Branemark introduced dental implants to North America in 1982, millions
of patients have benefited from the advantages of implant-supported
fixed restoration. Implant Dentistry not only provides comfort, ease,
effective and immediate restoration of occlusal function, but they
have also improved the esthetic appearance of our patients' smiles.
in using IDI Dental Implant over the many years have shown that both
patients and doctors cannot detect differences between dental implant
restorations and natural teeth.
Prosthodontists and periodontists can avoid frequent surgical procedures and
reduce the waiting period (shortening treatment time by 4 to 6 months) by placing
IDI Dental implants immediately after extracting unrestorable teeth. This procedure
not only can reduce the psychological distress from losing a tooth, but this
technique can also restore esthetics and occlusal function immediately. Success
rates of 99% for immediate implant placement have been found.
In many cases, immediately after IDI Dental Implant placement, the advantage
of IDI dental Implant fixture mount abutment and the ball screw allowed dentist
to take final impression if initial stability exceeds 45Ncm. Dentist can fabricate
provisional restoration immediately. Therefore, a provisional restoration can
be used for functional or non-functional loading if appropriate primary stability
and adequate occlusal loading can be achieved.
If the volume of remaining jaw bone is enough to house a wide or long implant
and appropriate primary stability and adequate occlusal loading can be achieved,
the patient may receive an implant restoration (temporary or permanent) and
may enjoy the benefits of eating and chewing on the same day (immediate functional
loading). However, if there is only a limited amount of jawbone remaining,
we still suggest a 4-6 month waiting period before a restoration is placed.
In aesthetic zone, dentist may provide a provisional restoration without loading
(Immediate non-functional loading).
Osteotome sinus lift was originally introduced by Dr. Summer
in 1994 and 1995. He published four articles regarding the
sinus lift method. His techniques
effectively increased the success rate of implant placement, which particularly
benefits patients who have lost their teeth and large amounts of jaw bone
due to periodontal disease. By applying new designed/ patented
IDI osteotome, we
can preserve and condense limited amounts of remaining bone. Implants can
be placed at the same time (within 10-20 minutes following
completion of the procedure).
In addition, this osteotome can effectively lift the maxillary sinus for
those who suffer from sinus pneumatization. The Osteotome technique
has helped many
of patients to avoid complicated bone grafts and open sinus surgeries (Caldwel-Luc
Approach) that may require much more extensive surgical procedures and
healing time before implants can be placed. In the past few years, we have
many exciting results; patients who received these services have had very
high success rate.
In the past many years IDI research and engineering team has successfully developed
the most advanced dental implant system-IDI Dental Implant System. Clinical
studies have shown close to 99% success rate. Mechanical studies meet ISO 14801
standards. Comparison studies show that IDI is a much stronger and more durable
than most other major brand dental Implants on the market.

Hung is specialized in the fields of prosthodontics and implant
Hung has successfully performed thousands of implant placements and restorations.
Many patients who have only minimal jaw bone available to anchor implants,
or those who have been told by other dental practitioners that implant
placement was not possible, have been successfully treated by Dr. Hung.
to excellence in the field, Dr. Hung is currently a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
Tina Sun, D.D.S., Periodontist
Dr. Tina Sun completed her DDS degree as well as her Periodontal and Implant Surgical training at the University
of Southern California School of Dentistry, where she currently
serves as a Clinical Assistant Professor. She is also presently
a member of the California Society of Periodontists and American Academy of Periodontology.
a Periodontist, Dr. Sun educates her patients on the importance of
periodontal health, as periodontics is the key and foundation to all
other aspects of dentistry. Without healthy gums, other fields of dentistry
would be impossible. Dr. Sun appreciates and understands that periodontal
surgery requires a fine combination of engineering skills, perceptions
of beauty, and problem solving abilities.
With great passion, Dr. Sun
carefully plans and carries out the treatment course for each
of her patients with the goal of creating beautiful and healthy gums.
Desire, dedication and devotion are her ideals. She has the
desire to serve; she will prove her dedication; and she
promises to devote herself to
learning and serving patients by helping them achieve maximum
oral health and beautiful gums.
