Implant dentist in St. Augustine
Today there are many different uses for dental implants. Dental implants can be used to replace individual teeth, or full-size and mini implants can be used for denture retention. If you are interested in learning how dental implants can solve your tooth loss problem, you will want to come to our dental practice, Dental Doctors of Florida, to see our implant dentist in St. Augustine.
When you visit our dental practice to get dental implants for denture retention, you will be seen by our implant dentist in St. Augustine, either Dr. Christine Trunk or Dr. Merlin P. Ohmer. If you have many missing teeth, implant-supported full dentures can be used to replace them. The dental implants will not only hold the dentures securely in place, but the dental implant roots, will also help to keep your jawbone healthier. Both full-size and mini dental implants can be used for denture retention. Our implant specialists will talk to you about the different treatment options that are available to you, given your individual situation. Implant-supported dentures are made to be very long-lasting. They also are more comfortable than conventional dentures, and also will enable you to have a more natural bite and chewing ability. The first step of getting full dental implants to support your dentures is to have several dental implants surgically inserted into your jawbone so that only a few dental implants will be needed to hold your dentures. There will then be healing time during which the jawbone bonds with the dental implant roots. There are different ways to anchor your dentures to the dental implants, which can be permanently placed or made to be removable. Again, there are different options in different situations, but each case is different; our dentist will discuss your specific options with you. Mini dental implants have greatly reduced the cost of getting implant-retain dentures, and they are available to just about all patients, regardless of the thickness of the jawbone.

St. Augustine FL dental implants
If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you should visit us at Dental Doctors of Florida. At our dental practice you can get St. Augustine FL dental implants, or bridges or dentures to replace missing teeth.
When you come to our dental practice to get St. Augustine FL dental implants, or other types of tooth replacement, our dentist will carefully assess your individual situation and talk to you about the different options that are available to you. Today, dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement method because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. However, dental implants may not be the right solution for you. At our dental practice we certainly do not believe in a one-size-fits-all tooth replacement solution. Our dentist will first determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants, if this is the tooth replacement method that you desire. In order to be a good candidate, your jawbone must be thick enough and healthy enough to withstand oral surgery, and to allow the dental implant root to firmly fuse to it. If this is not the case, you will need to get a bone grafting procedure first. These considerations must be taken into account to determine whether or not you want to get dental implants. However, dental implants are a great tooth replacement method because they are a permanent tooth replacement solution that will most likely last for a lifetime. Dental implants look just like regular teeth, and allow you to eat anything you want in total comfort. However, the entire dental implant procedure will take many months, and does involve oral surgery. Dental implants also are more expensive than bridges or dentures. All of these considerations need to be taken into account when determining what will work best for you. Our dentist will be happy to answer all of your questions so that together you can determine which type of tooth replacement you would like to receive.

St. John’s County implants
If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may be thinking about getting dental implants. At our dental practice, Dental Doctors of Florida, our top-notch dentists, Dr. Christine Trunk and Dr. Marlon P. Ohmer, can provide you with St. John’s County implants.
If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced and you want to get St. John’s County implants, our dentist will be able to provide the service for you. They first will need to assess whether or not you are a good candidate for dental implants. In order to successfully get dental implants, your jawbone will need to be healthy and thick enough so that it can hold the dental implants and fully recover from the dental implant surgery. In most cases, if the patient does not have a healthy jawbone, they will be able to get a bone graft which will make their jawbone healthy enough for the surgery. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for the procedure, our dentists will surgically insert a titanium dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There will then be a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone will fully heal, and the titanium root will completely fuse to the jawbone. Once our dentist determines that the healing period has completed, a porcelain crown will be permanently attached to the top portion of the dental implant. At this point your beautiful new dental implant is complete and you will be able to once again speak, smile, and eat in total comfort and confidence. When well taken care of with a great at-home dental cleaning regimen of brushing and flossing, and with periodic dental cleanings, it is likely that your dental implants will last you for a lifetime
