Do you have missing teeth? Dental implants are one of the best ways to restore your smile. Our Jacksonville dental implants:
Installing implants is a complex procedure that requires us to replace their missing teeth in a safe and natural way. We know that there are multiple dental providers to choose from so Dr. Zimmerman and the staff at Dr. Z Dentistry at the Smile Resort are constantly looking for ways to improve the overall experience of our patients. Our office is located in Jacksonville and we offer patients the opportunity to restore missing teeth in a way that looks natural and beautiful.
An implant is essentially an “artificial tooth root” that we install where the previous tooth once stood. The surface encourages a process called osseointegration, which is where your bone permanently fuses to the implant, securing it in place. Once your implant is fully integrated, it can support a fixed crown, bridge, or other implant restoration.
Since implants mimic natural teeth, they’re non-invasive to the healthy teeth you still have. There are no removable prosthetics to wear and no need to alter adjacent teeth to attach something to them. Implants help you preserve natural biting patterns and spacing, as if you had your natural tooth all over again.
And since implant maintenance is the same as caring for your other teeth, brushing and flossing is a breeze. When properly cared for, a dental implant can potentially last the rest of your life.
The integrity of implants means that you can use them in pairs to support multi-tooth restorations, instead of a one-for-one implant to tooth ratio.
No! In fact, dental implant treatment is straightforward and comfortable. Only a small amount of local anesthetic is needed. Most of our patients tell us that it’s easier than having a tooth taken out. Since your bone doesn’t have any nerve endings, the only thing you’ll feel afterward is a little tenderness on your gums.
