Our preventive program is a collaborative effort involving you, our experienced dentists, and our caring dental staff. Together, we work to prevent the onset, progression, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.

Starting at Home: Oral Hygiene and Nutrition

The foundation of dental disease prevention begins with you. A healthy smile starts with good oral hygiene practices and a well-balanced diet. Brushing, flossing, and maintaining a nutritious diet are your first lines of defense in safeguarding your oral health.

In the Dental Office: Professional Care

Beyond your efforts at home, our team is here to support and enhance your oral health. Our skilled dentists and dental hygienists play a vital role in promoting, restoring, and maintaining your dental well-being. We are committed to ensuring you have the knowledge and resources to achieve and maintain a healthy, confident, and beautiful smile.

Preventive Services

Our dental practice offers a range of preventive services, including:

  • Regular Dental Exams: Routine check-ups are essential to monitor your oral health and detect any issues early, before they become major problems.
  • Professional Cleanings: Our dental hygienists provide thorough cleanings to remove plaque and tartar buildup, ensuring your teeth stay healthy and vibrant.
  • Digital X-rays: We utilize the latest technology to capture detailed images of your teeth, aiding in early diagnosis and personalized treatment plans.
  • Sealants: These protective coatings are applied to the biting surfaces of your teeth to shield them
    from decay and damage.
  • Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride strengthens your tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay.

Preventive care is a proactive investment in your dental health. By preventing serious dental issues, we not only help you maintain a beautiful smile but also save you from costly treatments down the road.

At Jax Dental Arts, we are committed to partnering with you to achieve and maintain excellent oral health. Schedule your appointment today, and let us work together to ensure your smile remains confident, healthy, and beautiful.

Questions & Answers
What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small, biocompatible titanium screws surgically placed in your jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. Crowns, bridges, or dentures are then attached to these implants, creating a permanent and natural-looking restoration for missing teeth.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Most individuals with good overall health and adequate jawbone density are suitable candidates for dental implants. During a consultation, your dentist will assess your oral health and discuss your candidacy for this treatment.

What are the benefits of dental implants compared to other options like dentures?

Dental implants offer numerous advantages over dentures:

  • Stability and security: Implants fuse with your jawbone, providing a fixed and comfortable solution that won’t slip or cause pain.
  • Improved oral health: Implants preserve your jawbone from resorption, maintain the health of surrounding teeth, and prevent facial sagging.
  • Natural look and feel: Implants look and function just like natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
  • Durability: Dental implants are built to last a lifetime with proper care, eliminating the need for frequent replacements.
What is the process for getting dental implants?

The implant process typically involves several steps:

  • Consultation: Discussing your needs and suitability for implants.
  • Planning and preparation: Taking X-rays and 3D scans to guide implant placement.
  • Surgery: Placing the implant(s) in your jawbone under local anesthesia or sedation.
  • Healing and integration: Allowing the implant(s) to fuse with your jawbone (a few months).
  • Abutment placement: Connecting small posts to the implants.
  • Crown, bridge, or denture attachment: Finalizing your restoration with custom-made teeth.
How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants varies depending on individual needs, the number of implants required, and other factors. We accept all PPO Insurance and offer a variety of flexible payment options such as CareCredit. Also, be sure to check out our in-house membership program.
