Dental implants permanently replace missing teeth.
Millions of Americans experience tooth loss—often due to tooth decay, gum disease or injury. For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. Today, dental implants are a highly recommended, modern solution for many. In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can consider dental implants. Implants are a permanent option for missing teeth and provide a host of benefits not offered by temporary solutions.
It is a small, screw-like cylinder (made of titanium) that replaces the root portion of the missing tooth. It’s placed in the bone of the jaw and serves as an anchor to support artificial tooth replacement. When missing teeth are replaced with a restoration that will last a lifetime, it’s very important that implants are placed correctly. The Jacksonville Center for Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry is one of North Florida’s leading experts in the placement of dental implants and also offers sedation dentistry for enhanced comfort, if you desire. To answer any further questions you may have, please schedule your implant consultation today.
Titanium dental implants in Jacksonville, FL look and feel like your own teeth. Because they fuse with bone, they become permanent and offer the same health benefits as your natural teeth. This also means your teeth will not slip and cause speech difficulties or trouble eating certain foods.
Dental implants do not require reducing other teeth (as a bridge will) and—because more of your teeth are left untouched and you can floss between your implants—you will improve your outlook for long-term oral health. This permanent tooth replacement eliminates the inconvenience (and potential embarrassment) of removing (or having loose) dentures as well as eliminate the use of adhesives or any cleaning regimens.
Dental implants offer a secure hold with a success rate of up to 98% and with the proper care, can last a lifetime. Most individuals who have received an implant say that there was very little discomfort involved with the procedure and any post-implant soreness they experienced was able to be treated with over-the-counter pain medication.
