The dental implant field has expanded rapidly in the last ten years. With this growth many implant systems (companies) have also been started to take advantage of this growing market. After careful evaluation of all of the dental implant systems available Dr. Kang, Dr. Suzuki, Dr. Liu and Dr. Sato have agreed that the Nobel Biocare Dental Implant Systems are the best researched, most studied, and most predictable for their patients.
As a complete dental implant system, Dr. Kang has advised this company on the development of several products or suggested improvements to existing products based on his working “inside/out” knowledge of the implant system. Dr. Kang has been working with the Nobel Biocare Dental Implant System since 2002 and Dr. Suzuki since 2006. Both doctors have completed research related to implant dentistry during their respective residency programs and have presented their findings at national meetings. Combined, they have placed over 3,000 dental implants with a greater than 99.5% success rate over that period of time. Dr. Kang is generally considered one of the most prolific dental implant surgeons in the northwest region of the United States, which includes Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. With an annual rate of over 600 placements per year since 2007, his expertise has been rewarded with Diamond Level Partnership with Nobel Biocare and Diplomate Status with the International Congress of Oral Implantology.
In addition to the production of dental implants, Nobel Biocare is also a pioneer in the fields of guided surgery (navigation), Computer Aided Design (CAD), and manufacturing of dental implant components for individual patient use. Dr. Kang’s close partnership with Kymata Dental Arts, Nobel Biocare, and his referral base have been used as a model by Nobel Biocare trying to duplicate this efficient model in other markets in the country. The efficient approach utilized by Dr. Kang, Dr. Suzuki, Dr. Liu, Dr. Sato, Nobel Biocare, and their partner lab allows for their patients to receive absolute premium dental quality through all phases (surgical, laboratory, and restorative) of treatment.
Dental Implants are permanent replacement tooth roots. Patients may benefit from the placement of a single implant or up to twenty-eight implants to replace all of their missing teeth. Often times a combination of implants and dentures or implants and bridges may also be suitable to replace teeth for patients missing one, two or all of their teeth. Dr. Kang, Dr. Suzuki, Dr. Liu and Dr. Sato are experts in the field of dental implants. Both have been selected as “Top Dentists” for the Periodontal and Dental Implant categories in the field of dentistry, and in Dr. Kang’s case four years in a row.
