Age and Lifestyle Factors Play an Important Role in Tooth Health
- More than 20% of adults older than 65 years of age have lost all their teeth
- 90% of patients who have lost all their teeth choose dentures for tooth replacement
- Your diet and lifestyle are linked to your risk of developing oral health issues, including missing teeth
- Approximately 178 million people in the United States are missing at least one tooth
Our doctors at Absolute Smile in Philadelphia and Bucks County may recommend dental implants to replace your missing teeth. If you are missing a single tooth or several teeth in the upper or lower jaw, we can fuse a dental implant to the jaw bone and replace the tooth structure with natural-looking tooth restoration.
Dental Implants are a Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth
We often recommend dental implants as a tooth restoration procedure for patients with one or more missing teeth. While a bridge or partials offer numerous benefits, dental implants are a proven method for restoring missing teeth and have a high success rate with proper placement.
The base of the implant stimulates the jawbone, so the bone does not resorb. We can recreate the appearance of the teeth with a natural-looking crown.
