About Dental Implants


Are Dental Implants for You?


According to the statistics posted on the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons website, “69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal or tooth decay. Furthermore, by age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth.”

The history of dental implants dates back 1,350 years when archeologists unearthed some Mayan burial sites in the 1930s that provided a piece of a mandible that showed that a dental implant had been used. It wouldn’t be until the 1980s that dental implants really came into vogue as more and more folks realized that the permanency of the dental implant was really a painless endeavor and as an alternative to removable dentures the benefits are many.

Dental implants are now the most advanced solution for many who have missing teeth and provide for an eating, smiling and speaking experience that is second to none because there is no risk of loose or ill-fitting bridgework. Since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth to support them, they can oftentimes be more tooth-saving to your other teeth. The dental implant is inserted directly into your jaw bone and should only be done by an experienced dentist.
