If you are among the 120 million Americans who have lost at least one tooth, your confidence and quality of life have likely declined. Besides an incomplete smile, there is a larger complication brewing beneath the surface. You are slowly losing bone in your jaw, which can result in more tooth loss. Thankfully, you can replace your missing teeth and preserve your jawbone using an effective solution.

Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that restores lost root structure. This offers patients numerous benefits, and replacement teeth supported by dental implant posts are the best way to maintain optimal oral health.
