Meet Our Implant Specialist…
Dr. Han Lyu
Dr. Han Lyu earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from UMDNJ–New Jersey Dental School as a general dentist in May 2012. After graduation, Dr. Lyu worked as an associate general dentist which allowed him to become proficient in all aspects of dentistry including oral surgery, root canal therapy, gum infection therapy, cosmetic dentistry, and more.
However, Dr. Lyu discovered that he had a higher calling in dentistry beyond doing routine fillings and other general dental work. That calling was to become a specialist in Implant Dentistry as well as treating complex cosmetic dentistry and denture cases as a prosthodontist. After careful consideration, Dr. Lyu chose to earn his specialty degree from Columbia University taking world class implant courses under one of dentistry’s top educators. Dr. Lyu received his Masters of Science (MS) degree in prosthodontics in June 2015.
Dr. Lyu says, “Although I’m still a young dentist with a short career, I can truly tell you that I enjoy dentistry and strive to be better each and every day. I take a great pride in patient care and love interacting with patients!” His beautiful and natural smile makeover transformations simply speak for themselves but he has lots of photos in his smile gallery to show how he changes lives. Since Dr. Lyu joined our practice in February 2016, he has been consistently complimented on his bedside manner and his keen ability to listen to patients’ wants and needs when planning a smile makeover or restoring someone’s smile back to health. We are honored to have him apart of our dental team!
About Dental Implants
Dental implants replace tooth roots, creating a strong and stable foundation for replacement teeth. The implants are made of biocompatible titanium, which fuses with the jawbone. After fusion, or osseointegration, is complete, abutment posts connect the implant to a replacement crown.
Implant Supported Bridge
If three or more teeth in a row are missing, an implant supported bridge is a great solution. An implant at either end supports the full run of replacement teeth, providing a functional and aesthetic solution that does not damage healthy adjacent teeth.
Implant Supported Dentures
If a full arch of teeth is missing, implant supported dentures are highly recommended over traditional dentures. Removable dentures snap onto as few as two implants, providing dramatically enhanced strength and functionality. Fixed dentures are permanently attached with a handful of implants, and look and function just like natural teeth.
Full Arch with Only 4 Implants
Using just 4 implants, a full arch of upper or lower teeth can be permanently attached. This same-day procedure avoids the months of denture wearing that are required by older dental implant solutions. You can have your existing teeth pulled, your implants placed, and your full arch of replacement teeth attached all in a single visit.
