While there are a variety of options for people who have missing teeth, none has proven as effective or durable as dental implants. Jacksonville dentist, Dr. Alexander offers dental implants to patients as a permanent and natural-looking solution for tooth loss. Whether you need a single dental implant for one lost tooth, or multiple implants for a row of missing teeth, Alexander & Greenburg Dentistry can help you!
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is used to replace a missing tooth. One implant can be placed to restore a single missing tooth, or multiple implants can be used to secure a fixed bridge or denture.
The dental implant consists of three parts:
- A bio-compatible titanium post that will act as the tooth’s root
- An abutment that will hold the restoration to the post
- A restoration which is either a dental crown, bridge, or denture.
Are Implants Right For You?
Most patients will qualify for dental implants. You should be healthy and have sufficient jawbone structure to support the implant. If you have suffered bone loss due to missing teeth, Dr. Alexander may recommend bone grafting to ensure the success of your dental implant. You need to have healthy jaw bone and a good oral health foundation for this restoration to succeed, and get you back to normal life.
