Restore Health and Beauty to Your Smile
Do you have missing teeth? If you do, dental implants are one of the very best ways to replace them. A dental implant is an artificial tooth that is supported by a titanium fixture that placed in the jaws. It blends in very well with the rest of your teeth. Once you visit Richmond Dentist Dr. Tony Kwong, not only will you be able to eat and chew more efficiently, you will be able to smile with more confidence. Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants. Each candidate must be evaluated to ensure a good result. Please call our Richmond Dental Office for a free consultation to see if dental implants will work for you.
The process of getting dental implants can sometimes take a few months. The main requirement for successful implant placement is having enough volume of sound healthy bone. If the teeth have been missing for an extended period, we will occasionally require bone grafting procedures to build up the ridge where we will eventually place the implants.
Once we have established that the site is ready for implant placement, the implant is placed and given a few months to adequately heal. Some discomfort is to be expected after the procedure, but that will go away after a few days. At The Urban Dentist, we will ensure that adequate medication and postoperative care be given to make our patients comfortable. Once the implant has healed properly, a crown that looks like the tooth is placed on top of the implant. This completes the implant process and restores your smile.
