You’ve likely heard of dental implants but maybe the details of the process are a little hazy to you. Dental implants are treatments that both address the aesthetics of a patient’s smile while also serving as a treatment that restores the functionality of your mouth.
For instance, if you leave a lost tooth untreated, this means that your underlying bone in that area of the mouth is no longer getting stimulation from teeth shifting while chewing. If you continue not to treat a lost tooth, as a result, this can lead to bone loss and even further tooth loss down the road. Dental implants are treatments designed to help patients avoid this unfortunate event.
Tooth Loss by the Numbers
The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research asserts that adults ranging from ages 20-64 in the United States have an average of just less than 27 teeth (26.90). A normal adult mouth has 32 teeth, so this number is pretty disheartening.
However, There is a Tooth Loss Solution: The Dental Implant!
Dental implants are made of stern materials that can last a lifetime when maintained properly, providing a permanent solution for patients who experience the event of a lost tooth. We surgically place biocompatible hardware that acts as a normal tooth root does. Once your replacement has been placed on the abutment and your dental implant has healed and integrated with the jawbone, your dental implant will begin to feel and act like your other natural teeth, preventing any further tooth or bone loss.
