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 & Process
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.
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.
Following Your Implant Procedure
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.
