Need The Best Dental Implants
Many patients who are missing teeth come to our Jacksonville office desiring a healthy and long-lasting solution for replacing their missing teeth.
In many cases, dental implants may be the best option available.
A dental implant is essentially an artificial root that is placed directly into the jaw and functions much like a natural root. The placement process is relatively easy for patients.
Sheila share’s her dental implant surgery experience.
We have heard over and over how patients who were worried about the procedure of placing an implant were surprised how simple the appointment was and how they wish they had replaced their missing teeth sooner.
People who are unable to wear dentures or partials are great candidates for implants. Dentures that are stabilized by implants can make all the difference in stabilizing a loose fitting denture so patients can eat and talk with confidence. Other dentures can be permanently retained by implants so a patient never has to be embarrassed about having to remove their dentures.
In order to be a good candidate for implants the patient should be in good health, have the proper bone structure and healthy gums. But even if you are not the perfect candidate modern dentistry can often fix some of the conditions that might have prevented a patient from having a dental implant in the past.
One of these conditions was the lack of adequate bone. With the advent of great bone grafting material, often patients who were compromised because of bone loss can now be candidates for dental implants.
If these requirements can be met, the artificial root “the implant” can provide a secure way to replace missing teeth. Because of the artificial root, dental implants often feel more comfortable and secure than crowns or dentures.

Benefits of our Dental Implants
Dental implants can be cleaned in the same way your natural teeth are cleaned, through brushing and flossing regularly and seeing your dentist every 6 months. There is no extra upkeep for implants as compared to natural teeth.
Your own bone grows into the dental implants, so they stay securely in place, giving you the same stability as your natural teeth. Almost 95% of implants placed in the lower jaw are still functioning well after 25 years. So dental implants are a long term solution to your problems.
Dental implants are an excellent cosmetic solution to missing teeth as they offer the same look and feel as your natural teeth.
