What Are Dental Implants?
Time is allowed for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. A support post (abutment) is then placed on the implant and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the abutment. In many cases a temporary replacement tooth can be attached to the implant immediately after it is placed. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.
Dr. Won has been providing dental implant service in Raleigh, Durham, Cary and Elizabeth City area since 2005. Schedule your free consultation today.

Dental Implant FAQs
Does Dental Implant Surgery Hurt?
What Does Recovery Look Like?
Some patients do need to use prescription pain meds. However, many of our patients only require ibuprofen and acetaminophen to manage post-op pain. Fortunately, many patients will get back to their regular routine within a few days.
What Should I Get Between a Dental Implant and a Bridge?
While there are more expensive than dental bridges, they are longer lasting and will save you money in the long run. Bridges require frequent replacements; the vast majority of implants do not.
How Successful Are Typical Dental Implants?
One of the top reasons dental implants fail is due to poor placement and implants being placed at a wrong angle. At POM Oral Surgery, this never happens.
How Should Patients Care For Their Implants Post Surgery?
Even after your implant has healed, the oral surgeons at POMS Oral Surgery are experienced and uniquely qualified to provide ongoing care. We have invested in high-quality dental technology designed to help us care for your implants in a healthy manner. We will also advise you on the optimal oral hygiene for your implants.
How Long Do Quality Implants Last?
That said, you should note that the longevity and durability of your implants are dependent on the care you give your implants. Poor dental hygiene and smoking can cause a deterioration of implants, in some cases, a failure.
Will Your Dental Implants Have a Natural Look and Feel?
How durable and strong are the dental implants in comparison with real teeth?
Quality dental implants are just as strong as natural teeth. However, they are resistant to decay, so you do not have to worry about cavities.
What Are The Costs of Dental Implants?
- Number of implants
- The difficulty of the procedure
- The health of the patient

“Don’t be afraid to Smile.”
For years I’d felt like a part of my body was missing — because my teeth were. My dentist told me that dental implants would make me feel and look a lot better. OK, I said. Now, I’m thrilled. I can smile, eat anything, and enjoy a good laugh with my friends.
Surgical Advances in Dental Implants
Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. Dr. Won performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary. The restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.
