Dental Implants in Spring Hill, FL

Sometimes when a tooth isn’t restorable, we are left with no alternative but to extract the tooth. An implant is used to replace the missing tooth without having to drill on the adjacent teeth.

Example A demonstrates the similarity between a natural tooth and an implant. The root of the tooth is fixed in the jaw bone and the top of the natural tooth has been prepared to receive a crown. Similarly, the implant is fixed within the jaw bone and replaces the root of the natural tooth. The post attached to the implant is similar to the top of the prepared tooth. It too, is ready to receive a crown.

The process of making a crown on a natural tooth and an implant is very similar. Impressions are required of the mouth and models are made, upon which the crowns are fabricated. Crowns on natural teeth or implants can be made of metal and/or porcelain, and are fabricated to replace the size, shape and color of the natural teeth. Example B demonstrates how the crowns fit over the prepared natural tooth and over the implant post in the same way. The crown on the natural tooth is cemented in place. On the implant it is either screwed or cemented in place. An implant supported crown is almost like having your natural tooth back!

Example C

The X-ray image, Example C shows the implant positioned in the jaw bone. A post will be attached to the implant, upon which the final crown will be placed to replace the missing tooth.

The final crown (cap) has been fabricated and cemented onto the post which is attached to the implant. A small bonded restoration was also placed on the other front tooth to provide a balanced esthetic result. This implant supported crown provides a beautiful aesthetic replacement for the missing tooth.

Ackley Dental helped me with problems that no other Dentist could ! Instead of spot treating problems they came up with a comprehensive plan to fix my entire mouth and a payment program I could afford. I had missing teeth and old fillings that were infected plus other issues. Dr. Ronald Ackley told me in advance what was going to happen in each session and gave me peace of mind and a smile I could be proud of. The entire staff is warm and friendly. My wife says I have a movie star smile. Thank you Ackley Dental !

I paid a lot of money for a CT scan seeking dental implants..... I needed to shop around due to the high estimate....I left with my 300.00 DVD(copy of it) IT would not work on a different dental implant place!! UUGHHH... I called both places back and forth.. trying to see if Ackley could format it a different way...put it on a stick.. whatever.....nope can't be done!! I begged Ackley to return my money and that I was mad!! THEY DID!!!! they have been my dentist in the past and even though I will probably have the procedure done somewhere else they were still HONEST and ENDORSED customer service in doing the right thing! YOU ROCK ACKLEY DENTAL!!!! keep up the awesome customer service....my check was cut in 5minutes!! UNHEARD OF!! I drove there and it was ready at the door in an envelope!! WOW ...RIGHT??!! ...I will be going back to Ackley to see Amy in my dental future! Tu!!!Robin ❤️

I took my kids for their first ever appointment at Ackley Dental and I was not disappointed! The staff was friendly and helpful, the hygienist was quick, efficient and kind. Dr. Amy Ackley was knowledgeable and listened to all of my questions and answered them carefully. They set all of the appointments so I could get my teeth cleaned as my kids were getting theirs done. They did such a good job with each of my kids they came out excited and couldn't wait to come back (even though one of them got sealants!). They gave each of my kids a t-shirt (for having no cavities 🙂 and a goodie bag. What a lovely experience!
