Burbank Dental Implants – Implant Dentistry
Melvin A. Kum, DMD, MAGD, FICOI has been offering Burbank dental implants for 17 years to patients looking to restore and enhance the beauty of their smile. At our practice, we understand that fully functioning, healthy-looking teeth can significantly impact a patient’s self-confidence. Dr. Kum offers mini dental implants in Burbank as well as dentures and Straumann dental implants to ensure that patients leave with a smile that they can be proud of.
It can often be difficult to find a dental practice that places and restores dental implants in Burbank. Many practices refer patients out to an oral surgeon who places the dental implants; the patient is then required to return to have a permanent restoration attached to the implant. Dr. Kum’s practice is unique in that we are specialized in the placement and restoration of your dental implants. We begin by creating a treatment plan that is tailored to meet the needs of each patient. Dr. Kum then assesses your current health and the site where the implant(s) will be placed to determine if a bone graft is needed to provide support for the implant.
If Dr. Kum determines that you are a suitable candidate for dental implants, he will surgically place a titanium “root” in your jaw bone and allow several months for the site to heal. Once the implant integrates with the jaw bone, a permanent crown is attached to a custom-made abutment on top of the implant. The recovery time will vary depending on bone integrity, how many teeth are being placed, and other procedures that are required before the dental implant surgery.
Reasons to consider dental implants:
• To replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
• Dental implants can sometimes resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
• To restore your smile.
• To restore normal chewing, speech, and digestion.
• To restore or enhance facial tissues.
• To support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.
How much do dental implants cost?
Dr. Kum understands that cost is an important factor when it comes to any dental procedure. The cost of dental implants in Burbank depends on several factors including the number of teeth being replaced and the number of dental implants required to support your replacement teeth. Additionally, some procedures may be necessary before the dental implant is placed to ensure the longevity of your dental implants. If you wish to obtain an estimate specific to your case, it’s best to have our Burbank dental implant dentist examine your situation and treatment goals.
Whether you are looking to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, Burbank dental implants are a stable, permanent solution that can help you regain your confidence and restore your smile back to a fully functioning and beautiful state.
