Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are foundations for replacement teeth. They’re designed to function like a natural tooth root, giving you stability so you can eat, drink, smile, laugh, and talk just like you would with a full set of natural teeth.

The dental implant is placed along your jawbone, under your gums. Getting it placed requires a minor surgical procedure, but the experts at Hyun S. Bang, DDS, use the most innovative technologies available today to minimize your discomfort while giving you great results.

Once your dental implant is placed and the area heals, the implant serves as a root for replacement teeth. The team at Hyun S. Bang, DDS, creates the replacement tooth or teeth to perfectly match the surrounding teeth.

Their gentle, laser-assisted dental implant process is designed to be low-pain, and the result is a beautiful, natural-looking smile and teeth that allow you to eat without worry.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Replacement teeth are available on removable dentures that can be placed in the mouth without the need for any procedure, so why go through the process of placing a dental implant? There are a few significant benefits:

Longevity

Dental implants fuse with your bone, meaning they’re a permanent way to replace your tooth. With proper care, your dental implant can last a lifetime.

Appearance

The dental implant serves as the root for replacement teeth that look just like your natural teeth. You never have to worry about someone seeing you with your removable dentures out of your mouth.

Lifestyle

With a dental implant, you can eat and smile confidently, never worrying that your replacement tooth has shifted out of place.

Ease in talking

Replacement teeth that aren’t firmly rooted can move as you talk. Even the slightest movement can cause a speech impediment.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Another benefit of dental implants is they don’t require any special care. You just need to maintain them the same way you do your other teeth, through regular brushing, flossing, and visits to Hyun S. Bang, DDS, for checkups and cleanings.
