Dental Implant SmileHow dental implants from your dentist in Jacksonville Beach, Florida can rebuild your smile

Are you missing teeth? If so, you may be thinking about bridges, partials, or dentures to restore your smile. Before you make the choice, think about a new, state-of-the-art option. Think about dental implants! Dr. Rick Harrison at Jax Beach Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Jacksonville Beach, Florida wants to share how you can restore and rebuild your smile with dental implants.

So, what’s so special about dental implants? Dental implants look and function just like natural teeth, which sets them apart from other tooth replacement solutions. The dental implant screw is inserted in your jaw during a simple in-office procedure. Your body creates more bone which surrounds the implant screw and locks it in place. The dental implant screw will function as the “root” of your missing tooth.

After the area has healed, Dr. Harrison will place a beautiful implant crown on top of the implant screw, giving you a new tooth! The implant will look just like your natural tooth because the implant crown is made of a material that reflects light, just like tooth enamel. The natural beauty of dental implants is just one reason why people choose dental implants over other tooth replacement methods. Other benefits include:

  • Complete stability because the dental implant is firmly embedded in bone
  • Easy maintenance because you brush and floss your implant along with your teeth
  • Lasting beauty because dental implants resist staining and will never decay

Whether you choose to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, you can count on success with dental implants. That’s because they boast a success rate of over 95 percent, the highest of any surgical implant, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

If you want to complete your smile, there is no better choice than dental implants! To find out more about dental implants and other restorative and cosmetic dental services call Dr. Rick Harrison at Jax Beach Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Jacksonville Beach, Florida today!
