Dental implants offer patients who have lost a tooth a “replacement in kind”: a prosthetic tooth that is anchored into the jaw bone with a tiny titanium post that mimics the tooth root. The tiny post implanted acts much like a natural tooth root. It helps generate natural bone growth to support the tooth structure.
Dental implants can also improve gum health. Keeping your gums healthy decreases the chance of infection or the development of periodontal disease. Dental implants provide a long lasting and life-like replacement for lost teeth.
An implant not only provides patients with a secure, natural-looking, and functioning tooth, but it can also help reduce further bone loss and support long-term dental health. They can be used to secure dentures when a patient has either multiple missing teeth to replace, or wishes to fix the problem of ill-fitting dentures. Strategically placed implants will support the denture and help maintain sufficient bone retention and growth.
Dental implants feel just like a natural tooth. Once complete, and patients can eat and function normally. There is no special daily care involved in maintaining the implant. Regular brushing and flossing, as well frequent visits to our Jacksonville dentist office, are highly encouraged to help preserve your dental implant. Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper maintenance and care.
