Tooth loss is a serious problem in the United States. Some estimate that as high as 100 million adults have lost at least one tooth. As dental implants continue to grow in popularity today, so do the misconceptions that surround them.
Dr. Whitlock understands that tooth replacement is a very real concern for the majority of American adults. Studies say more than two-thirds of middle-aged adults have lost one or more of their permanent teeth.
Do you hide your smile because you are missing one or more teeth? You are not alone. Studies say that two-thirds of adults find themselves in the same situation. Missing teeth not only impacts your self-confidence and overall appearance, but can also lead to jawbone loss and other serious health issues over time.
Dental implants continue to grow in popularity as the most effective long-term treatment for tooth loss. With no age limit on treatment, more than half a million people get one or more dental implants every year. Dr. Whitlock helps many patients every year restore the confidence of a beautiful smile with lifetime implants.
