Are you Ready to Be Confident in your smile?

An Efficient And Cost-Effective Dental Implant Procedure

A human adult mouth should have 32 teeth – a number which decreases to 28 in adults who have had their wisdom teeth removed. More often than not, all permanent teeth have been long visible by the time a person in 21 years of age. As a child, tooth loss is often associated with financial reward, however, the prospect of losing teeth as an adult is far less enchanting. Tooth loss during adulthood can have all sorts of physical, psychological, and social effects, especially when left unattended. Adults can start losing their teeth as early as age 21 due to a myriad of different factors. Studies show that 27% of adults lose their first tooth between the ages of 21 and 30. For adults that have experienced tooth loss, there are several options to replacing the gap in your smile. The most efficient and cost effective way to replace one or more missing teeth is to undergo a dental implant procedure. Innovations in modern dentistry allow for patients to receive a permanent long-term solution that does not compromise their comfort, speech, bite quality, or the overall aesthetic of their smile.

 

 

What Causes Tooth Loss In Adults?

 

Periodontal disease, also known as bone disease, is the leading culprit that causes tooth loss in adults. While most of us are taught about the importance of good oral hygiene at an early age, most people are unaware of the consequences associated with bone disease.  When left untreated, the bacterial toxins actually start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold your teeth in place. As the gum tissue and jawbone continue to deteriorate, your teeth will become progressively looser until they fall out or are forced to be removed.

 

In addition to poor oral hygiene, eating and smoking habits can also contribute to both bone disease and overall tooth loss in adults. Globally, about 30% of people aged 65-74 have no natural teeth.

 

 

What Are Dental Implants?

 

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. By the process of osseointegration, the dental implant fuses to the jawbone, providing your new set of teeth with a stable anchor. An implant-supported tooth allows for normal function of the nerves, muscles, and joints inside of the jaw, which help it to maintain its natural dimension and density.

 

The success rate for dental implants is very high. Studies have shown dental implants to have a success rate of up to 98%, and with proper care, it is possible for dental implants to last a lifetime.  No matter how many teeth you have missing, a trained dental surgeon can restore the confidence in your smile in a single day, allowing you to walk out with a fully functional set of teeth.

 
Dental implants allow patients to have full functionality when eating, speaking, and smiling without the discomfort of removable dentures or other traditional tooth replacement options. A dental implant procedure is an efficient, and cost-effective way to permanently restore the confidence you have in your teeth.
