Patients that are missing teeth can suffer from low self-esteem and low self-confidence, not to mention the loss of bone in their jaws. The oral surgeons at Foster City Oral Surgery Specialists are proficient in restoring patients’ smiles and oral health with dental implants. Hear about the experiences of other patients who received dental implants.
Dental implants provide an answer for many patients who have missing or broken teeth. As a complete tooth replacement option, dental implants are a permanent solution that can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. Dr. Yang and Dr. Lee can design a dental implant treatment plan just for you.

During your procedure, your oral surgeon surgically places the dental implant into the jaw bone, and the implant fuses with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration. Although the surgical procedure to place dental implants can take as little as half an hour for a single implant, osseointegration can take several months to fuse completely.
Dr. Yang and Dr. Lee of Foster City Oral Surgery Specialists make every effort to ensure their patients feel safe, comfortable, and informed. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Yang and Dr. Lee specialize in restoring their patients’ smiles with implant-based tooth restorations.

Many patients who are not candidates for other tooth replacement options may be candidates for dental implants. In general, patients who are in good enough health to undergo a minor dental procedure, such as tooth extraction, are healthy enough to receive dental implants. A bone grafting procedure may be necessary before receiving dental implants for some patients. Visit our Bone Grafting page to learn more.
With the right care, your dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime. Make sure to take care of them just like natural teeth: brush, floss, and see your dentist for regular checkups.
Due to your specific condition and customized treatment plan, your recovery period is unique to you. The average time for the titanium implant to integrate with the jaw bone is from 3 to 6 months. Many factors, including age, jaw bone health, lifestyle, and more, affect overall healing and recovery time.
Dental implants are considered a permanent tooth replacement solution and have the potential to last a lifetime. As such, they tend to cost more than other tooth replacement options. Several factors will determine the overall cost of your dental implants. We will consider the number of dental implants you need, other treatments necessary before receiving dental implants, your insurance coverage, and more. Your consultation appointment will be the best way to learn about your dental implant treatment and overall cost.
Your comfort during and after your procedure is a priority at Foster City Oral Surgery Specialists, but as with any surgical procedure, you can expect some discomfort. Before your dental implant procedure, your oral surgeon will discuss your options for anesthesia and may prescribe medications to manage any post-operative pain.
