Tooth implants are versatile tools for restoring esthetics and function to your mouth. These tiny titanium screws can be used to replace individual teeth and provide results once only achieved through partial dentures or bridges. Today, Dr. Kari Ann Hong uses implants to restore your smile without affecting any adjacent teeth or requiring a bulky appliance. As an implant dentist, she brings years of training and expertise to your dental needs.
Implant placement usually takes about 2 hours, including paperwork and post-op consultation. However, this time frame can vary depending on the location of the implant and your individual needs. After placement, it will take about four months for the bone to completely attach to the implant. If necessary, we can make a temporary denture or essix retainer to use until you are fully healed.
