting for less-nutritious alternatives. Implants can change your eating habits – for the better – in an instant.

    Topics also covered in this video: the longevity of dental implants, your viability as an implant candidate, and how long it takes to complete a dental implant procedure.
