Advanced Procedures, Caring Hands & Exceptional Results That Will Last A Lifetime
The Benefits of Dental Implants
According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, approximately 3 million people receive 5.5 million implants each year in the United States; this number is growing by an additional 500,000 more patients each year.
Dental Implants Are The Most Beneficial & Advanced Option for Replacing Missing Teeth
- IMPROVED APPEARANCE. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
- IMPROVED SPEECH. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
- IMPROVED COMFORT. Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
- EATING IS ENJOYABLE. Dentures interfere with chewing, making eating difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
- IMPROVED SELF ESTEEM. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
- DURABILITY. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
- CONVENIENCE. Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
Dentures & Bridges vs. Dental Implants
Dental Implants Offer Less Collateral Damage. Prior to dental implants, if you lost a single tooth, the surgeon would have to sacrifice the 2 adjacent teeth to use them as anchors to bridge the tooth. Dental implants offer less collateral damage: a single-tooth implant. When considering benefits, function and long-term success, Dental Implants are by far the best method of replacing teeth.
Dental Implants Are Life Changing
Full and partial dentures have their shortcomings; dentures must be removed and cleaned regularly to avoid infections or disease, including bad breath. Cheap or improperly fitting dentures may be uncomfortable and can move around in the mouth, causing pain and chewing difficulties. And for those who have replaced their missing teeth with permanent bridges attached to natural teeth, you may not have as many functional issues compared to dentures, but in the long term, you may find that even these bridges have problems and or fail due to decay, gum disease or fracture.
Dental implants are placed securely into the patient’s jawbone ~ acting as natural teeth ~ which eliminates all of the aforementioned issues.
Dental Implants Improve Oral Health
Dental implants do not require the reduction of adjacent teeth, and since nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, your healthy teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access to brush and floss between teeth, improving oral hygiene. Without an implant, there are many side effects including the loss of the jawbone and shifting of surrounding teeth; all of which greatly reduce chewing ability. The success rate of Dental Implants is 98%. Implants are one of the most beneficial procedures available in dentistry to preserve your teeth.
DEMYSTIFYING DENTAL IMPLANTS
+ A Step-by-Step Guide to the Dental Implant Process
Dr. Kur continues to be a leader in the advancements & techniques in the area of Dental Implants. In a recently published an article in Phelps Magazine, Dr. Kur sheds light on the misconceptions associated with dental implants.
Because dental implants require one or more surgical procedures, Dr. Kur will do a thorough evaluation to prepare for the implantation process.
The process in which dental implant surgery is performed and the healing timeframe depends on the type of implant and the condition of your jawbone. A number of factors are taken into account; the number of teeth needed to be replaced, the health of your oral tissue and the condition of your jawbone. The major benefit of implants is solid support for your new teeth — a process that requires the bone to heal tightly around the implant.
Dr. Kur will perform the majority of his cases in one surgical visit;
extraction, reconstruction and implant placement.
In some instances, the patient may have a General Dentist place a temporary crown simultaneously, in other circumstances the implant(s) may require 3 months of full integration, and then you will be ready for the General Dentist to restore the implants. Dr. Kur works closely with the restorative dentist to ensure continuity of care and predictable results.
Consultation + Treatment Plan
The first step in the dental implant process is the development of an individualized treatment plan. The plan addresses your specific needs and is prepared by Dr. Kur and his team of professionals who are specially trained and experienced in oral surgery and restorative dentistry. This team approach provides coordinated care based on the implant option that is best for you.
Extraction + Preparation
Dr. Kur will extract the damaged tooth and your jawbone is prepared for surgery; a process that may involve bone grafting.
The Titanium Implant
The next step is to implant a titanium post. The implant itself is a titanium post that Dr. Kur screws into the bone socket of the missing tooth. After insertion and as the jawbone heals, the tissues grow around the implanted post, securing themselves in a process called osseointegration. This creates a more stable and secure anchor for the crown.
The Abutment & Crowning Jewel
Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post called an abutment is placed over the top of the implant to securely hold the new tooth. A new tooth will be created by making an impression of your teeth and creating a model of your bite (capturing all of your teeth, their type, and arrangement). The new tooth or teeth is based on this model. A color-match of the new tooth will be done so it blends in with the natural color of your teeth. The new tooth, called a crown, is then attached to the abutment.
Local anesthesia can be used during the procedure, and most patients report that implants involve less pain than a tooth extraction. Most people who have received dental implants say that there is very little discomfort involved in the procedure. After the dental implant, mild soreness can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications, such as Tylenol or Motrin.
Caring For Your Dental Implants
Dental Implants require the same care as real teeth, including brushing, flossing, rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash, and regular dental check-ups. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.

Dr. Kur extracted my 4 wisdom teeth, and also gave me four implants. Not once did I have any pain after both procedures. He did an amazing job! He and his staff were extremely friendly and very informative the entire time. If you need oral surgery this is the place to go.
Dr. Kur and his staff made my experience truly wonderful. I was in such excruciating pain until I couldn’t function. They performed an emergency extraction on my wisdom tooth. I felt much better after my surgery. The office is clean and very comfortable. Obviously no one wants to have a tooth removed, however, if you need to have this procedure done, then I would definitely recommend this practice.
Dr. Kur is an amazing oral surgeon. I had implant surgery performed & I did not experience any discomfort at all. The surgery and healing process was painless. He made sure I was totally comfortable throughout the surgery. His staff was equally compassionate. Dr. Kur followed up with a phone call in the evening to make sure I was doing well. He is an excellent doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of oral surgery.
Dr. Kur and his staff are fantastic. Unfortunately, my son, age 6, had to have one of his molars removed. Not only did this procedure go extremely well, (and very quick) but there was no complaining of pain afterwards. I would highly recommend Dr. Kur to anyone looking for an Oral Surgeon. Great experience!
Dr. Kur was nice, comforting, and made my extractions & implants as painless as possible. The office staff was equally as pleasant, making the paperwork as effortless as possible and were very welcoming. There is also a good payment plan available if you need it.
I had a very complex oral surgery performed by Dr. Kur. I was very anxious about having the work done, but quickly relieved after speaking with Dr. Kur and his staff. I could not be more pleased with Dr. Kur. He took the time to explain everything to me in detail before performing the many steps of my treatment. Along the way, he and his staff assisted me with all my questions and concerns. I am very happy with the outcome. Dr. Kur is extremely proficient and professional and I strongly recommend him as he is “the best of the best!”
When you’re not feeling well, (your tooth is throbbing in pain) and unexpectedly need surgery, this is the place to go to. From the caring office team, and staff, Dr.Kur’s expertise and care for his patients in insurmountable. Dr. Kur did everything possible and succeeded in saving my tooth from being extracted.
Dr. Kur removed all four of my daughters wisdom teeth. The entire process was stress free. Dr. Kur and his staff were wonderful.
Dr. Kur is an amazing oral surgeon. He pulled one tooth and put in 2 implants. Mindful of my pain and my comfort, he reminded me of an artist enjoying his craft. As for his staff, nothing short of top notch. Professional and courteous. This is my oral surgeon forever!! As a matter of fact I am scheduled for more work in the near future. I would refer anyone who needs work done.
I had all four of my teeth extracted by doctor G. He was amazing!! It was very easy and I am a very anxious patient; he and his staff made me feel at ease and comfortable. He called me to check up on me and was very kind. 10/10!!!! Thank you!!!
I had an excellent experience with Dr. Kur, and all of his staff. Very friendly, very professional, and very clean facility! I was recommended by my dentist to have some of my wisdom teeth removed, and they made it a priority to make sure I felt welcomed and was comfortable with every step of the procedure. I had some back and forth issues with my insurance company regarding my initial appointment, and they went the extra mile to work around those issues and explore alternative solutions. The go-to place for dental surgery, especially for first timers!
I recommend Dr. Kur without reservation. Everyone on his team is highly professional and responsive. Every time I had a question or needed to make an appointment, my concerns were addressed immediately. Dr. Kur was very forthcoming about the procedure, leaving no questions or concerns unanswered. I never thought I would be describing dental surgery as a great experience.
I got two extractions and a post put in a couple months ago and it was so painless and the recovery was super fast and I didn’t need the pain meds at all! Even my regular dentist couldn’t believe I just got it done a week ago. Dr. Kur is fast friendly and to the point. I like that. He put me at ease on my concerns and even better he was right. Some say he’s a little pricey but he’s worth every penny. I believe in you get what you pay for and when I went to a cheaper place I ended up in a horror show and my recovery took forever. The place is clean. All the staff from the front desk to the back are friendly and professional and don’t make you feel like a number. Whoever you deal with there is great. Dr. Kur is awesome. If he runs for president I’m voting for him. If I wasn’t broke I’d mess up more of my teeth so he could fix them. Honestly, can’t say enough good things about him or his staff. Just go there, you won’t be sorry!!!!
My husband had minor oral surgery about 2 months ago. There are no adequate words to describe our experience that was very positive. This office is the best Dr.s office we have been in our 63 years of life. The doctor was absolutely outstanding throughout the process. His office runs like a clock…just perfect. Every single person we dealt there was very professional and very efficient. We are very grateful for the outstanding service that we were provided with!
Awesome practice, Dr. Kur, and the support staff are true professionals. It is so refreshing to be cared for in such a manner. Dr. Kur is extremely knowledgeable. He identified my problem and provided relief to an ongoing problem that I had been dealing with for almost two years. He is truly expert in his field. For the first time, I felt I got my money’s worth. Relief at last. I would recommend and will do so to anyone who needs an oral surgeon. FIVE STARS ARE NOT ENOUGH. Thank you, Dr. Kur and Staff.
I had a tooth that imploded under the gum line. I had been told to just leave it alone by another dentist. I knew something was wrong, and my primary care physician referred me to Dr. Kur for a second opinion. Dr. Kur advised removal of the tooth and an implant. Everything was done in three appointments. I have had no problems. I completely trust Dr. Kur and would not hesitate to contact him in the future.
Dr. Kur is a gentle, kind and thoughtful oral surgeon. I had 2 implants put in and he went the extra mile to prepare my mouth well for them, with a really good bone graft. And when he pulls a tooth, there is no pain in taking it out. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Great doctor. By far the best oral surgery experience I’ve had. I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed and didn’t even need painkillers.
Would highly recommend Dr. Kur for any kind of dental surgery. I had a tooth implant done and the process was seamless. Very modern equipment and efficient staff, which I also feel is very important. Dr. Kur is very confident of what he is doing and now I can confidently say that I would go by his recommendation for any procedure.
Dr. Kur and his staff are beyond amazing. I am so grateful for all of the time and top-notch services he’s provided thus far. As this is an ongoing, emotional and complex treatment plan, I couldn’t have asked to be in better hands and am so excited for the final outcome. 100% recommend to anyone in need of surgical dental procedures.
“Dear Dr Kur and all the staff,
I just wanted to say thank you for giving for my daughter the upmost care and made it an easy procedure for her. I greatly appreciate the kindness and gentleness that you and staff showed 🙂
One of the finest practices. The office staff is dedicated to customer service and the doctor is of the highest caliber skill. Dr. Kur utilizes state of the art equipment. The doctor has great communication skills as well as superior surgical skills. The recommendation to Dr. Kur came from an ENT physician who was also a dentist. He told me that “Dr. Kur was the oral surgeon of choice for him and his family.”
