In the course of a lifetime, nearly everyone will lose at least one adult tooth. Most people will lose about 12 teeth before they die.
I believe it is essential for everyone to know that you should consider dental implants before you lose a tooth. Too often I’ve seen patients who decided to wait to deal with the loss of a tooth, resulting in bone deterioration that caused greater complications and costs for restoration, especially with dental implants.
So, my goal with this post is to get the word out – if you’re having a tooth extraction, plan on replacing the tooth with a dental implant, from a credentialled dental implant expert, right away.
