Dr. Kim does Complimentary Implant Consultations.
Full-Service Dental Implant Treatment
We’ll replace one, multiple or all of your broken-down or missing teeth with beautiful, stable and durable new teeth.
Dr. Kim and our team of dental specialists are experts at saving teeth. In cases where teeth are truly beyond rescue or repair, Dr. Kim and Dr. Ruprecht will replace them with stable and durable new teeth using state-of-the-art dental implant treatment.
Dental implants are considered the modern miracle for tooth replacement. They act as artificial tooth roots, supporting one or more replacement teeth—and they can even be used to replace an entire arch of teeth. Because implant-supported teeth are anchored to a very strong and stable foundation, they feel and function just like natural teeth.
Dr. Deborah Ruprecht is a highly skilled specialist in implant surgery. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Henry Kim is an expert in the creation and placement of aesthetic, durable replacement teeth. Even if you have a complex case, you will be able to receive all of your treatment under our roof.
