Dental Implants in Bartram Park • Jacksonville, FL
If you’re missing any teeth, we may recommend that you consider a dental implant. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into your jawbone to anchor new teeth.
They look and feel like natural teeth, allowing you to eat and speak normally. Dental implants don’t require altering healthy teeth, which means there may be no need for bone grafts or additional surgery.
Dental Implants Look and Feel Natural
Dental implants are the closest you can get to real teeth, since they look and feel like your original ones. They're permanent fixtures that provide a foundation for replacement teeth, whether it be a partial denture, full denture, or dental bridge.
Your dentist will remove the damaged tooth and replace it with an implant that is custom-made to fit your mouth exactly. The natural tooth root will then fuse with your bone over time, allowing you to eat and speak normally. This means you'll be able to enjoy all the activities you love without worrying that something might fall out of place.
Dental implants are nearly indistinguishable from your natural teeth. No one will know that you have a replacement tooth unless you tell them. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth, and they're made of titanium, which is naturally found in the body. That's why dental implants are so durable. They can be used to replace one tooth or multiple teeth, so many people who have lost all of their natural teeth choose to get dental implants instead of dentures or partials.
Dental Implants Help Preserve Healthy Bone
Dental implants can help preserve bone and prevent bone loss. They may reduce the risk of bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. This is because the implant acts like a tooth root, stimulating the growth of new bone and helping to maintain a healthy jaw structure over time.
As a result, implants may prevent future complications such as loose teeth, pain and discomfort in your jaw joints and facial muscles, headaches or migraines due to misaligned bite patterns—even snoring! You may also be able to avoid the need for major jaw surgery later on down the line if you get dental implants now instead of waiting until there’s no other way but surgery.
Dental implants are a great long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. They will last for decades and do not require any special care, so you can enjoy eating your favorite foods without having to worry about damage to your dental implant.
Dental Implants Improve Aesthetics
If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants can improve your appearance and help you feel better about yourself. They can also help improve your self-confidence and overall health.
You may be concerned about whether or not dental implants will look natural in terms of size as well as shape when compared to other teeth around them but rest assured that modern technology has allowed us to create dental implants that look incredibly realistic.
We Recommend Them
Dental implants can help preserve the structure of your face, stopping the bone damage that can occur when your teeth aren’t present. Dental implants also cut down on the irritation and discomfort to your gums. Implants allow you to eat and speak normally, while maintaining a healthy mouth and jawbone.
Dental implants are durable, so they won’t need replacing anytime soon. Each implant has an estimated lifespan of 20 to 25 years or more for most patients—that's about five times longer than other types of tooth replacement options like dentures. Plus, unlike dentures, which must be removed for cleaning, you can brush your gums with floss around your custom-made crowns or bridges as you would with natural teeth. This will keep them looking good from the outside in too!
Unlike other methods of tooth replacement surgery, where healthy teeth are altered in order to fit false replacements onto them, dental implants do not require altering healthy teeth during treatment. This makes them safer overall than other methods, such as veneers or crowns, since there isn't any extra stress being put on those areas.
Dental Implants Can Last a Lifetime
Dental implants are made up of titanium that is placed into the jawbone. Once they are in place, they will stay there for life. Once the implant has been integrated with your jawbone, it will provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth to be attached to it via crowns or bridges.
We may recommend dental implants as the best option to replace a missing tooth or teeth. If you've lost a tooth or several teeth, dental implants can be a great option to replace them. Your dentist may recommend a dental implant as the best option to replace a missing tooth or teeth because they're:
