According to the Washington Dental Service Foundation, around 75% of adults 60 and older have only a portion of their original teeth. Millions of American’s suffer from tooth loss due to tooth decay, injury, or gingivitis. Do you suffer from these problems? The answer could be Dental Implants!
Think of a dental implant as a replacement root for your tooth. This “root” is placed into the jawbone to provide a way for your replacement tooth to be attached. The crown—or new tooth—is customized to match your natural teeth.
A cosmetic benefit of dental implants is the improvement of your physical appearance. However, an additional hygienic benefit of dental implants is that they do not decay and are virtually free from developing gum disease.
It’s important to bear in mind that the practice of implant dentistry is a compilation of expertise in planning, surgical placement, as well as fabrication of the crown itself. Consequently, finding a passionate, practiced Implant and Cosmetic Dentist is crucial.
