Labs and Materials
At Jax Beaches Family Dentistry we use only the highest quality and most durable materials available for your dental implants. We refuse to ever place cheap implant materials in your mouth. And, we utilize only the very best dental laboratories. Many laboratories, even ones based here in the USA, will often export lab work to discount labs in China or India. Those labs use cheap materials and feature poorly-trained technicians.That’s NOT what we do at Jax Beaches Family Dentistry.
Our dental implant materials at Jax Beaches Family Dentistry are manufactured from commercially pure titanium. The abutment– or“connector” between your implant and your restoration, and the screw that retains the abutment needs to be manufactured from titanium, gold, or zirconia. If not, galvanic corrosion can occur. Galvanic corrosion occurs when ions move from one metal to another, like a AA battery. If inexpensive metals are used to lower lab costs and galvanic corrosion occurs, your implant surface can corrode which can result in bone loss and total implant failure.
Dental Implants FAQs
What are dental implants?
A dental implant by itself is not a tooth but rather a prosthesis used to replace missing teeth. Essentially, it is a small titanium post/fixture that is inserted into the jawbone, on top of which a singlecrown/cap, afixed bridge, a partialdenture, or full denture can be attached. The implant will integrate with your bone, a structure called an abutment is then connected to the implant and the artificial tooth/teeth are then attached.So there are actually “3” parts to an “implant tooth” — the dental implant itself, the abutment, and the artificial tooth.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
Almost anyone who is missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all teeth are candidates for dental implants. At Jax Beaches Family Dentistry we can discuss with you face-to-face your specific dental implant needs.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
We are all “blessed” with 2 sets of teeth (baby teeth and adult/permanent teeth). When a single permanent tooth or multiple teeth are lost due to decay or gum disease, dental implants effectively become our 3rd set of teeth. Dental implants at Jax Beaches Family Dentistry will likely last a lifetime and can improve your appearance, your confidence, and your ability to eat the foods you like, and make it easier to participate in a very active lifestyle. Remember, dental implants from Jax Beaches Family Dentistry are made of titanium and therefore can never get dental decay!
What are the disadvantages of dental implants?
Like any dental procedure, there is a small risk of infection, inflammation, and light pain, but your Jax Beaches Family Dentist dental doctor will discuss how these can be managed for your specific situation. If there is no available bone to place the implant, then bone and gum grafting procedures may be required, which can increase the degree of difficulty of your treatment.
How much do implants cost and does insurance cover the cost?
In general, the cost of replacing a single tooth with a dental implant is almost the same as replacing it with a regular fixed bridge. Dental implant treatment at Jax Beaches Family Dentistry may qualify for some insurance coverage, but situations vary, so talk to us. The cost will vary by patient needs, bone quantity, and region. We will work with you to determine your unique needs.
What is the success rate of dental implants?
For a relatively healthy individual with good oral hygiene and good health, dental implants are reliably successful with a documented reported success rates above 95%
Do dental implants last?
Unlike natural teeth, dental implants are not susceptible to dental disease such as tooth decay. However healthy gums are key to maintaining long-lasting implant success. Good home care by the patient and regular professional dental cleanings and check-ups are essential for dental implant sustainability. We know each patient is different, and success relies upon diagnosis and planning, medical history, and a variety of other factors. Just know at Jax beaches Family Dentistry we have enjoyed a near-perfect success rate with all of our dental implant patients.
What if I want "metal-free" implants?
There is no such thing as “metal-free” implants. Almost all materials used for teeth replacements have some sort of metal ions in them. Dental implants are made of titanium alloy (similar to hip implants, shoulder implants, and knee implants), which is highly biocompatible. Also, allergies to titanium is extremely rare in humans. Currently, there are no proven alternatives to titanium dental implants.
Can dentures be made into implants?
Dentures cannot be made into implants. Implants are metal devices placed into the jawbone to help anchor and support artificial teeth (implants). You should consult with us at Jax Beaches Family Dentistry if you currently have dentures and are interested in dental implants.
Are dental implants removable like dentures or do they stay in your mouth?
No, all dental implants are fixed securely in your jaw bone, which is why dental implants at Jax Beaches Family Dentistry look so much like real, natural teeth!
How do dental implants help if I have full dentures or partial dentures?
Implants are most popularly used in patients who wear full dentures or partial dentures. Dental implants can be used to provide retention and support for a removable implant overdenture, which basically snaps on the implants! Therefore the partial or full denture does not move and reduces the dependency on denture adhesives.Dental implants can be used for a fixed denture, where a patient’s dentures are fixed/bolted to the implants through titanium components. Only one of our dentists can remove this from your mouth. This is something we should discuss in-person.
