Dental implants aren't just for the rich anymore. We've made replacing teeth with implants much more affordable. If you've ever wanted to get rid of that old uncomfortable partial denture or just want to replace a single tooth, Implants are a great way to do just that. The steps are simple and most people that have had implants placed by Dr. Kim state that the procedure is nearly painless.
As with many dental procedures, proper healing time is important. For implants, that's usually 3 to 6 months. The bone actually grows into the implant's surface in a process called, osseointrgration. If you don't think you have enough bone for an implant, 'Bone Grafting' can be done to replace missing bone so that your implant is strong and healthy.
A relatively new way of speeding up healing is to use growth factors. Your own is best. Dr. Kim can get growth hormones that are genetically yours, by a process called PRP isolation. It is a state of the art procedure that reduces healing time, strengthens the implant/bone interface and enhances bone growth.
Implants are not out of reach anymore. Schedule an appointment to discuss your options and see how implants can get you closer to a stable bite and a healthy Smile.
