Dental Implants An Overview
Replacing missing teeth is now easier than ever and patients enjoy the many benefits of advances made in materials, techniques and treatment options. Missing teeth can now be restored with function and aesthetics that closely mimic a natural tooth and enable patients to enjoy their best possible quality of life.
Serving Williamsport PA and surrounding communities, Dr. Joyce Kim offers a unique blend of personalized care, experience and advanced treatment options for patients who have missing teeth and desire to restore their smile with a lasting outcome. She places all types of dental implants for the replacement of one, several or a full arch of missing teeth.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Choosing a tooth replacement option is often overwhelming with the range of choices, varying costs, and outcomes. Dr. Kim takes the time to educate you on the condition of your dental health, most suitable options and what to expect along the way. During a consultation, she will evaluate all aspects of your smile and discuss your medical history and personal goals.
Dental implants can offer several key benefits for both oral and overall physical health:
- Replaces the tooth root: the implanted post will serve as a new tooth root and stabilizes bone tissue in the jaw, minimizing shrinkage and changes in your appearance.
- Restores natural chewing function and speech: implants fit and feel much like a natural tooth, enabling you to enjoy your favorite foods and speak confidently.
- Secure, permanent restoration: dental implants are permanent and do not require the use of adhesives to remain in place. Your new smile will feel natural and provide the best possible quality of life.
