Are you missing one or more permanent teeth? Do you yearn to have a beautiful, fully functional smile once again? Ask Drs. Kang and Cho how a dental implant in Fairless Hill, Pennsylvania, can help you.

What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a restoration that replaces both the crown and root of your tooth. This appliance is made up of a titanium implant post, which acts as replacement roots, and a dental restoration, which replaces the tooth.

Can anyone get dental implants?
To have dental implants placed, you should have healthy gums and enough jawbone structure to support the implant. In addition, you must be committed to proper dental hygiene and regular dental checkups. There are other things to consider, like whether or not you are a smoker. Talk to our dentists to see if dental implants are right for you.

How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are very strong. They can last for up to 25 years, or even longer with good care.

How do I care for my dental implants?
Care for your dental implants the way you care for your remaining teeth. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day. Also, it is important that you visit our office at least every six months for a cleaning and exam.
