Implants

Before development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth.

Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.

Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet biocompatible material like metal or ceramic.

Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for an implant and place the implant in the mouth. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect the tooth.

Because implants require surgery, patients are administered anesthesia and, if necessary, antibiotics to stave off infection following the procedure.

Like any restoration, implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time.

    "My husband and I recently started treatment with Dr. Wang and have found him to be an excellent dentist.  We have found him to be cordial and professional, knowledgeable and extremely thorough.  What has been most refreshing is that he takes his time to explain his evaluation …  pointing out issues to be addressed.  During procedures he explains what he is doing and what to expect; he also checks throughout to make sure we are comfortable.  Also, with any concerns we have had, he has called personally on the phone to discuss them.  We have been very pleased with Dr. Wang’s care of our dental needs."
