You are not a number. You are not a name on a chart. You are an individual, with unique needs who deserves custom, not cookie-cutter, dentistry.

Dental Implant Tooth Replacements

Missing Teeth? Want a Denture Upgrade?

Whether you are missing one tooth, a complete arch, or need entirely new teeth – nothing compares to dental implants. Considered the gold standard in modern tooth replacements, dental implants are indistinguishable from natural teeth and last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. Dental implants are also able to stabilize pre-existing or new dentures, providing a completely different experience compared to traditional prosthetics. Eat, smile, and laugh with complete confidence again!

Frequently Asked Questions, Answered

Whether you’re new to the area and looking for a nearby dentist you can trust or you’re a long-time patient that’s interested in a new service, like modern dentures , it’s normal to have questions. Of course, our friendly and knowledgeable team is here to help over the phone or in-person, but we acknowledge that some patients like to prepare as much as possible beforehand. For this reason, we've responded to some FAQs we hear from patients right here!

How do I find the best place to get dental work done?

Ultimately, the first step in finding the best place to get dental work done is determining what is most important to you! If you’ve had a bad dental experience in the past, then maybe that’s a dental practice that is both highly-skilled and extremely friendly. If you need extensive dental work done, then you’ll want to find a talented dentist who is trained in a wide range of treatments, from essential restorative dentistry to smile-transforming Invisalign . Once you have an idea of what you’re looking for, ask for recommendations and read up on patient reviews. Then, schedule a visit! This is the best way to get to know the team and get a feel for the practice.

What do you do if you can't afford a dentist?

Over the years, more and more patients have come to believe that taking care of their teeth is expensive. In reality, it’s not caring for your teeth that’s costly. Basically, skipping your biannual checkups and putting off essential restorative care can lead to extensive treatments down the line.

The good news is that our team is here to help make navigating the financial component of your treatment headache-free, whether you’re overdue for your six-month checkup or you’re interested in specialty services, like TMJ Therapy or state-of-the-art implant dentures . To start, we will help you understand your dental insurance benefits, filing any necessary claims in the process. For those without dental insurance, flexible financing allows you to break up the cost of your care into manageable, interest-free payments. Lastly, we offer complimentary consultations for treatments like smile makeovers, so enhancing the appearance of your smile doesn’t break the bank either.

How much does a dental check-up & cleaning cost in Jacksonville?

The average cost of a dental check-up and cleaning in the US is between $200 and $350. Of course, that number could vary depending on several factors, including whether X-rays are needed and if you have dental insurance. Remember, these routine visits are an investment in both your oral and overall health. While the cleaning portion removes caked-on plaque and tartar, the checkup screens for serious problems, like cavities and oral cancer. That’s why it’s so important to prioritize these visits!

How do I get emergency dental care?

Hopefully, you won’t ever have to experience a dental emergency. Since they can happen at a moment’s notice, however, it’s important to be prepared. Our skilled team of highly-trained dentists is here to make restoring your smile as efficient and pain-free as possible. We offer early morning and evening office hours throughout the week, so we encourage you to give us a call if you’re experiencing a toothache, have lost a filling, or have cracked a tooth. Potentially life-threatening symptoms, like a fractured jaw, uncontrollable bleeding, or the inability to swallow require medical attention, so you should head straight to the ER or call 911 if any of those are present.
