Free Consultations for Dental Implants
North Florida Dentistry offers dental implants as a part of our regular and cosmetic dentistry services in the Clay County area. Dental implants are a sturdy artificial replacement for missing teeth that consist of a post and crown. They look and function just like normal teeth, so are considered cosmetic dentistry because of the appearance. Implants have fast become one of the most popular treatments for replacing severely damaged or diseased teeth.
While dental implants are a great solution for missing teeth, sometimes additional preparation may be required before the procedure can begin. If you don’t have sufficient supporting bone, you may require a bone graft to create a stable base for the implant’s attachment. Those with large sinuses may need to have a sinus lift in any areas where there is a danger of the implant’s post invading the sinus space when placed. Many people are able to begin treatment immediately.
Our dentist will evaluate your unique set of circumstances to make sure your mouth is properly prepared to receive the dental implant. Any additional issues will be addressed during the treatment planning phase so you are kept informed every step of the way. Contact us today for your free consultation!
A Long-Lasting Solution for Missing Teeth
A dental implant is often considered the best option for replacing a missing tooth—or several missing teeth. Built to last, these incredible structures are made with an anchoring titanium “root” that attaches into the jawbone and an accompanying porcelain crown that looks, feels, and functions just like a real tooth. There are both regular and mini-size implants. What is used will depend on the individual and their unique circumstances.
The implant process takes a while from start to finish. Generally, the post is placed first and allowed to heal into the surrounding bone below. This may take a long period of time and is necessary to make sure the new “root” is properly secured. Once this is finished, a crown is placed and any dental bonding needed is done to complete the procedure.
Patients often prefer the look and feel of a dental implant to that of a bridge, and these days, implants are being used much more frequently. Once placed, the implant doesn’t require any special care. An implant is incredibly strong and able to stand up to all the pressure exerted by your jaw the same way a natural tooth would.
Implant Consultations and Financing
Although dental implants are more expensive than some of the other teeth replacement solutions, they look extremely natural, and they often last 15 to 20 years, or longer. If you’re looking for a fairly permanent option that does the job of a real tooth, you simply can’t do much better than an implant. Our dentists do a great deal of these procedures, and we have the experience needed to place them quickly and effectively.
If you’re interested in learning more about this procedure, we’ll be glad to schedule a consultation to answer any questions you may have. Patients who may be concerned about the cost should know that we extend financing through Care Credit to make it far more affordable. Contact North Florida Dentistry today!
