    Dr. Michael McClure, cosmetic dentist in Jacksonville, FL is helping adult patients who suffer with permanent tooth loss finally find a permanent solution for functional, beautiful smiles other than removable dentures. More than 30 million adults in America rely on some form of denture or partial denture every day. And while these prosthetics may help to restore the aesthetics of their smile, these denture patients are often left struggling with ill-fitted devices that cannot fully restore chewing and speaking function to their mouth. With dental implants, however, Dr. Michael McClure is able to provide patients at Jacksonville Center for Restorative Dentistry with a permanent smile that can last a lifetime.

    With dental implants, patients no longer have to hassle with adhesive strips or pastes required with removable dentures, or the struggle that can come with eating and speaking using partial dentures. Dental implants are designed to restore full function to the patient’s smile, and can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or in the instance of denture wearers, entire top and bottom arches of missing teeth. When placed correctly, dental implants can even withstand more chewing force and are more durable than the patient’s natural teeth.

    The dental implant itself is a small metal screw that is inserted into the jawbone through a small incision in the gum. This implant is given 3-6 months to entirely heal and naturally fuse with the surrounding bone and tissue. Once the healing process is completed, Dr. McClure attaches a porcelain crown to the implant that has been specifically designed for the patient with the size, shape, and shade that they prefer. Together as a unit, the dental implant and artificial crown mimic the structure of a natural tooth root and crown. Once completed, the new dental implant looks nearly identical to a natural tooth.

    Besides restoring full function and aesthetics, dental implants also help preserve the patient’s jawbone that otherwise would continue to resorb without any tooth root structure present. Similar to a muscle that atrophies without use, the jaw bone and gum tissues and ligaments shrink after permanent tooth loss, which can cause other surrounding teeth to fall out as well. Dental implants help preserve the integrity of the patient’s bone and gums for life.

    In addition to dental implants, Dr. Michael McClure provides patients with a variety of other general and cosmetic dental services to help them achieve their best smiles. Dr. McClure is a preferred Invisalign dentist in Jacksonville, FL and has helped hundreds of patients achieve straighter smiles without braces. He is also an experienced Jacksonville, FL sedation dentist to help patients have a comfortable, enjoyable dental visit.
