What are dental implants?

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!

What if someone has lost many teeth?

If you have lost many teeth, the Harrell Dental Implant Center can provide several options. Waiting too long to consider dental implants can lead to significant bone loss. Bone grafting is an option for some patients. Dr. Robert Harrell encourages patients to seek treatment as soon as possible.
