Are your decaying or missing teeth causing you physical pain or emotional distress? Has eating your favorite foods become difficult? Are you hiding your smile from public view? If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, full mouth dental implants can be your life-changing solution. With years of training and hands-on experience in implant dentistry, endodontics, cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics, Dr. Kwansoo Lee is uniquely equipped to provide a full range of comprehensive dental treatments, and he has successfully placed well over 1,150 implants! Your new teeth will transform your smile and oral health, plus they will boost your confidence. The best news is that we offer immediate-load All-on-4® dental implants in Spanaway, WA, which means that you can leave our office showing off your new, fully functional set of teeth … on the same day of your surgery!
From traditional dentures to implant supported dentures to full mouth dental implants, we offer teeth replacement options for any situation regarding missing or damaged teeth. Traditional dentures may cost less, but they are often uncomfortable and do not restore the full function of your teeth. A mid-tier option is implant supported dentures, which are secured in place by two dental implants placed in your jaw, giving them more stability than dentures. Finally, full mouth dental implants offer the natural-looking esthetics and comfort you seek, for complete satisfaction that will last for decades!
If you want full functionality, improved oral health and a beautiful smile, full mouth dental implants are the best and longest-lasting option, considered by specialists and dentists across the country as the “gold standard” in teeth replacement. All-on-4 implants are securely attached to your jawbone to provide you with superior functionality and esthetic appeal. Dr. Lee can replace all of your teeth with a temporary prosthesis, composed of high-quality 3D-printed resin, on the day of your dental implant surgery. We place great emphasis on patient education. At your consultation, Dr. Lee will go over the pros and cons of traditional dentures, implant supported dentures, and full mouth dental implants in great detail. We want you to make well-informed decisions and choose the best option to suit your smile goals!
At your initial consultation, Dr. Lee will take the time to listen to your smile goals, address your concerns and answer your questions. Our team will determine if you are a good candidate for full mouth dental implants by visually assessing your current oral health condition and taking digital scans of your mouth. If you need preliminary treatments for oral conditions like bone loss or gum disease, we will design a streamlined treatment plan customized to your needs. If you wish, you can look at “before and after” photos of some of our patients, so you can see their dramatic full mouth dental implant transformations. Our compassionate dental team will ensure that you understand your treatment plan, and our patient coordinator will outline the costs and help you determine the financial option that works best for your budget. We offer a host of financial solutions to make dental implants affordable for you. If you decide to move forward with your implant treatment, we will schedule your surgery and Dr. Lee will create your personalized surgical plan, which will include exact angle, depth and precise placement for successful results that will exceed your expectations!
On the day of your fully guided surgery with Hiossen® implants, a member of our team will escort you to your private room, remaining with you throughout your procedure to provide you with comfort and support. We offer IV sedation, as well as oral sedation and nitrous oxide, to eliminate your discomfort and dental anxiety. Once your sedation is administered and you’re in a deep state of relaxation, Dr. Lee will complete any necessary tooth extractions as he closely monitors your comfort, as our goal is to provide you with a pain-free procedure. Utilizing fully guided placement techniques for precision and accuracy, he will secure your implants to your jawbone and skillfully place your high-quality temporary prosthesis, composed of appealing and completely functional materials. Be prepared for transformative results—many of our patients say that they just can’t stop smiling!
We will ask you to visit our office about two weeks after your surgery to show off your smile, and also so we can assess your healing progress and satisfaction. Dr. Lee will also talk with you about the placement of your final prosthesis, and we will schedule your final appointment.
Your healing phase should last between three and six months. This period of time allows your dental implants to fuse with your jawbone, a painless process known as osseointegration. During this process, you will enjoy the look and function of your temporary prosthesis while you fully heal. When your final zirconia prosthesis is finished by the lab, Dr. Lee will place it and put the final touches on your smile. With proper oral hygiene and regular professional cleanings, your new set of teeth will last for years to come!
