We Can Help You Love Your Smile Again
At White Oak Dental Associates, we understand that your smile has a significant impact on your life. While smiling with a healthy, complete mouth might make you more confident, missing teeth can have the opposite effect.
A dental implant is the only restoration option that reverses the adverse effects of tooth loss. We can use this attractive implant solution to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or even an entire arch of your smile.
Choosing an Implant Provider
Dental implant treatment requires the skilled hands of an experienced dentist to ensure optimal results. While dentists are only required to complete a weekend-long course to place implants, we recommend choosing a dentist that’s gone above and beyond those expectations.
Dr. Kevin Owoc is an expert implant dentist who is continually growing his knowledge and skills in oral implantology. For example, he is a member of various renowned organizations, including:
- American Board of Oral Implantology — Diplomate
- American Academy of Implant Dentistry — Fellow
- International College of Oral Implantologists — Diplomate
- Academy of Implant Prosthodontics — Fellow
Each of these organizations requires extensive qualifications and examinations, including hundreds of hours of continuing education hours and intensive oral and written exams.
Dental Implant Candidacy
Before you can benefit from everything that dental implants offer, we advise scheduling a consultation with Dr. Owoc.
During this time, he’ll examine your oral structure and discuss what you hope to gain from treatment. Nearly everyone is immediately a candidate for implants, however, you might need a supplemental procedure such as a bone graft to prepare your smile.
The Process of Dental Implants
After your consultation, Dr. Owoc will place your implant and secure the stunning porcelain crown, which is the only part of the implant that anyone will see. Once the implant process is complete, you can show off your new smile to the world.
One of our patients’ favorite features of dental implants is their natural care regimen. Most tooth replacement options require extra maintenance. However, dental implants will last for many years to come as long as you brush twice a day, floss after meals, and continue seeing Dr. Owoc for biannual checkups.

Dental Implants FAQS
What are dental implants and how can they help me?
A dental implant is a permanent and natural-looking tooth replacement option that uses a titanium tooth root which is attached to the jawbone.
Once the artificial root or fixture piece has healed, it will support your natural-looking and highly functional replacement tooth.
I have several missing teeth, what is the best tooth replacement option for me?
Your first step should always be to schedule a consultation at White Oaks Dental Associates. This initial exam will allow us to understand your conditions and explain all options.
With our different tooth replacement solutions available, Dr. Owoc will be sure to provide you with the right information to determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implants.
What are the advantages of choosing dental implants?
Other options provide basic tooth function but not much else. Alternatively, dental implants are permanent, strong, and most natural-looking of all the options.
They also help improve oral health and are the only option that strengthens jaw muscles and reduces jawbone deterioration. So if you would like to talk, smile, and eat with comfort, try dental implants!
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are the most durable and longest-lasting tooth replacement option available. Each implant is designed to last a lifetime with proper oral care.
