Are Implants For Me? A Second Chance
It is all too common that when our team starts discussing dental implants with people they already have the notion and convinced themselves that they are not good candidates for dental implants. The sad part is that this is almost always a misconception, and not actually the case. There are actually very few reasons that truly prevent a patient from getting dental implants. Some of the most common misconceptions that we hear are:
- “I am too old to get dental implants…”
- “They are too expensive…”
- “They sound painful…”
The truth is most of the time age is not something preventing patients from getting implants. Why not receive treatment that can help you truly enjoy and gain immense satisfaction for the rest of your life? Why not invest in something that can improve your health and potentially add on years to your life?
It is true that implants are an expensive treatment and technology. However, how can you put a price on something that can change your life? Major tooth loss can become a debilitation that can seriously affect your physical and emotional well-being. If you started to have major problems with your hip, would you find a way to get the necessary replacement to transform that joint almost back to new? We as people sometimes forget how important our oral health is. At DentureCare & Implant Solutions, we offer several different levels of treatment solutions to accommodate financial concerns.
The only real way to determine if you are a candidate or not for dental implants is through a thorough consultation and evaluation.
Before the advances made in implant dentistry, the best, and really only, option to predictably restore tooth loss has been dentures (both fixed bridges, and removable dentures). However, as stated, there are many negative side effects that can follow tooth loss that these options cannot help, and sometimes even worsen the issue. Now with implants, we have the ability to take these restorations to that next level, and halt many of those negative effects of tooth loss. Implants also give us a brand new array of treatment options patients never thought possible! Get back to enjoying life, to enjoying eating some of your favorite foods, and socializing and laughing with confidence. The sad truth of tooth loss is real and very common in the world, but with dental implants we now have hope for a second chance!
It is time to STOP COPING and time to START LIVING!

Patient Review By Lorrie G
I had dentures for over 5 years. I was fortunate to have only a top plate but I could no longer enjoy food as I used to. I learned that a lot of your taste buds are in the roof of your mouth. I researched implants for over two years. I could not find any that I could afford. Then by chance I dropped my denture on the dining table. (I would take them out and eat with my gums, much to my family's dismay). I had dropped them numerous times but they had never broken. Guess they just fell the right way or it was God's way of showing me where I needed to go. When I went into denture solutions to get them fixed I asked about implants. Dr. Joc Jernigan talked with me and I told him the reasons I was unhappy with my dentures. He came up with a solution that would work for me and one that I could afford. Now I can eat like I used to, have a beautiful smile and am very happy with the results I got. Dr. Joc Jernigan is the best dentist and person I have ever met in this profession. He truly cares about people and that is rare in this day and time. He showed me kindness when I needed it the most! Thanks to all at denture solutions for the way they helped me to change my life for the better.

Thank you dr. Jernigan and girls !!! Oh what a good job for handling my anxiety and explaining everything to me more than one time . Absolutely never any pain and making it an easy recovery. Gosh, life is wonderful to eat with no more problems from those pesky bad teeth with all their own little nags and no more sensitivity which alone by itself is worth every dime !!!! Along with all mentioned , I also have a beautiful smile. " This makes entering the 50's so much more pleasant. Dr. Jernigan,"Thanks for letting me be entertained by the Goo Goo Dolls through the procedure and sorry for falling asleep a half dozen times while pulling teeth and putting my implants in. You did a magnificent job and thanks for caring most of all !!! So anyway this is me now because of you . Thank you and the girls !!!!!!

I had two teeth cut out on the lower gum and two implants inserted on the same day. Dr. Joc was great and I never had any pain. I also got new lower and upper dentures and have had nothing but praise from my family about how pretty and natural they look. If you have any adjustment done the staff is the greatest to work with and very good at knowing what needs to be done. The implants are very reasonably compared to other Dentist. I would recommend these Doctors and Staff to my family and friends.

The implants have really helped me keep my lower denture in place without it moving and without having to use all of that sticky adhesive. Now I can eat whatever I what without having to worry about my denture moving around.

Patient Review By Leonard M
The implants have really improved my ability to eat. I am able to eat corn on the cob. I am eating more and I am eating better foods now. Before I had the implants my dentures did not stay in place and they jumped around in my mouth. Implants have improved my life!!!
