What are Dental Implants?
Are you missing a tooth due to a traumatic event, extreme decay, or periodontal disease? Your Jacksonville implant dentist has the ideal solution to bring your smile back to life!
Dental implants offer you the exciting possibility of having a permanent tooth replacement that seamlessly blends into your smile. Implants mimic your natural tooth’s root, which not only creates a solid foundation for your replacement tooth but also prevents issues below the gumline (i.e., jawbone deterioration and teeth shifting).
Dr. Field uses Zimmer and Straumann dental implants because of their high-quality materials and excellent support and stability systems. Some benefits you can enjoy with our high-quality implants include:
Experience a newfound vitality and a renewed sense of confidence when speaking, chewing, or smiling!
Dental Implants in Jacksonville Beach, FL
The process begins with a thorough evaluation of your teeth and jaw. Dr. Field will take digital x-rays and obtain 3D images of your teeth and skull. He’ll then plan out the placement points and carefully insert the implant into your jawbone through a small incision in your gum.
After your implant is placed, it will gradually connect with your bone in a process called osseointegration. Once fused to the jawbone, your implant will be more stable, just like your natural teeth. After this process, Dr. Field can safely place the abutment (connector) on top of it to act as an anchor for your restoration.
Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Field will recommend an appropriate restoration such as a crown (for a single missing tooth), a bridge (for multiple missing teeth), or even an implant-retained denture (for all missing teeth). These custom-made restorations are then attached to the implant(s) to restore the beauty and function of your smile.
How can Dr. Field repair your smile?
When you have a missing tooth, a single implant topped with a beautiful and durable dental crown can return your smile’s charm and function.
As only one tooth needs to be replaced, the rest of your natural teeth will be fully preserved while we carefully blend your new restoration into your smile.

Erok D. (5-Star Patient Review)
We are proud to be one of the only dental offices in the Jacksonville area to offer same-day extractions with immediate load implants using platelet-rich plasma technology.
Thanks to this state-of-the-art procedure, Dr. Field can provide you with a dental implant and an immediate temporary crown right after your extraction.
You can avoid temporary devices and enjoy the journey to your new smile today!
How is this possible?
With Platelet Rich Plasma, Dr. Field can speed up the healing process after your extraction allowing for us to place immediate implants the very same day.
Platelets are blood cells responsible for helping the blood clot after an injury or a medical procedure (like an extraction). Applying your platelet-rich plasma to the site of tooth extraction significantly improves the healing process. This then makes it possible to insert a dental implant while the gum/bone heals. As a result, we can place a temporary restoration, and you can leave our office with a new smile!
