If you've already lost or about to lose a tooth due to trauma, decay or periodontal disease, you may be interested in

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that Dr. Yi places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.
Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth.
While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework,
since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support, stability and retention.
When done correctly it is difficult to tell which tooth is an implant and which tooth is a natural tooth. Look at the after

Under proper conditions, such as dedicated placement by Dr. Yi and diligent patient maintenance, implants can
last a lifetime. Long-term studies continue to show improving success rates for implants.
