Treatment of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorders
Some form of TMJ disorder affects between 5% and 12% of the general adult population. The condition is more prevalent among women. Additionally, individuals between 20 and 40 are at a higher risk of developing TMD.
Full and Mini Dental implants
Mini dental implants are smaller versions of standard dental implants, making them a good option for those with atrophied jaw bones or health issues. Maintaining good oral hygiene is important for their longevity. Implantologists, prosthodontists, and periodontists can determine if they're right for you. Although more research is needed, mini-implants are gaining popularity.
Complete mouth restoration
Full mouth rehabilitation is a comprehensive approach involving a series of dental treatments and procedures to correct multiple dental problems and restore a healthy smile.
This type of reconstruction involves various oral surgery procedures, including dental implants, periodontal treatment, Invisalign aligners, porcelain veneers, and more. After thoroughly analyzing the patient's mouth, the dentist will decide on the proper sequence for these procedures.
TREATMENT FOR SLEEP DISORDERS
Dr. Whitsitt works with sleep specialists to provide appliance therapy for people suffering from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). These custom-made sleep appliances are suitable for individuals with mild to moderate sleep apnea. However, if you have severe OSA, it is recommended that you seek diagnosis and monitoring from sleep experts.
Cosmetic and Aesthetic dentistry
Aesthetic and cosmetic dentistry refer to dental procedures that enhance the visual appeal of your teeth. It differs from general dentistry, which focuses mainly on maintaining the health of your teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry offers a variety of treatments that aim to give you the ideal smile you desire. These treatments include teeth whitening, veneers, composite bonding, and complete smile makeovers. If you require dental work for maintaining your oral health, you can avail NHS treatment.
Maxillofacial prosthodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses on helping patients with congenital or acquired defects in the head and neck area. These defects can cause functional impairments and cosmetic disfigurement, ranging from minor to severe. This specialty aims to rehabilitate patients and improve their quality of life.
As a member of the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain is dedicated to alleviating craniofacial pain, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, and dental sleep-related disorders. They aim to promote education, research, and the sharing of knowledge and skills in these fields.
The Ultimate Testimonial...
Hello. My name is Dr. James Monahan. My wife Kristy, recently had a complete and comprehensive reconstruction of her teeth. Because Kristy is my wife, I would not do the work myself.
I personally know a number of dentists in Flagler and Volusia counties. However, I did not consider anyone other than Dr. Whitsitt. He is recognized as one of the top specialists in the area of cosmetic implants and dental crowns.
Dr Whitsitt’s work was quality all the way. His staff was very supportive. He was also caring and empathetic throughout my wife’s entire procedure.
I recommend anyone needing dental implants, or any form of advanced dental procedures, seek the guidance and professionalism of Dr. John Whitsitt. He is masterful.
