Implant Dentistry FAQs

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants fuse to the jawbone, replacing the entire tooth, not just the visible portion of the tooth.

What different types of dental implants are there?

There are three different types of dental implants that can be used depending on the amount of jawbone you have or how much your jawbone has deteriorated. The different dental implants are root form implants, plate form implants, and subperiosteal implants.

To learn more about the different types of dental implants, visit our Types of Dental Implants page.

Am I a dental implant candidate?

For the most part, if you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants are the right choice for you. The only person that can determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants is a qualified cosmetic dentist like Dr. Kun. Dr. Kun will evaluate your jawbone and your dental health to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants.

What type of dental implant is right for me?

If you have a missing tooth and are considering dental implants, the only person who can determine which dental implant is right for you is an experienced cosmetic dentist. Dr. Kun will evaluate your overall health and your jawbone to determine what kind of dental implant is best for you.

How long will my dental implant procedure take?

Dr. Kun will be able to give a more definite timeline when you meet for an initial consultation. While the actual procedure may be relatively short, healing after you have received your dental implants can take months. As a result, the timeline for a dental implant procedure is unique for everyone.

How much does it cost?

Dental implants can be a costly procedure because they involve multiple appointments and can involve several surgeries. However, the result is a tooth replacement that performs and feels just like a natural tooth. Dr. Kun is proud to offer financing options so that your dental implant can fit well within your budget.

What can I expect?

Dental implants are an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth. This is because they replace the entire tooth, not just the visible portion of the tooth. By doing this, dental implants can prevent bone loss, gum disease, and tooth decay better than other cosmetic dentistry solutions.

Dr. Kun is a fellow of the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, and is experienced in restoring dental implants. If you have a missing tooth and you live in the Whitehall, Pennsylvania area, contact Dr. Kun today to schedule an initial consultation.
