Despite several advancements in dentistry to preserve natural teeth, tooth loss is still a prevalent problem. In fact, 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. Although bridges, crowns, and dentures have held a commonplace in dentistry to resolve the issue, over 500,000 people a year are turning to dental implants. Replacing both the root and the crown of the tooth allows them to provide an array of benefits that are possible with conventional treatments; however, they cost more. While you may pay more upfront for dental implants in Westhampton, they are more cost-effective long-term.

For literally hundreds of years, dentists relied on dentures and bridges to replace a patient’s missing teeth. But in the 1950s, dental implants became available. These prosthetics are much more lifelike replacements for missing teeth. In addition, implants are a permanent solution to tooth loss that require only the same care as natural teeth.
