Like with any surgical procedure, there are associated risks. However, Dr. Hua and our friendly team are dental implant experts, and we use modern technology to ensure the process is quick, painless, and precise. 

Some of the risks include infection and injury to surrounding structures, which is why it’s crucial you trust a qualified, experienced, and skillful dentist to place your implants. Dr. Hua specializes in dental implant placement, and you can rest assured you are in the most capable and caring hands. Dr. Hua and his dental team are friendly, caring, and highly trained in dental implant dentistry. 

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants permanently replace missing tooth roots. The implants are placed in the jaw, which anchors the abutment teeth so you can enjoy a full and natural-looking smile without worrying about slippage or shrinkage, like with dentures.

Dental implants are very reliable, easy to maintain, and long-lasting—they can even last for a lifetime if well cared for! At Modern Dentistry of St. Cloud, we customize dental implants to fit your one-of-a-kind smile and complement your skin tone, hair color, eye color, and facial features.

Our dental implants not only look natural, but they also feel and function just like natural teeth. You won’t even remember you have them! 

What Happens During the Dental Implant Procedure?

Once Dr. Hua determines if you’re a good candidate for dental implants, we will schedule your procedure. The whole process will take a few dental appointments and many weeks of healing.

Before the procedure, Dr. Hua will make sure you are comfortable and fully numb, so you don’t experience any pain or discomfort. He will then surgically place the implant in the jaw. The healing process for this first step can take several weeks.

Once the implant naturally fuses to the jawbone creating a supportive foundation for your replacement teeth, Dr. Hua will ensure your crowns are perfectly shaped and shaded to your satisfaction.

Finally, he will gently place the replacement teeth to the implants, giving you a complete and beautiful smile. In a matter of months, you can have a permanent set of new teeth that will allow you to eat, chew, bite, smile, and laugh with all the comfort and confidence a natural smile can give.
