Dental Implants

All-on-4 Implants

Dr. Macks' associate, Dr. Chung, is a certified Prosthodontist, who provides All-on-4 implant procedures. Dr. Chung works at Dr. Macks' Tacoma office on Fridays. Dr. Chung provides patients with options from a single implant to a complex full-mouth restoration. All-on-4 Implants provide a permanent, screw-retained replacement for the entire upper and/or lower set of teeth. It is a rehabilitation of the maxilla and mandible with fixed prosthesis allowing the best and highest success rate.

As a certified Prosthodontist, Dr. Chung offers fast, affordable tooth replacement. Dr. Chung is a graduate of the Seoul National University College of Dentistry, along with the University of Washington Dental School, where he completed a Master of Science in Dentistry with specialty certificate in Prosthodontics program.

He has spoken on multiple subjects in implant and prosthetic dentistry nationally and internationally to dental professionals and students. He is also serving as an outside expert reviewer for the implant journal, International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants.

Mini Implants

Dr. Macks has been offering Mini Dental Implants in his Tacoma, WA office for over 30 years. Mini Dental Implants offer patients a solution for smaller teeth or incisors. Also, this narrower implant may best serve patients who require stabilization of lower jaw dentures, pre-molar teeth or a missing tooth that was located in a narrow area.

Only a few dentists can perform this procedure effectively, and Dr. Alan Macks is one of those cosmetic dentists in Tacoma who can perform this service.

Here are some core differences between traditional implants and mini implants that Dr. Macks offers:

  • Mini Implants are approximately half the width of their traditional counterparts
  • The implant is not fully submerged during a narrow implant procedure
  • Should implant failure occur, the small size (that of a toothpick) means grafting is not necessary
  • Mini Implants are less costly
  • Mini Implants are solid though they do not contain a screw

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Macks and his staff are amazing. We stumbled across this office when my husband was having horrible tooth pain and needed emergency care. We called around to numerous dentists and left several messages (it was after hours about 9 pm). Dr. Macks was the only one to ever call us back, he wrote a prescription to help him through the night then scheduled him first thing in morning. They very good care of my husband at this appointment and we knew we'd be life long patients! This was about 5 years ago and we have been going ever since. We receive superior care every time we go. They are so friendly and kind . Several members of our family have started seeing Dr. Macks as well. "

"I have been going to this Dental office for over 10 years now and I would never go anywhere else. The entire office staff is friendly and professional and your personal dental hygienist will greet you in the waiting room with a smile every appointment. I use to loathe going to the dentist but this staff makes a pleasant experience every visit. I have referred my friends and family to Dr Macks and will definitely continue to do so."

"If you are looking for a dentist, call Dr. Macks now. He is by far the most capable and humane dentist I have ever visited. He did more for me in one appointment than other dentists have done for me over my whole life. He is helping me get my teeth where they need to be faster and better than I knew was even possible. And he can do almost everything in his beautiful, comfortable office. His staff are wonderful too. He is getting very busy so appointments are precious. Going to Dr. Macks was one of the best decisions I"ve made with my dental care, now all of my family goes to him. This recommendation is meant for Dr. Macks and not for the other dentists that practice in his office."
