At McKinney Dental, we are happy to offer affordable dental implants in Jacksonville. Dental implants can improve your day to day life in many more ways than you may realize, and we would like to take a little bit of time to outline their benefits.
As you might expect with dental implants, the processes of chewing and talking are obviously improved. But there are more benefits than the physical and the aesthetic. Dental implants also have the psychological effect of boosting your confidence. Smiling, laughing, and meeting new people are all easier with Jacksonville tooth implants. This increased confidence can be the inspiration you need to help you to go farther in your career or personal life. With dental implants, Jacksonville residents don't have to wonder ever again about who might notice gaps in their smiles.
A dental implant in Jacksonville replaces the whole tooth, including the root portion inside the gum. A crown or false tooth is formed to match the shape and look of your teeth, while a titanium post keeps the implant in place, acting as a replacement to the natural tooth root. Without the presence of a root to nourish the gums, their tissue can recede and change the overall shape of your smile and face, making you look older and robbing you of your natural and healthy facial structure. By placing the titanium post in that space, your gums stay healthier and in the same position, as nature intended.
