Would you like to look younger, speak more clearly, and enjoy a wider selection of foods? Have you been wearing the same dentures for more than 10 years? Would you like to avoid the bone loss that is inevitable with the loss of even one tooth? Then dental implants from your dentist in Jacksonville TX – permanent artificial teeth that are anchored in your jaw – may be right for you.
Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They can improve your appearance, comfort, and self-confidence. Dentists have been working with them for more than forty years. They’ve become so popular that more than 500,000 dental implants are placed every year in the US alone!
If you feel self-conscious about your teeth and mouth, consider that dental implants can replace the form and function of missing teeth, whether it’s only one tooth or two ... or even if it’s to replace teeth in an entire jaw. Implants can also be used to anchor dentures to prevent soreness and clicking, or as replacements for partial dentures and bridgework.
Dental implants have proven themselves time and time again since the first titanium dental implant was first placed in a human volunteer in 1965. In the beginning, many people associated them with space-age technology and considered them out of reach for ordinary people. Today, a dental implant can be used to immediately replace a tooth lost by a young athlete, for example. This is without a doubt the best way to minimize bone loss, the shifting of teeth, and the emotional trauma associated with an altered appearance. Dental implants look natural, can help maintain a more youthful appearance, and are so versatile that they can be used in combination with other restorative techniques – at any age!
Here are some of the ways that dentistry can improve your smile using dental implants.
- Individual implants can replace one or more missing teeth. Because it’s created just for you, we can match your natural tooth enamel, tooth size, and shape, while cosmetically enhancing your smile.
- If you are missing more than one adjacent teeth, implants can be used in combination with a bridge. Both restorations are so natural-looking, they’re virtually undetectable.
- Implants can be used to secure specially modified dentures to improve your appearance and your ability to eat and speak with comfort.
