More than two-thirds of adults between the ages of 35 and 44 years have lost at least one tooth over their lifetime because of an injury, tooth decay, or gum disease. By the time 24 percent of these adults reach the age of 74 years, they have lost all of their permanent teeth.
Todays advances inimplant dentistry in Coral Gables, FLprovide many alternatives to traditional tooth replacement methods such as fixed bridges and dentures. Removable dentures often lead to bone loss and may affect facial structures. Poorly fitting dentures can make clicking sounds when the wearer eats and speaks. Fixed bridges require grinding down neighboring teeth, which can make otherwise healthy teeth more susceptible to damage. Still, these tooth replacement options may be a viable solution when you undergo a tooth extraction or have missing teeth.
