St. John’s County implants
Missing teeth are unsightly, especially if there at or near the front of your mouth. There are other drawbacks when you don’t have a full set of teeth anymore, including discomfort from shifting teeth, and a possibly misaligned occlusion (bite). At Dental Doctors of Florida, we offer St. John’s County implants to fill up that empty space that used to contain your teeth.
Fixed bridges and removable partial dentures are good solutions, but not ideal. You either have to sacrifice tooth material from neighboring teeth, or use messy adhesive that is not always reliable in keeping your prosthetic teeth in place when you chew or speak. That’s because those older restorations start above the gum line. Our St. John’s County implants go beneath the gum line. In fact, they are anchored into your jaw, much in the same way that your natural teeth are. The process of getting them begins with an examination and consultation. You have to be tested to determine if you are a good candidate, which means having healthy gums and a thick jaw bone to hold the implant, among other points of eligibility. The first part of our St. John’s County implants is the titanium post, surgically placed in your jaw. Over the next few months, your jaw grows around the post. Eventually, the post is fused to your jaw for permanence. It is then that a tooth-colored crown, for which impressions are previously taken, is cemented to the top of the post. The result is a new tooth that looks and feels like a real one. Best of all, it even performs like one, giving you full confidence to speak, laugh, and chew. And with proper care, you can get a lifetime of use out of them.

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
