Are you missing teeth? Has dental decay, common gum diseases, birth defects, or injuries taken a heavy toll on the beauty and symmetry of your smile? No matter what dental issues might be affecting you at the moment, you now have a great solution to replace your natural teeth with a permanent stand-in. Dental implants are the modern alternative to dentures.
An ideal time when you would want or need a bridge, sometimes if the patient’s health isn’t such that they would be a candidate to place an implant, that’s an ideal situation.
Another ideal situation, I would say it’s like killing two birds with one stone, if you had a missing tooth and a bridge was one of your options to replace that missing tooth and both teeth on either side either already had a crown or possibly had root canals done to both but didn’t have a crown, then in a way you kill two birds with one stone.
Restorative dentistry is a field that has seen massive improvements in recent years, with the advance of technology. Contemporary dental implants make it possible for the dental patient to have missing teeth replaced with artificial ones – but don’t let the word ‘artificial’ rouse mental pictures of fakeness or inefficiency. Today’s teeth implants look, feel, and function exactly the same way as natural teeth. Dr. Jonathan Cook DMD, of llustradent in Fort Lauderdale can provide you with all the information you would ever need on dental implants. You can also schedule a dental appointment with him, either for dental implants or any other implant dentistry procedure. For the time being, though, let us take a look at the five most frequently asked questions about dental implants.

Insurance & Financing
At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.
A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)
While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.
We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.
Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?
Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?
Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?
At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
