Are you missing teeth? Do you experience the daily struggle of dentures that slip and float? If so, you need to ask Dr. Jackson about dental implants. These innovative prosthetic devices replace teeth roots to provide a dependable anchor for dentures or individual crowns.
THE MODERN SOLUTION FOR MISSING TEETH
Traditionally, missing teeth were replaced with a denture, bridge, or partial. Without the solid foundation a natural tooth’s root provided, bridges needed crowns placed on altered surrounding teeth to hold the replacement teeth in place. Partials attached to healthy teeth with clasps, and dentures relied on natural suction or denture adhesives to stay in place. A more lifelike and permanent solution is a bridge, denture, or single-tooth replacement provided with dental implants. Instead of using natural suction, surrounding teeth, or messy adhesives, dental implants are their own anchor. Implant posts are placed precisely in a patient’s jaw, allowing jawbone tissue to remain healthy and less likely to deteriorate, as well as providing a solid foundation for the replacement teeth. No other dental prosthetic solution reduces potential for jawbone degeneration.
COMPREHENSIVE CARE FOR YOUR COMFORT & CONVENIENCE
Advanced training in oral surgery procedures allows Dr. Jackson to perform all aspects of your dental implant treatment here in our Eustis dental office. From initial consultation to follow-up appointments, we can oversee your entire dental implant process. First, Dr. Jackson will place the titanium implant post into the sockets left by missing teeth. The number of implants you will need is based on the type of prosthetic that will eventually be attached. After the implant site has healed, you’ll return to the office so that Dr. Jackson can design and place your final prosthetic.

Implant patients don’t have to hassle with special oral healthcare routines. Simply brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit Dr. Jackson as recommended for checkups and cleanings. With proper maintenance,dental implants can last a lifetime.
