According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, it is highly likely to experience tooth loss between the ages of 35 to 44 due to an accident, disease, tooth decay, or other factors. In fact, around 69% of adult Americans go through the loss of at least one permanent tooth. At the age of 74, about 26% of adults have lost all their teeth, which makes dental implant surgery as necessary and widespread as knee and hip replacements. It's clear that tooth loss is a prevalent problem, making dental implants a popular and reliable solution for millions of Americans.

Why Are Dental Implants so Popular?
There are many reasons why patients may seek out dental implants, but the most attractive feature for many is that it is a long-term and permanent solution. Many dental prosthetics sit over the gum line to fill in the gap of lost teeth, but dental implants are surgically implanted to fuse with the jaw bone, so it never shifts or falls out. This tooth replacement procedure helps stimulate bone growth and prevents tooth shifting, two main dental health issues when there is a space in your smile.
Dental implants feel and act like your natural teeth, and no one will ever know they are not. Modern dental technology also allows us to shape, size, and shade your new tooth down to the smallest details.
