Even one missing tooth can compromise your smile and make you self-conscious. Missing teeth can cause complex oral health concerns as well at other health concerns. The sooner you seek treatment for your missing tooth, the more effective and conservative the treatment will be. Jacksonville FL dentist, Dr. Donald J. Alexander, offers dental implants- the best solution for replacing a missing tooth.
Dr. Alexander offers comprehensive treatment options for dental implants in Jacksonville, FL. Dr. Alexander will handle the pre-treatment planning and implant restoration parts of the procedure. Our office works with select Jacksonville periodontists and oral surgeons for the placement of the implant.
Single Dental Implant
Dental implants are the most natural looking and sustainable option for replacing a single tooth. A dental implant is a surgically implanted titanium post that replaces the missing root structure. Over a 3-6 month period, the titanium post will fuse with the natural bone helping it to support the structure of the jaw and to provide a secure base for the attachment of a dental restoration.
Dr. Alexander will then secure a dental crown to the healed implant. The crown will be custom designed to aesthetically fit your smile. Dental implants provide natural, tooth-like replacement options for missing teeth. Dental implants allow patients to maintain a normal oral hygiene routine and eat and speak with confidence. Implants also provide long-term support of the jaw bone and deter deterioration or recession of the facial structure.
Missing teeth can create a whole range of health concerns. From chronic halitosis to an increased risk of developing gum disease, missing teeth are both a cosmetic and oral health concern. Dental implants are an investment in your health, confidence, and overall well-being.
