What are your options when you have one or more missing teeth? Or what about when you know you're going to need to get a tooth extracted soon? What are your best options for tooth restoration?
Some form of periodontal disease will afflict a majority of Americans at some point in their life, though far fewer come down with the most advanced forms of gum disease (called periodontitis).
Modern dental implants have numerous benefits over all other tooth restoration options, and they are becoming more and more popular with every passing year.
In decades gone by, there were relatively few options when it came to tooth restoration. There were bridges and dentures, and if you needed dentures, they were full or partial - and that was about it.
Some half a million US adults get one or more dental implants installed every single year. And that number is growing steadily as more and more dental patients realize the value of implants as compared to other options like dentures and bridges.
