Dental Implants in Spring Hill, FL

Sometimes when a tooth isn’t restorable, we are left with no alternative but to extract the tooth. An implant is used to replace the missing tooth without having to drill on the adjacent teeth.

Example A demonstrates the similarity between a natural tooth and an implant. The root of the tooth is fixed in the jaw bone and the top of the natural tooth has been prepared to receive a crown. Similarly, the implant is fixed within the jaw bone and replaces the root of the natural tooth. The post attached to the implant is similar to the top of the prepared tooth. It too, is ready to receive a crown.

The process of making a crown on a natural tooth and an implant is very similar. Impressions are required of the mouth and models are made, upon which the crowns are fabricated. Crowns on natural teeth or implants can be made of metal and/or porcelain, and are fabricated to replace the size, shape and color of the natural teeth. Example B demonstrates how the crowns fit over the prepared natural tooth and over the implant post in the same way. The crown on the natural tooth is cemented in place. On the implant it is either screwed or cemented in place. An implant supported crown is almost like having your natural tooth back!

Example C

The X-ray image, Example C shows the implant positioned in the jaw bone. A post will be attached to the implant, upon which the final crown will be placed to replace the missing tooth.

The final crown (cap) has been fabricated and cemented onto the post which is attached to the implant. A small bonded restoration was also placed on the other front tooth to provide a balanced esthetic result. This implant supported crown provides a beautiful aesthetic replacement for the missing tooth.

Patient Testimonials

WHAT OTHER PATIENTS, LIKE YOU, HAVE TO SAY

I am currently under treatment with Dr. Wise-Scheurermann. The entire staff at ACKLEY Dental is extremely professional and very empathetic. I was able to schedule my first appointment within 24 hours, and the staff was apologetic as they were unable to schedule me for the same day. (I am currently undergoing chemotherapy and I had a front tooth break off at the gum line. I called the office late in the afternoon when it happened and was given an appointment for the following day.) I called the office when I arrived, and they came out to the car to screen me. I found their COVID-19 screening to be thorough. I was taken to the exam room and was seen by the hygienist. Unfortunately I do not recall her name but she was wonderful. Dr. Wise-Scheurermann came in and examined me and we discussed the treatment plan. I must say Dr. Wise-Scheurermann was wonderful! She immediately put me at ease (I am terrified of the dentist). I would highly recommend Ackley Dental, especially Dr. Wise-Scheurermann and her team!

Unbelievable! Not just the excellent service, but the results of two short visits. I had some dental work last year and was given a "flipper" to use while my mouth healed. Unfortunately, the flipper was stepped on and was not longer able to use. I visited Ackley last Friday , and mold was made and yesterday I went back and it was adjusted for my mouth. Dr. Ackley was the best experience I had with dental work in the last two years. The flipper is the best fit! Did not even have to remove it to eat! Ackley Dental was recommended to me and my husband by a friend. We both highly recomment to anyone the services and expertise of Ackley Dental Group.
