Advantages of Dental Implant

Functional

  • Eliminate irritated and painful gums
  • No need to "cut down" healthy teeth
  • Improve your speech by eliminating or reducing the "fullness" of full or partial dentures
  • You can Floss! and therefore maintain healthier dental hygiene

Esthetic

  • It looks just like a natural tooth!
  • Help stop the bone loss and shrinkage of your jawbone. You will look much younger and healthier, therefore your confident level goes up!

Can be more economical

Bridges and dentures are not a permanent solution to a missing tooth. With a proper care and regular check-ups with a dentist, dental implant can last a very long time. When calculating a total amount of replacements of bridges and dentures, dental implant can be more cost effective. Dr. Li is currently offering a special price on dental implants.

What are the procedures?

  • Consultation with Dr. Li: Dr. Li will examine your current condition to find the best treatment
  • Depending on multiple factors (number of tooth, presence of infection, etc.), your tooth may need to be extracted and grafted with bone prior to the day of implant surgery. In that case, we will wait about 4-6 months for bone to heal since a good foundation is a key to success
  • Implant Surgery: an implant body (similar to a root of natural tooth) will be placed into the bone
  • You will come back in 2 weeks for Dr. Li to exam on healing process
  • You may return in 4 months - 8 months from the surgery day depending on your health, the bone density and other different factors for impression to make your crown
  • After 2 weeks of impression day, your final crown will be delivered!
Some may want to expedite the implant procedure but giving enough time for healing process is another key factor for a long term success.
