Dental Implants: Your Best Choice

You’ve just lost a tooth. Or perhaps you have had many missing teeth for years. Your situation may leave you feeling embarrassed and alone, but the truth is, millions of people just like you suffer from tooth loss.

The good news is that you have options, and your best choice is dental implants. Made from durable, strong materials, dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that are permanent. They are designed to restore your smile’s function, health, and aesthetics permanently, helping you return to a higher level of confidence and quality of life.

Think of them as artificial teeth that mimic in almost every way the function and beauty of natural, healthy teeth.

We Place and Restore Dental Implants

People are living longer than ever, and while regular brushing, flossing, and checkups allow many of us to maintain our natural smiles for a lifetime, sometimes our teeth just can’t keep up. If you’ve lost a tooth (or a few teeth) due to injury or disease, dental implants can rejuvenate both your smile and your oral health.

An implant is a synthetic tooth root in the shape of a post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. The “root” is usually made of titanium: the same material used in many replacement hips and knees, and a metal that is well-suited to pairing with human bone. A replacement tooth is then fixed to the post. The tooth can be either permanently attached or removable. Permanent teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth.

The ideal candidate for implants is a non-smoker who has good oral health, including a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw, and healthy gums with no sign of gum disease.

As an implant only practice, our expertise in surgical and restorative aspects of dental implants is far-reaching, and we are equipped to provide comprehensive implant care in our Ocala, FL office for patients needing single, multiple, or full arch dental implants.

We can usually extract the tooth and place the implant during one appointment while you are comfortably sedated, resulting in fewer visits for you. To assist us in the placement of dental implants, we utilize cone beam CT technology and guided surgical technology. This ensures that we are placing your dental implants in the exact position for the greatest long-term success. By using this advanced technology, we can restore any number of missing teeth to full function and in significantly less time—giving you more time out of the chair and a faster return to an active, confident lifestyle.

Implants are versatile. If you are only missing one tooth, one implant plus one replacement tooth will do the trick. 

If you are missing several teeth in a row, a few strategically placed implants can support a permanent bridge (a set of replacement teeth). 

Similarly, if you have lost all of your teeth, a full bridge or full denture can be permanently fixed in your mouth with a strategic number of implants.


Conventional bridges and dentures are not fixed to the bone, and can therefore be unstable. This can make it difficult to eat or smile with confidence. Implants not only look more natural, but feel and act more like normal teeth, with a stronger biting force. 

Because they don’t directly rely on neighboring teeth for support, implants don’t compromise the health of your natural teeth. In fact, bridges are only expected to last seven to ten years, even less with root canals, whereas implants will typically last a lifetime.

Dental implants act like natural teeth, from root to crown. They're made of highly durable and strong materials that can resist the force of eating tough, hard, or chewy foods like meat, nuts, and raw fruits and vegetables.

Dental implants integrate with the jaw bone, providing the same level of stimulation as that of natural tooth roots. Whenever you bite or chew, implants take on this pressure and help keep the jaw bone healthy.

Color, translucency, size, shape, and positioning are all considered when restoring dental implants. Dental implant crowns are artificial teeth that are indistinguishable from natural teeth!

Consider your replacement teeth to be the same as natural teeth. They require the same daily brushing and flossing, and the same amount of regular checkups. Just like your natural teeth, the better you take care of your replacements, the longer they will last.


Our implant services include:

Often the sinuses will enlarge following loss of the upper back teeth. This can preclude placement of dental implants in the upper back areas of the mouth, since the sinus is an air-filled space and dental implants need to be surrounded by solid bone. A sinus lift augmentation/graft is a surgical procedure that restores the sinus cavity to its original size, and replaces the bone that has been lost as a result of the enlarged sinus. This new bone graft typically takes nine to 12 months to heal before the dental implants can be placed into the grafted bone.

Occasionally, the ideal areas for dental implants do not have sufficient bone quantity to support the implants. In these cases, it is often necessary to “borrow” bone from another area of your mouth and graft it into the deficient area. Often, the area of choice is from the chin or in the back of the jaw where your wisdom teeth used to be.

When a tooth needs to be removed due to infection, it is not uncommon to have lost bone around the infected tooth. In these cases, various types of bone grafting can be done at the same time the tooth is removed to facilitate the placement of a dental implant at a later date.

We have special software on our computer that allows us to evaluate your dental CT scan in three dimensions for bone quality, bone quantity, and bone location, enabling the best possible placement of your dental implants. This also allows us to work closely and smoothly with your restorative dentist to ensure an ideal result where your dental implants are concerned.

Once your dental implant restoration is completed, it is important to keep the area clean and infection-free. Dental implants can accumulate plaque and tartar just as teeth can. Whether you have just one tooth replaced by an implant or several, a professional cleaning schedule will be necessary to keep your implants healthy. The time interval for these professional cleanings will be determined by your individual needs.
