Reclaim Your Smile with Permanent Dental Implants

January 22, 2014

If you are missing one or more teeth, you may find that you’d often prefer to avoid opening your mouth rather than sharing your smile with the world. Missing teeth, especially those located in the front of the mouth, can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. In addition to the aesthetic impact of lost teeth, lacking a stable tooth in any part of the mouth can prove incredibly detrimental to your overall oral health. Fortunately, a permanent solution is available in the form of dental implants.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants help restore your complete smile by taking the place of lost teeth anywhere in the mouth. When you’re missing a tooth, you’re more likely to develop potentially dangerous periodontal disease, a condition that has been shown to be closely related to instances of heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, high blood pressure, diabetes and more. Anything you can do to reduce your risk of this common condition is highly recommended, including replacing missing teeth with dental implants.

In addition to an increased risk of disease, the absence of a tooth allows surrounding, healthy teeth to shift in the mouth. This can lead to an undesirable appearance and problems with bite. The bone tissue in the jaw below the missing tooth can become deteriorated without a strong tooth to support it.

When your local Jacksonville FL dentist places a dental implant in the spot where your tooth used to be embedded in the gum, the rest of your teeth remain in their proper positions. Your jaw structure remains healthy and the risk of periodontal disease is drastically reduced. First, a small post made of titanium is inserted into the gum and affixed to the existing jaw bone. Over time, the bone around the post will grow to support it like a natural tooth’s roots.

After placement of the post, a tooth-colored crown is mounted to it, completing your implant and giving it the look of a real, natural tooth. When cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime, giving you the beautiful, seamless smile you’ve always wanted.

Ask your Jacksonville dentist how dental implants change your smile, the way others perceive you and how you see yourself today. Our practice also serves the areas of Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach, St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, and beyond.
