Why should someone consider dental implants?
One of the most important reasons to consider dental implants is that patients can begin to lose bone once even a single tooth is lost. Once teeth disappear, bone stimulation reduces and bone can disappear rapidly. Over the course of two years, as much as 50 percent of jaw bone can disappear. Dental implants will stabilize the bone and prevent bone loss!
