What are Dental Implants?

3d render of dental implantA dental implant is a whole replacement tooth, including the tooth root and dental crown. The implant is a titanium post surgically placed into your jaw at the site of the missing tooth. Titanium is compatible with bone and can integrate to establish a stable hold for the implant crown, just like a normal tooth.

Because it fuses with the bone, your dental implant post can nurture bone volume, which is excellent for your oral health. Once your dental implant post has adequately healed, the post is topped with a custom-made prosthetic.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular choice for tooth replacement because they:

  • Preserve bone in the jaw
  • Maintain natural facial aesthetic
  • Are a permanent, fixed solution
  • Prevent other teeth from shifting into missing space
  • Restore bite function
  • Support dentures securely and comfortably
  • Replace missing teeth without affecting other teeth
  • Look and feel like your natural teeth
  • Are easier to clean than other restoration options

Dr. Lee and Dr. Park will conduct a thorough initial evaluation to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for dental implants. Generally, if you are not experiencing signs of gum disease and do not have reduced bone in your jaw, you will benefit from the dental implant procedure.

What Happens After Tooth Loss?

close up of smiling man at dentistWhen a tooth is lost, the visible section of the smile is not the only area impacted. Tooth roots are essential to keeping your jaw bone stimulated and healthy. The jaw bone begins to recede without these roots, resulting in a prematurely aged appearance due to shrinking bone. Although dental implant posts replace roots, the treatment's success is limited without the right amount of existing jawbone.

We offer bone grafting and sinus lifts to restore jawbone volume, making you a viable candidate for dental implants. When implants replace both lost teeth and their roots, they also work to restore the essential stimulation your jawbone needs to remain functional, full, and healthy. Dental implants also help keep any remaining natural teeth in place, preserving a proper bite and dental function.

The Implant Treatment Process

Beginning with an initial consultation, our team prepares a custom placement plan just for you. If you have any existing gum disease, we will treat that first. Your dental implant treatment is customized according to current jawbone density and the location of natural teeth. Each implant is strategically placed to achieve successful results.

Dental implant posts are made of biocompatible titanium and surgically placed into the jawbone. The treatment can be combined with a variety of prosthetics to restore your smile. Once placed, posts fuse with the jawbone and enhance jaw strength. This permanent placement provides durable support for custom restorations, including:

Porcelain crowns: This single-tooth restoration is attached to one implant post for a natural look and function.

Bridges: A prosthetic is suspended between two dental implants to replace multiple teeth in a row.

Partials: Customized prosthetics that can replace several teeth in a line or sporadically missing teeth.

Dentures: These restorations fit securely and comfortably to replace full rows of teeth on the upper and lower arches or both.

All-On-4® Implant Treatment

This technique uses four implant posts to attach permanent, full arch prosthetics to the top and bottom jaw. The hybrid denture is comfortable and requires the same simple care as natural teeth. They make it easier to bite and taste your food, and provides essential support for your facial features.
