If you are looking for a dentist who will see your treatment through from start to finish and who truly values your health and well-being, your search ends here. Contact Dr. Christ today to schedule a consultation.

Understanding the Procedure

Dental implants are small, extremely strong titanium screws that are implanted into your jawbone to provide root-like support for natural-looking restorations. Dr. Christ will match you with a reputable, trusted oral surgeon to perform the implantation surgery.

First, an incision will be made in your gum, and a pilot hole will be created in your jawbone to make room for the implant. The dental implant will be inserted, and the incision closed. It takes a few weeks for the implant to fuse properly to the bone, or osseointegrate, so in the meantime, you will be fitted with a temporary restoration to maintain the aesthetics of your smile. Once your dental implants are ready, Dr. Christ will restore them at his Tarpon Springs office.

Types of Dental Implants

Implants can be restored with crowns, bridges, or even a full set of dentures, depending on the patient's individual needs. For denture wearers, dental implants can be an excellent solution to ill-fitting or uncomfortable dentures and messy adhesives. Dental crowns are great for patients who have lost a single tooth, and dental bridges or partial dentures can be used to replace multiple missing teeth.

The Benefits

As soon as you lose a tooth, the basic structure of your mouth begins to change. Your remaining teeth begin to shift toward the gap, and your jawbone starts to deteriorate. The gaps left by those teeth can create safe havens for decay-causing bacteria and make it difficult for you to clean your mouth and teeth thoroughly.

Missing teeth can make you feel embarrassed about your appearance and cause you to hesitate when smiling or laughing. Dr. Christ and his team want to make that you feel comfortable expressing yourself without reservation. Dental implants can give you a bright, white, beautiful smile, while making it easier to chew, eat, and speak normally.


Bone density and the health of your gums and jaw help to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. Dr. Christ goes to great lengths to ensure that no phase of your treatment is overlooked. He believes that you deserve his full attention and concern and will provide you with the information you need to feel prepared for the procedure. The examination during your initial consultation will determine whether dental implants are right for you. If you have any questions or concerns, this appointment is the best time to raise them.
