According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, almost 70 percent of adults between the ages of 35 and 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal or tooth decay. Furthermore, by age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth. These are amazing statistics about the status oral health. Twenty years ago, these patients would have had no alternative but to employ a fixed bridge or removable denture in order to restore their ability to eat, speak clearly and smile. Fortunately, today there is a viable option for patients who are missing permanent teeth – dental implants. Rather than solutions resting on the gum line like removable dentures, or destroying adjacent teeth to anchor fixed bridges, dental implants are long-term replacements that truly function like your natural teeth. In addition, they preserve your underlying jaw bone structure.
Whether you are a young, middle-aged or an older adult; whether you need to replace one tooth, several teeth, or all your teeth, there is a high probability there is a dental implant solution to your situation. Contact us for your complimentary consultation.
