Dental implants are beneficial in preventing cavities and gum disease and preserve a healthy jawbone.

Treatment Timeline

What to Expect at Every Step

Alexandria dental implants


Step 1

During your placement appointment, a small opening in the gums and jaw will be made to place the implant. Then, the area will be cleaned and sutured shut to encourage proper healing.

Healing & Osseointegration

Step 2

After the implant surgery, you will need up to two weeks to heal. However, it may take up to six months for the implant to bond to your bone structure in a process called osseointegration.

Applying the Restoration

Step 3

A dental implant restoration will be attached to your implant to complete the restoration. While your implant heals and bonds with your jaw tissue, Alexandria dentist Dr. Han will take images and impressions of your teeth during your follow-ups, and begin building your dental implant restoration during this time.

“AMAZING 6/5 STARS... New to the area and was having wisdom tooth pain. Dr. Han was extremely caring and didn't rush me to get an extraction. He made sure I felt good so I could keep him updated. Obviously will go back for my extraction soon and I'm glad I found them. Update: Had two of my wisdom teeth extracted. Getting an appointment was fast and they have convenient hours. I was extremely nervous but Dr. Han is AMAZING. The procedure was so fast and you could tell he is very good at what he does. My recovery was less than 24 hours, with minimal pain. Went back for the suture removal and it is almost completely healed only a week later. ”

I am never one to leave reviews, but this one is beyond deserving. Dr. Han and his assistant went above and beyond my expectations. I suffer from severe anxiety when it comes to doctors because of past experiences. However, Dr. Han's jokes and literally telling me everything he was doing before he did it made this a wonderful visit. I left feeling great and not anxious. #officiallyhavemypermanentdoc

“I am SUPER nervous about going to the dentist, but this place is FABULOUS. The staff was friendly, gentle, and understanding, and Dr. Han was incredible. I had my first crown put in. He was knowledgeable about everything from which numbing agents were best to use (I've had reactions to all of them except the one he used), which crown material to use with zero mercury in them, and understood even the homeopathic pain remedies I prefer to use. Everyone there has a great bedside manner and Dr. Han really helped put me at ease with his humor and positive attitude. Fantastic office all around!”

Meredith P.

“5/5 stars! Dr. Han is the best dentist we have ever seen - of the 35+ dentists who have treated us in the past 30 years )we were both in the military)! We are following Dr. Han from his previous dental office over to his new practice - one that will be entirely his own. So excited for the care we expect to receive there... Dr. Han is just that good! Friendly, calming, listens and is highly competent. We even recommended him to my parents, who plan to sign up once Dr. Han's practice opens!”

Camilla B.

Dr. Han and his staff were amazing. He performed a thorough examination. He was up front and I appreciate him for that. Dr. Han has a great bedside manner and really cares for his patients. THANK YOU, Dr. Han!

Hermenigilda E.

Dr. Han is extremely kind and highly skilled as is his assistant. I was nervous due to prior bad experiences with other practices, but upon meeting him, I immediately was put at ease. He fixed my issue, and in doing so, gave me relief from years of discomfort and inflammation.

M. Warco

Dr. Han was phenomenal. My previous dental experiences had been awful and left me with severe PTSD. With Dr. Han I've never felt more reassured or in capable hands. I was talked through every little thing and assured over and over through any process I went through. Permanent dentist office for life.

Mary P.

I'm very pleased with the results of my front tooth dental crown. Thank you, Dr. Han, you did an amazing job it looks so natural and I feel pretty! Your kindness and honesty makes a positive difference.

Mary F.

Always love working with Dr. Han - he is a top-notch dentist, master of his craft, and is always very knowledgeable, never patronizing. I appreciate the fact that he doesn't try to upsell me on unnecessary treatments or procedures, and I can always opt out of things like fluoride if needed. But rest assured, he embraces a mindset of proactive preventive care.

Frequently Asked Questions

Permanently Fix Your Smile

What is a single tooth implant?

Single implants are used to replace a single missing tooth, and are usually restored with a dental crown.

How are dental implants made?

The implants themselves are typically made of titanium. This ensures that it can integrate with the bone and the immune system does not treat it like a foreign object.

How long will my dental implant last?

With proper dental care and regular check ups, many dental implants can last a lifetime with an average lifespan of 25 years. The crown, however, can last 10 to 15 years before a replacement is needed.

Do Dental Implants Hurt?

The thought of dental implant surgery can be intimidating for many, and it's only natural to wonder about potential pain. However, the process is typically less daunting than most imagine. At Kenmore Family Dental Care, Dr. Heejo Han and his team prioritize patient comfort and safety above all else.

During the procedure, you'll be under local anesthesia, which numbs the area completely. This means you won't feel any pain during the surgery. Post-surgery, any discomfort is usually manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers and subsides within a few days to a week.

Remember, everyone's experience with pain is personal and varies. Rest assured, our team will be with you every step of the way, addressing any concerns and ensuring your comfort throughout the process.

Am I A Good Candidate For Dental Implants?

Dental implants are widely recognized as the gold standard for replacing missing teeth due to their durability, functionality, and natural appearance. However, not everyone is an ideal candidate for this treatment.

Good candidates for dental implants typically have healthy gums, sufficient bone density to support the implant, and are in overall good health. Those with chronic conditions like diabetes or heart disease, or who smoke, may need to be evaluated on an individual basis.

It's also important that candidates are committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Implants require the same care as natural teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups.

If you're considering dental implants in Alexandria, Dr. Heejo Han would be more than happy to assess your situation and discuss your options. Every patient is unique, and we strive to provide personalized care that suits your specific needs.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

The cost of dental implants can vary greatly depending on several factors, including the number of teeth being replaced, the type of implant, and whether any additional procedures (like bone grafts) are needed.

While it's true that dental implants can be more expensive upfront than other tooth replacement options, they are a long-term investment in your oral health. Implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper care, making them a cost-effective solution in the long run.

At Kenmore Family Dental Care, we understand that cost is a significant factor in your decision. We're committed to transparency and will provide a detailed cost breakdown before any treatment begins. We also offer various financing options and work with most insurance providers to make your dental care as affordable as possible.

Remember, investing in your oral health now can prevent more costly treatments down the line. Dental implants not only restore your smile but also your confidence and quality of life.

Can Dental Implants Fail? What Are The Risks?

While dental implants have a high success rate, there are some risks associated with the procedure, as with any surgery. These risks include infection at the implant site, injury or damage to surrounding structures, nerve damage, and sinus problems when upper jaw implants protrude into sinus cavities. However, the risk of implant failure can be significantly reduced by following good oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups. Dr. Heejo Han and the team at Kenmore Family Dental Care take every precaution to minimize risks and ensure the highest success rate for your implants.
