Junca Dental & Associates
Dr. Junca is a down to earth dentist who explains to you in detail what you need and why. I can't complain. His staff are all very sweet girls, and their receptionist has always called me to confirm for every single appointment I've had. Whenever she's had to leave me a voicemail I've just called her back to confirm and I've even left voicemails during the evening confirming appointments, and they have never cancelled me off.I would never hesitate in referring Dr. Junca's dental work to anyone!

In response to Esperanza S review, I Dr. Junca apologize you feel this way about my practice. I have taken into consideration that the timing was not the best to see you and I am sorry if you had felt that you were mistreated and not given proper care. I have already addressed this issue with my front office personnel. We had to accommodate your needs at a later time, however, you were not willing to give us a chance. I wish you the best with your dental treatment.

I wish I could give TEN stars!!! This place is conveniently located close to my home . Appointments are always right on time and Dr. Junca explains to me each time what he see's and why I need what I need. His hand is amazing! I never ever feel the anesthesia needles or the drill. He took my fear of the dentist away.I enjoy my visits and I will recommend this place to anyone who is in the need of a good, professional dentist!

Tips & Advices
Depending on the circumstances, there might not be a safe or effective alternative to dental implants that would not impact your health and quality of life. This is because healthy teeth are essential for maintaining a balanced diet and proper nutrition. In the case of a single tooth damaged from a cavity or infection, a dentist might opt to perform a root canal procedure to remove the infection while preserving the tooth itself. However, this operation often still requires replacing the top of the tooth with an implant known as a crown. In general, the best alternative to implants is preventing the need for them through proper oral hygiene. Regular brushing and flossing helps prevent tooth decay that can eventually lead to loss of teeth and other dental problems.
Start by looking into what is and is not covered under your health or dental insurance to understand and estimate costs. Then work with your primary dental care provider to understand treatment options and get recommendations for practitioners. You may also research oral and maxillofacial practices online.
Coverage of implant procedures varies depending on the specifics of your health or dental insurance. It may also depend on whether or not the implants are considered medically necessary as opposed to being an elective or cosmetic procedure. If you are a member of a Medicare health plan, most elective dental procedures are not covered. Medicare may cover some costs for procedures that involve dental surgery, like reconstruction of the jaw following an accidental injury or emergency surgery. Check with your health plan provider for information on how dental implant services are covered.
Full recovery from an implant procedure can take several weeks or months. Assuming the surgery is completed without any serious complications, patients are usually sent home within a day to recover. For the first day or two after surgery, patients are advised not to disturb the implant site or perform any kind of strenuous physical labor. Gauze pads will need to be periodically replaced to control bleeding for the first day or two. Pain medication to reduce discomfort and swelling is also prescribed for at least the first two weeks. Doctors will advise patients to avoid hard food, hot food or liquid, or use of a straw for the first days after the procedure. The best foods are purees and soups that require minimal chewing and can be eaten with a spoon. Patients may also need to rinse implant sites for a few days after surgery. Follow-up appointments within the first few weeks are often required to ensure recovery is progressing.
Those who perform dental implant procedures are known as oral and maxillofacial surgeons. These physicians are generally certified as a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) as well as one or more special degrees for dental surgery or osteopathic medicine. Becoming a dental surgeon requires at least 12 years of academic and professional training in the United States, and requires certification with the state medical board. A general dentist with specific training in implantology can perform implant surgery, as well as certain specialists:
  • Prosthodontist – specializes in the restoration and replacement of teeth
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgeon – specializes in dental surgery
  • Periodontist – specializes in periodontal (gum) disease
