Dr. Tae Een Park is experienced in the area of implantology, which includes the planning, placement and restoration of missing teeth with dental implants, whether it is a single missing tooth or full mouth dental implants. Before development of implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet bio-compatible material like metal or ceramic. 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 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.
