Most people will lose adult teeth during their lifetime. In the U.S., about 69 percent of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth due to accident, a failed root canal, tooth decay or gum disease. By age 74, at least 26 percent of adults have lost permanent teeth.
According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, dental implants are almost always the best option for replacing them. In the past, replacements included removable dentures that rest on the gum line or fixed bridges anchored to adjacent teeth. But with dental implants, teeth are surgically implanted in the gums, giving replacement teeth a more natural feel and appearance.
In addition to looking and feeling more like natural teeth, dental implants last longer than fixed bridges and removable dentures, which last about 15 years. Implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth.
Dr. 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.
