Why Doctor Yu is for You!
How do I care for my implants?
You will need to care for your implants just as you care for your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing are important to prevent the build-up of plaque. Regular dental cleanings and exams are still an important part of ensuring great oral health.
Is it painful to receive a dental implant?
With the advances of modern technology, most patients report feeling very little discomfort both during and after treatment. Our team is trained and certified to offer sedation with oral surgery, which provides a relaxed, comfortable experience during treatment.
How long will my implants last?
With proper care and treatment, your implants can last a lifetime, just like natural teeth.
What is sedation oral surgery?
Sedation oral surgery is a term used to describe the use of medication on a patient to relieve stress during a dental treatment. This medication is safe and effective and administered by trained and certified surgical professionals. It is used to help you enter a highly-relaxed state, providing a more positive surgery experience, even for patients who suffer from severe anxiety. We want you to feel safe and comfortable throughout your treatment and sedation dentistry can help achieve that.

Are dental implants right for me?
There are several factors that our doctor will consider before recommending dental implants. Some include:
- Adequate bone support to anchor the implant.
- Healthy gum tissue.
- Sinus and nerve location.
- Overall health, including any chronic illnesses.
In some cases, we may recommend advance treatment for your upper or lower jaw to enable you to have to bone support needed for implantation. As always, your treatment plan is created based on your specific needs and goals for your healthy smile.
Be sure to let us know about any medications you are taking during your consultation. Your health and safety are paramount.
