Dental implant treatments are one of the most advanced ways to replace teeth because they look and feel more realistic. Dr. John H. Ko, DDS, provides dental implant restorations after successful implant placement, whether you are missing one tooth or several. Our restorations are created from high-quality materials by a trusted dental lab and applied with state-of-the-art care.

Dr. Ko Restores Function and Beauty
Dental implants are titanium posts placed in the jaw, designed to replicate the function of your natural tooth root after extraction. The post fuses to the jaw tissue through a process called osseointegration. This stimulates bone growth and helps prevent resorption, which can leave patients with a prematurely aged appearance. The deterrence of bone loss also prevents any change in facial structure.
Dental implants have several advantages over traditional prosthetic options. Removable partial dentures are prone to slip and often require messy adhesives. Implants are more aesthetically pleasing and secured directly to the bone.
After a trusted oral surgeon places your implant post, we allow adequate time for the treatment site to heal before affixing your custom-crafted restoration. Dr. Ko provides quality care throughout the procedure, ensuring your comfort while helping you achieve the smile you want.
Once the titanium post has fully integrated and fused with the jaw bone, an implant-supported restoration is custom-crafted for your specific smile. The result is a fully functional, comfortable, and natural looking smile.
Restorative procedures such as dental implants are becoming more affordable due in part to more financing options available. In-house programs and external organizations such as CareCredit offer the financing assistance you need to receive beneficial treatment in a timely manner. Implant treatment is typically completed over the course of several months, allowing patients to make smaller, regular repayments over time.
