There are several reasons why patients may lose a tooth. Cavities, gum disease, root canal failures or cracked roots, to name some of the few reasons. Implants are a great way to replace teeth or to use in conjunction with partials or dentures to anchor them in place.
Dr. Gatling does not place implants, but works closely with some of the best periodontists and oral surgeons in Jacksonville, who will place the implants. Once the healing has taken place, Dr. Gatling places the restorations for the implants. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth; but don’t believe us, take a look at our smile gallery for examples of Dr. Gatling’s implant cases.
What Makes Gatling Dentistry Different
- Established Office
Our practice opened in 1976 by Dr.Robert Gatling, and are honored to provide dental care for your entire family’s smiles!
- Continuing Education
Our staff are constantly involved in continuing education course to further their dental knowledge. We feel these hours directly translate into improved patient care.
- Patients Involved In Care
We feel when patients are part of the team, the team is complete. When patients know what we are doing and why we are doing it, they make better decisions for themselves and their expectations are met.
We take a proactive preventive approach to our patients care. From our initial exam to our hygiene room, we look for the early warning signs of breakdown, such as worn teeth, in effort to prevent more extensive and expensive treatment down the road.
