Living with missing teeth can be a chore. One or more missing have a negative impact on your comfort, confidence, oral health, and ultimately your quality of life. Historically, bridges were required to replace certain missing teeth. The process involves impacting health teeth. Today, the more conservative approach can be dental implants. At Ryoo Dental, Dr. Ryoo offers several tooth replacement options, but with an emphasis on dental implants.
Dental Implants can:
A dental implant is a titanium tooth root that is positioned surgically in your jawbone. Once it heals, a dental crown is placed on the implant to restore function and appearance. Your natural teeth are the best teeth, but a dental implant is the next best thing.
A thorough evaluation of your bone quality, bone quantity and location are the essential first step in determining if you are a qualified patient for Implants. At Ryoo Dental, Dr. Ryoo uses state-of-the-art CT scans to develop a precise treatment plan.
Dr. Ryoo and his team have over 20 years experience in placing Implants for single tooth replacements as well as dentures.
Dental implants are designed to be permanent replacements for your missing teeth. They are considered the optimal solution for missing teeth, as they are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. They are the very best approach for supporting crowns, and they also stop the loss of jawbone that occurs in the absence of tooth roots.
The implant post is a small screw made of titanium or another biocompatible material. It is surgically inserted into your jawbone to replace your tooth roots, and it performs the same functions as your tooth root in ensuring that your teeth remain stable in your mouth and stimulating your jawbone to keep your supporting bone tissue healthy.
An implant restoration replaces the visible portion of the tooth, and it is designed to be blend in with your smile to give you a beautiful result as well as restore full function.

Implant-retained dentures are very similar in form to traditional dentures; however, they are stabilized by dental implants. Very often, denture wearers complain that dentures become loose and “float” around the mouth, limiting their ability to eat and speak comfortably. Implant dentures are a cost-effective solution, and in many cases, we can even retrofit an existing denture with implants.
The first step in anchoring your denture with dental implants is the placement of the implants. The dental implants are small titanium screws surgically inserted into the jawbone in order to securely anchor your denture. While the specific number of implants required will depend on your individual needs, most cases require four to six dental implants per denture. Once the implants have been placed and allowed sufficient healing time, your denture is attached on top.

Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. They are also used to support dental bridges. A bridge is a false tooth or set of teeth, which is used to fill in the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Bridges are usually made from porcelain or ceramic, and they are attached to the natural teeth on either side of the gap. This type of dental restoration can be an effective way to restore your smile. However, it is important to note that implants are required to support the bridge. The implants act as artificial roots, providing a sturdy foundation for the bridge. If you are considering a dental bridge, be sure to discuss your options with your dentist. They can help you determine whether implants are right for you.
