Crafting Smiles Built to Last

The absence of teeth can present numerous challenges, affecting oral health and overall well-being. From difficulty chewing and speaking to a loss of confidence in your appearance, the impact of missing teeth can be significant. The surrounding teeth may shift over time, leading to bite misalignment and further dental complications.

Fortunately, dental implants, especially full mouth dental implants, offer a transformative solution to these pain points. Dental implants restore your smile’s functionality, stability, and aesthetics by serving as sturdy foundations for artificial teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants integrate with the jawbone, preventing bone loss and providing long-lasting support. With dental implants, you can regain the ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently, enjoying improved oral health and a renewed sense of well-being.

Am I A Candidate for Implants?

Dental Implants at a Glance

A dental implant is a tooth restoration solution designed to replace missing teeth with teeth closely resembling natural teeth in appearance and function. They have three main components: the implant, abutment, and prosthesis (teeth). The implant fixture is a titanium post surgically placed into the jawbone, serving as a sturdy foundation for the replacement tooth. The abutment connects the implant fixture to the prosthesis, custom-made to match the surrounding teeth’ shape, size, and color.

Dental implants provide unparalleled stability and durability, preventing bone loss and maintaining jawbone integrity. They also offer superior aesthetics, blending with the natural smile for a lifelike appearance. With their ability to restore the form and function of missing teeth, dental implants have become the preferred choice for individuals seeking a long-term solution to tooth loss.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Multiple Options. One Smile Solution.

We recognize that no two patients are alike. For that reason, we offer a variety of dental implant solutions, including single implants. A dental implant seamlessly fills the gap for a missing tooth, providing stability and a natural appearance. If you have multiple missing teeth, implant-supported bridges offer enhanced stability and aesthetics compared to traditional bridges.

Implant-supported dentures are popular for those missing several teeth, providing a secure and comfortable fit without concerns of slippage or discomfort. Full mouth dental implants offer a comprehensive solution, providing a fixed, complete set of teeth that restore both function and appearance, serving as an exceptional alternative to removable dentures. With these versatile implant options, you can regain your smile and confidence with a solution that suits your dental needs.

Step-by-Step Guide to Restoring Your Smile

Your treatment begins with a consultation, where we will thoroughly discuss your dental and medical history. We’ll utilize digital diagnostics to evaluate the current state of your oral health, identifying potential needs for additional procedures like bone grafting or tooth extraction .

Understanding your smile goals and treatment expectations is vital, as it allows us to craft a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. This plan serves as a roadmap for Dr. Joon Park and our team when we perform the full mouth dental implant placement procedure.

Once your treatment plan is created, we’ll make small incisions in your gums and place 4-6 dental implants into predetermined spots within your jawbone to ensure optimal durability. Once placed, we’ll attach an abutment connector to your implants and set your temporary teeth on top. These provisional teeth will allow you to enjoy the benefits of your new smile while your mouth heals.

Over the next 4-6 months, the dental implants will fuse with your jawbone through osseointegration. Once your implants have healed, we’ll place your custom-made final set of teeth to your implants and reveal your permanent, beautiful, and functional new teeth, leaving you to enjoy decades of radiant smiles! With routine checkups and proper at-home care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
