An estimated 178 million adult Americans are missing at least one of their natural teeth, and some forty million more are missing all of them. Those are staggering numbers – and a problem best addressed with dental implants, like those available at Green Dentistry in San Francisco.
The reasons for all that tooth loss rainge from decay or gum disase, to trauma. Even more distressing is that the rate of total tooth loss increases as people age.
Dental implants are 100% biocompatible titanium posts that are embedded into the jaw. They gradually fuse with the bone to become a solid support for artificial teeth.
Whether it’s a single tooth or a full dental arch, implant-supported teeth look and function like natural teeth. Just as important, they act like tooth roots to stimulate the surrounding tissue, promoting healthy bone and gum tissue.
At Green Dentistry in San Francisco we offer single-tooth dental implants and All-on-4 implant dentures. Patients in Sebastapol, Menlo Park, and all over the Peninsula are enjoying their benefits. Give our office a call to schedule an appointment today!
