Dental Implants in Jacksonville & Mandarin
Dental Implants ARE The best replacement for the loss of your natural teeth!
Enhance Your Smile with Affordable Dental Implants From a Local Jacksonville Dental Implant Specialist
Are you experiencing a missing tooth or jaw joint problems from teeth shifting to fill the space? Maybe you have or are getting a “sunken face”-look associated with missing teeth? Have you lost your ability to chew any food you want? Are you tired of the hassle of dentures? Are loose or partial dentures frustrating you? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then dental implants at Mandarin Dentistry may be for you!
Dental Implant Procedures
Mandarin Dentistry offers a variety of dental implant solutions:
Single Tooth Replacement – When missing just one tooth – an individual implant, a metal-free dental crown can be the ideal choice. The crown placement at Mandarin Dentistry will not require any significant changes to surrounding teeth, which means less impact on your mouth. Our expert team can design, create, and place a new crown over the singular implant in the span of a single, convenient appointment, thanks to our use of the latest technology.
Implant-Retained Bridges – An Implant-retained bridge at Mandarin Dentistry is similar to a traditional bridge in appearance — they are intended to replace multiple missing teeth. One implant is placed in the jawbone for each individual tooth lost, and the use of a bridge helps to reduce the pressure on each implant and spread it more evenly along the restoration for a more comfortable and functional result. Implant-retained bridges don’t need healthy teeth to be altered to accommodate placement.
Overdentures – Overdentures are full or partial prosthetics that are anchored in place by multiple dental implants. Unlike other options, overdentures are designed to be permanent and non-removable. This stable fit can improve your facial features and promote better digestion.
Hybrid Dentures – Hybrid dentures are often a good reconstructive option for people who are unable to have dental implants placed in certain areas of the mouth because of jawbone deterioration. This type of prosthetic combines the anchoring of implants with the coverage of a denture, eliminating the slippage and discomfort of a traditional denture. They only require dental implants be placed in order to secure the patient’s new teeth, making a recovery faster. Hybrids Dentures at Mandarin Dentistry are made of only the newest antibacterial, super-strong, beautiful materials. Our Team is focused on giving you a perfect fit and great results.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are the closest thing you’ll ever get to having natural teeth again. They are super-strong, stable, durable, and virtually undetectable. Dental implants fill the ugly gaps left by missing teeth at Mandarin Dentistry. Very importantly, implants can provide better chewing ability and prevent jaw problems. They are superior to removable dentures.
Dental implants at Mandarin Dentistry offer many benefits over traditional bridges, partials, and dentures. Dental implants don’t rely upon healthy, “neighboring teeth” for support. They are anchored in your jawbone, so as a result, dental implants do not jeopardize neighboring teeth, and they promote needed bone growth. Dental implants at Mandarin Dentistry are designed to last a lifetime. Bridges, partials, and dentures typically need to be replaced every few years, making dental implants at Mandarin Dentistry a great option for you.
Our dental implant products are known for their strength, longevity, and good looks. Mandarin Dentistry can completely transform your smile with dental implants. Your friends and family will be amazed at how “natural” the transformation will be. You’ll be able to eat your favorite foods without worry! You’ll love the freedom that comes with total tooth replacement and, perhaps most of all, and you’ll enjoy the self-confidence that only comes from having a complete and beautiful smile.

Dental Implant Frequently Asked Questions
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 single crown/cap, a fixed bridge, a partial denture, 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 Mandarin 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 Mandarin 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 Mandarin Dentistry are made of titanium and therefore can never get dental decay!
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 Mandarin 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 Mandarin Dentistry we have enjoyed a near-perfect success rate with all of our dental implant patients.
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 Mandarin 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 Mandarin 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.
