Dental Implants

Dental implants are changing dentistry as we know it. Used to replace missing teeth, dental implants will replace both the crown of the tooth and the tooth’s root, providing unsurpassed stability and security for your smile. At our office, we use Biocare® implants for their high quality. The implant process requires several months and involves surgically placing a titanium man-made root (implant) into the jawbone. After you have had time to heal, Dr. Howard Nguyen will attach a dental implant restoration to the implant. This restoration could be a:

  • Crown
  • Bridge
  • Complete or partial denture

When complete, your dental implant can look, feel and function like a natural tooth. Your implant is also designed to last for a lifetime and will remain in good condition as long as you care for it as you would your original tooth — by brushing and flossing daily and visiting the dentist regularly.

Anyone who has lost teeth is a candidate for dental implants, and most patients are able to receive implants without complications. If you have tooth decay, gum disease or another dental condition, you will need to receive treatment for that issue prior to receiving an implant. Our dentist will carefully examine your mouth before providing an implant to diagnose any preexisting conditions and provide treatment.
