Dental Implant Services to Rejuvenate Your Smile

We Offer Permanent Solutions that Look Like Your Natural Teeth

Are you facing the challenge of one or more missing teeth? Do you need a damaged tooth replaced? Dental implant services can help!

You may think dentures or bridges are your only option for cosmetic dentistry solutions. While these treatment options offer terrific results for many people, you could be an ideal candidate for a state of the art dental implant.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small metal “roots” that are placed in your jaw bone where your tooth root once was. They are placed just beneath your gum line. The bone heals around this dental implant post, securing it in place. Dr. Perry then attaches a dental crown or a prosthetic tooth to the implant. This provides a permanent solution that functions and looks exactly like a natural tooth.

Immediate Implants

Depending on your unique needs, you may even be able to receive immediate implants. This typically happens when you need to have one or more teeth removed due to periodontal disease or injury. We may be able to place dental implants immediately after your extraction procedure. If you aren’t able to receive immediate implants, it may still be possible to receive immediate implant dentures. This means you could be fitted for a denture prosthesis to begin wearing immediately after tooth extraction. This lets you maintain your smile while you await your permanent dental implants.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Dental implants may also be used to support dentures that replace missing teeth. If you are missing many teeth but your jawbone is strong enough to support implants, an implant supported denture or partial dentures may be the option you need. Unlike traditional dentures, this is a type of overdenture is attached to and supported by dental implants. It is made to look like natural teeth.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants and Implant Treatment?

Dental implants have revolutionized the replacement of missing teeth. They provide an exciting option for patients in need of replacements ranging from one tooth implant to a full mouth. Here are a few of the benefits you get with this treatment option:

  • Permanence
  • Natural Appearance
  • Safe for Adjacent Teeth
  • Ease of Care
  • Jawbone Stability and Prevention of Bone Loss

Dental implants, crowns or prosthetic teeth offer the longest-lasting solution to tooth loss. This is because the implants fuse with the jawbone, mimicking a tooth root and actually becoming part of the jaw.

Implants sit below the gum line, with only a crown or prosthetic tooth visible on top. Crowns and prosthetics are made with tooth-colored materials that mimic the look of natural teeth. This means you never have to worry about dental implants appearing artificial.

Some tooth replacement options rely on the adjacent teeth to stabilize and support the replacement. Bridges, for example, require support from the adjacent natural teeth and can weaken them over time. Dental implants have no negative impact on nearby teeth.

Implants require regular brushing and flossing, but they will never decay. They can last a lifetime with proper care. Gum disease can be a concern, but regular dental cleanings and exams can prevent this threat. This ensures your dental implants remain in good condition.

When you lose a tooth, the bone beneath it becomes vulnerable and can even begin to melt away. This happens when it loses the stimulation a tooth naturally provides. This can cause a prematurely aged look. Dental implants provide needed stimulation to the bone, making the jawbone more stable.

Dental Implants, Bone Grafting

Are you suffering from bone loss in the area of your jaw where a single tooth or multiple teeth are missing? You may need a bone graft procedure prior to placement of a dental implant. In a bone graft for dental implants procedure, a state of the art bone grafting material is placed on the vulnerable portion of your jaw.

This is to encourage new bone growth that will be strong enough to support an implant. It may take several months for enough new bone to grow. However, the timeline will vary depending upon your unique needs. It is important to wait until your jaw is strong enough for a dental implant procedure so the treatment will be successful.

Dental Implant Services: Dental Implant Restoration

While we do our best to create long-lasting prosthetics, dental implants may need to be restored or replaced. If you’ve had implants placed in the past and they have sustained damage, like chipping or discoloration, our dental services include working with you to craft a restored dental implant. We ensure your new implant will stand the test of time. As a highly-trained dental professional, Dr. Perry is pleased to offer implant solutions like this to assist patients in regaining a confident smile.

Dr. Perry and his staff are wonderful!! I've had everything from basic cleanings to major dental work done here and every experience has been fantastic. It's clear that my comfort is a top priority for them. Despite being young and having good dental hygiene, my teeth have always been a problem, one issue after the other - mostly due to bad dental work from previous dentists. However, after working with Dr. Perry and his team the past few years i feel like i've finally gotten my teeth back to health and in tip top shape. He really is a great dentist. I also don't dread going to the dentist like I used to. The staff are SO warm and friendly. Cannot recommend PV Family Dentistry enough!

Went to see Dr Perry after I was not satisfied with a filling by another dentist. After that filling I needed a root canal and in turn needed a crown. The main reason I came to this practice is that Dr Perry is also a prosthadontist ( basically the experts in cosmetics like crowns). The entire staff is beyond polite and friendly!! Kristie, Dr Perry’s assistant saw me both for the temporary and permanent crown appointments and was integral in the process. Kristie was extremely skilled and awesomely friendly! Dr Perry is a master at his craft and made sure my permanent crown felt and looked amazing! Great guy indeed!! He had wonderful bedside manner and is incredibly knowledgeable. I would recommend his practice to anyone looking for superb care!

Another OUTSTANDING experience at my Dentist office! Ponte Vedra Family Dentistry is by far the very BEST dentist office in Ponte Vedra and the Jacksonville, FL area! You must go there! I give them my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION as everyone and everything is fantastic!! The professional office staff is superb, welcoming, attentive, helpful and accommodating to your needs. The hygienists, especially Morgan, who by the way is an artist with the teeth cleaning water pick and has a very light yet effective touch polishing, etc., are pros and will make your pearly whites feel exceptional! Dr. Perry is top-notch, caring and extremely knowledgeable, taking time to explain anything needed to ensure you fully understand and are confident about a suggestion or recommendation he offers. I am extremely satisfied, so much so, that I have been promoting Ponte Vedra Family Dentistry to my family and friends, even if they don’t need a new dentist office. . . 6 stars out of 5…trust me!! I actually look forward to going to this dentist office!! Thank you, Dr. Perry and team!!!

Dr Perry and his staff at Ponte Vedra Family Dentistry are fantastic. Scheduling is a breeze, appointments are ontime and Dr Perry is a perfectionist. Dr Perry took the time at my most recent visit to listen and advise regarding some other medical issues that came up between visits with some good advice moving forward. He always calls the evening after a procedure to check if everything is ok.

Ponte Vedra Family Dentistry is by far the best dentist in town!! I was not a patient of Ponte Vedra Family Dentistry (I didn't have a dentist in town as I have only been living here a short while), but I was heavily pregnant and my tooth broke (not just chipped, but half of my tooth broke off). I called Ponte Vedra Family Dentistry and within a few hours I had an appointment with Dr. Perry, I was completely surprised that I would be able to get an appointment that quickly, especially considering I was a new patient. The ladies I spoke with on the phone/at the Front Desk were unbelievably friendly, accomodating and helpful. Tammy, who works very closely with Dr. Perry took great care of me and made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. Dr. Perry is a true professional, he is extremely good at what he does and he runs a fine practice!!! When I met Dr. Perry he was very down to earth, he was caring and explained the different options and procedure to me (as I was heavily pregnant I couldn't have x-rays or certain anesthesia). Throughout the process he made sure I understood what he was doing and that it was safe for me. Dr Perry's wife was pregnant at the time and he said to me "I wouldn't do/recommend anything to you that I wouldn't to my wife" which was very reassuring. As my tooth broke off so low to the gum/nerve Dr. Perry recommended having a root canal to prevent any pain, I literally went straight from Ponte Vedra Family Dentistry to see the specialist who performed the root canal, talk about being efficient and knowing the right people!! I could not have been happier with Dr Perry's recommendation, they did a great job and I came back the next day to have the temporary crown fitted. Dr Perry advised that I should have crown lengthening done before he fitted the permanent crown (as the tooth broke off so close to the gum), so we decided it would be best to wait until after I had my baby. After my baby I had the crown lengthening done and again was extremely pleased with Dr. Perry's specialist recommendation. After my gums healed I had the permanent crown fitted and it feels like my tooth never broke as Dr. Perry did an unbelievably good job!! Needless to say I have been promoting Ponte Vedra Family Dentistry to all of my friends when they say they need a dentist. I could not have been happier with my experience, thank you Dr. Perry and team!!!

I love coming here despite gum sensitivity and not-a-fan of dental work. I have been a patient at Ponte Vedra Family Dentistry since we moved here in 2012. I was sad to lose Dr. Banga and was very concerned about a new dentist. I see the wisdom in Dr. Banga's wife selling the practice to Drs. Susi and Josh Perry. I highly recommend this practice to the entire family. Dr. Susi Perry (aka Dr. Susi) is fantastic with kids and young adults. Dr. Josh Perry is an expert in adult and geriatric dental care. My grandfather complained about his dentures for ten years until Dr. Perry and his staff were able to line them and heal the remaining bone and tissue. Years of pain, frustration and difficulty eating were remedied in three visits. The front office staff, hygienists and assistants are professional, proficient and kind. They treat us like family. They helped get my grandparents in/out of the car; work with us for appointments; file all the insurance claims; and, provide a gentle touch in cleanings and care. I recommend this dentist to those new to the area; and, anyone looking for a comprehensive dental office.
