7 out of 10 adults ages 35 to 44 have already lost one tooth due to accident, gum disease, or a failed root canal, according to the American Dental Association. By the time Americans reach their mid-70s, 1 out of 4 has lost all permanent teeth.
Before dental implants, the only alternatives were removable dentures or a fixed bridge, which can affect adjacent healthy teeth and often needs to be replaced after several years.
Dental implants are growing in popularity because of their long-term durability. With the aging baby boom population and advances in techniques, dental implants have exploded in use.
Dr. Ken Gasper of Aesthetic Dentistry by Design has invested in the advanced technology of coDiagnostiX® CT scans and 3D software. With the coDiagnostiX system, Dr. Gasper can plan a computer-guided implant process that is more precise than ever.
The resulting implant placement procedure is highly accurate and minimally invasive, which is an immense benefit for our patients’ overall oral health in the short-term and for many years to come.
