What Is a Periodontist?
A periodontist is an expert in everything related to your periodontal (gum) health. That includes the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease. In addition to ensuring that your periodontal health stays in check, periodontists specialize in the placement, maintenance, and repair of dental implants.
At Jacksonville Dental Specialists, Dr. Aguila is our periodontist providing expert dental implant care. They have decades of collective experience — and Dr. Aguila and prosthodontist Dr. Nawrocki work hand in hand to build customized treatment plans to help you enjoy high quality, long lasting tooth replacement. With a team like this, patients really can’t go wrong when they visit Jacksonville Dental Specialists for their tooth replacement.
Procedure for Dental Implants
Dental implants require extreme precision for success, and periodontists put their experience and training to use to ensure that the dental implants are maximally successful. During the preparation phase, Dr. Aguila will asses the health of your jawbone, the remaining natural teeth, and your gums. At Jacksonville Dental Specialists, we make use of the cone beam CT scanner to capture a comprehensive look at your teeth and oral structures.
With in-depth information captured by the CBCT scanner, Dr. Aguila places dental implants precisely where they should be for lasting success. Over a period of three to six months, the dental implants heal together with the jaw bone. You will return to our office for the final restoration of the dental implants after full healing has occurred. Dental implants can support a crown, bridge, or complete denture.
