Dentist Dunwoody: Dental Implants

dental-implants2Almost 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.[1]  Furthermore, by age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth.[2]  These are amazing statistics about the status of 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.  Also, just as important, 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.  Your implant can be placed in our office.  So what are you waiting for?  Contact us for your complimentary consultation.
