Teeth in a Healthy Adult
Average Teeth Missing in US Adults
% of Seniors with No Teeth
Dental implants are the new standard of care for people with missing or broken down teeth. Patients no longer have to rely on bridges, dentures, or other removable appliances. That means that we can help anyone smile with confidence and eat comfortably.
When you’ve lost a tooth, or a tooth has been damaged beyond repair by injury or decay, you’ll need to consider your alternatives. Living without one or more of your teeth can be painful and unhealthy. It can also destroy your confidence and make you reluctant to smile or speak naturally.
Temporary or impermanent replacements, such as a bridge or dentures, can fill in the gap, but they will not look or feel the same as your natural teeth, and can cause other problems. Those problems include damage to otherwise healthy teeth that are being used to support the artificial device, bone loss, and deterioration in the bone structure of your face.
