At Garden City Implant & Dental, we have the unique opportunity to spend time with patients and learn about their goals for their smiles. As a privately owned dental practice, we enjoy discussing all of your options with you and helping you make an informed choice that works best for you.

Both Dr Wong and Dr Khzam have extensive education, training and experience in implant dentistry and use the latest technology to assist them in achieving outstanding results for our patients.
- Single dental implants
- Full arch implants
- Implant-supported bridges and dentures
Benefits of Dental Implants
A dental implant replaces the entire tooth, including the root. The dental implant post is made of titanium and is designed to integrate and fuse with the jawbone. What that means for you is that the dental implant will provide the same benefits as a natural tooth.
- Keeps teeth from shifting
- Stable and durable
- Prevents bone loss
- Looks and functions like a real tooth
- Provides an anchor for dentures and bridges
- No dietary restrictions
Caring for single dental implants requires the same dedication as caring for natural teeth. Brushing, flossing and routine dental exams and cleanings will protect your teeth and your dentistry. Prevention is great smile insurance.
Dental Implant Treatment
Dental implant treatment requires precise planning. Dr James Wong has extensive education and training completing dental implant procedures. With his many years of experience, he improves patients’ smiles and oral health.
Oral Health Evaluation
Dr Wong will begin by evaluating your oral health and bone quality. Dental implants need a stable foundation of healthy bone to secure them in place.
To determine whether dental implants are recommended, a complete oral evaluation will be necessary, which includes:
- Physical examination
- Medical history
If additional treatments such as bone grafting or sinus augmentation are required, we will arrange them to make dental implant treatment possible.
Your comfort is our number one priority. The surgical placement of dental implants is a procedure that patients typically tolerate well. The mouth is resilient, and most patients report only mild discomfort, manageable with medication recommended by Dr James Wong or Dr Nabil Khzam.
You will receive detailed post-surgical recommendations to assist with healing.
Healing and Integration
The healing process is essential because this is the crucial time when the dental implant integrates with your natural bone over the course of about 3 to 6 months. Proper integration ensures the dental implant fully supports the load and force of chewing.
Dental Implant Crown
The dental implant crown looks and functions like a natural tooth. Made of durable porcelain, dental implant crowns will last many years with the proper care.
