Dental Implants – Cosmetic Dentistry in Fort Lauderdale

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are basically like screws that are screwed into the bone, and on top of these screws a crown is placed, and this is to replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants are really the best option for the replacement of a single or multiple teeth. They don’t come in and out of the mouth like dentures do, they’re really easy to eat with, they don’t flex or pinch the gums like dentures would, and they really look and feel like your natural teeth.

What are the disadvantages to dental implants?

Some of the disadvantages include cost. It’s one of the more expensive procedures that you’ll receive in dentistry. It’s a surgery that’s required, so a lot of people will shy away from the fact that it’s surgery. And then, also, it’s the time in which it takes for you to eventually eat with the implant. It’ll typically take three or four months before the implant has fully healed, and then at that point you can eat with the implant.

How long should dental implants last?

With proper care, implants can last up to 25 years and sometimes longer, and the success rate in the US is about 95%.

How much do dental implants cost?

Be really careful when searching for specifically the cost for dental implants. They can be extremely deceiving, and it’s a little confusing as well. You have three parts to the dental implant, so a lot of the times advertisers will put in the cost for specifically the dental implant, but they’re leaving out the other two parts, and so those other two parts, of course, have a fee associated with them. Think of an implant like a package of three things. You have the implant, that’s basically the screw that’s screwed into the bone. On top of that is an abutment, kind of consider this or think of this like a post. And on top of the abutment or the post is the crown. So those are the three parts. Each have different costs, and so what you’ll find, typically, is a dental implant will cost anywhere between $1,000 and $3,000. The abutment and the crown kind of combined as a package deal will cost anywhere between $500 and $3,000, so you’ve quite a bit of a range there.

How are you gonna take care of your dental implants?

It’s really no different than taking care of your natural teeth. You’re going to floss every day, you’re going to brush twice a day or more, and maybe you’ll use a Waterpik to get to areas that you just can’t reach. The contour or the anatomy of the dental implant is a little bit different than your natural teeth, so you may find that food collects in these areas a little bit more frequently than in others.

How do you find a really good surgeon to place your dental implant?

You have a lot of options out there. Today, general dentists, periodontists, prosthodontists, oral surgeons are all placing implants.

How do you sift through all these options?

Reputation is huge here. I think you can find a lot of information online. If you want to kind of narrow it down, a board certified periodontist isn’t a bad place to start. And, obviously, asking friends and family who they’ve had success with isn’t a bad idea either.

What does the procedure consist of?

On day one, you’ll go in and see the surgeon to consult. It’s possible you still have a tooth that’s there that needs to be extracted prior to the placement of the implant. If that’s not the case, then he’ll place the implant on day one. On day two … This is about three or four months after the initial surgery, that’s the amount of time it requires to heal. At that point, the dentist will place the abutment, or the post that we spoke about earlier that kind of get screwed into the screw, and then that impression is sent to the lab. The lab then sends back the crown, so on day three you’ll come in and either have the crown cemented in or screwed in, and that would be it.

“Dr John has been fantastic and I’m so glad that I have someone that I can truly trust with my dental care! I needed a new crown and bridge and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look so natural and perfect for my smile! I’ve also had a whitening treatment in house and was extremely pleased with the results. Their staff are all very friendly and caring, at both locations. I also appreciate how efficient and flexible they are with appointments.”

"I absolutely love this office. Starting from the front desk girls, they are always so friendly. I love having my teeth cleaned by Olga, she’s so gentle and yet so good, makes you want to go back for cleanings more often. Dr John is very nice, and professional. This office is great at educating you when dental work is needed, but never tries to pressure you into getting it done. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and cared for."

"JJ Dental is AWESOME, I promise after your first cleaning you’ll be hooked. Dr John is extremely talented, his service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that I never feel pressured to get any work done, I am given my options but also told “ if it doesn’t hurt we can hold off for now.” I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new dentist."

Insurance & Financing

At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.


We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.

Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?

Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?

Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?

At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
