A More Permanent and Lasting Solution for Tooth Loss
Having a missing tooth is more common than people imagine—over 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. Without replacing missing teeth, bone loss can occur in the jaw and cause severe problems such as shifting teeth, an improper bite and even affect your systemic health. In order to prevent these problems from arising, dental implants are a solution to keep your smile and health intact. Dr. John Cherry located in Sun City, Florida, has extensive training and experience in dental implants and offers single, multiple and full arch dental implants to make your smile whole again.
Around 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth.

What is a Dental Implant
Dental implants are a tooth replacement option that act and look just like a natural tooth. A good candidate for this replacement has enough bone in the jaw to support an implant. If more bone is needed, bone grafting can add the sufficient amount. Implants are a great option to replace one tooth, multiple missing teeth, or can even be made to replace an entire arch of teeth. A dental implant includes the following:
• A titanium implant that is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth
• An abutment that attaches to the new crown
• A custom-made, natural looking crown

Dr. Cherry offers many options to assist dental implants:
Sinus LiftIn order to place dental implants, adequate bone density is required to hold the implant post securely. In some instances, you may not have enough bone in the upper arch below your sinuses, to support implants. This can be the cause of bone loss from periodontal disease, bone deterioration, or even large sinus membranes. If this is the case, a sinus lift may be appropriate to add bone where it is most needed to allow for dental implants.
Bone GraftThe purpose of the bone in your jaw is to support your teeth. For those who are missing teeth for any reason, including periodontal disease, trauma or extraction, their jawbone is not being stimulated and the bone begins to recede. With insufficient bone, your bite will begin to collapse, your facial appearance will change and you will no longer be a candidate for dental implants. To solve this, bone grafting is used to restore lost bone to the jaw and create adequate density to hold dental implants.
