Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 03, 2014
Dr. Tal Moor, the primary dental implant Miami specialist at TM Prosthodontics, is now providing senior citizens with the option to do away with dentures forever with dental implants.
Implants are a modern day solution to missing teeth, providing more long-term benefits than dentures.
Attributed to an article about from the Advanced Institute for Oral Health, an estimated 26% of all Americans over the age of 65 are either missing one full arch or all their teeth.
The statistic is not so surprising when considering how medical treatments and technology advancements continue to increase life expectancy. As life spans continue rising, teeth (much like the rest of the human body) continue deteriorating; resulting in weaker roots, outer cracking, and eventually becoming discolored.
Years ago replacing teeth with dentures was the only solution.
Throughout the centuries, dentistry for the elderly primarily consisted of removing decaying teeth and replacing them with false teeth. In fact, a study in 2000 found that 35.4 million Americans (17% of the population) had dentures. By 2020 researchers predict 37.9 Americans will have dentures.
Today people of all ages have better options to replace areas of the mouth where teeth have been extracted.
Dental implants, unlike dentures, provide an actual replacement to missing teeth.
They are secured into the jawbone by tiny titanium posts, serving as an anchor for a dental crown. Over the course of a few weeks, the implanted post will begin to bond with the jawbone, preventing any possibility of sliding or falling out of the mouth, like dentures can.
Dental replacements are long-term solutions which look, feel and function like natural teeth and require less maintenance.
