For a variety of reasons including tooth decay and poor dental hygiene, the loss of a tooth without proper treatment can contribute to longer term overall health problems: a depressed immune system, an increased risk of serious oral inflammation, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pregnancy complications, even dementia and respiratory diseases. To prevent the decaying of gums and other issues, a dental implant may be needed. A dental implant serves as an artificial substitute for the root of a lost tooth.
Dental implants have been a normal part of dentistry for more than three decades, and the procedure is regarded to be extremely safe. At All Family Dental & Braces, our team of specialists have years of experience performing the procedure, and the result is a high-quality, natural-looking implant that will last for a long time. For the majority of patients who are in good health, there’s almost no risk of any major complications or problems with the dental implant procedure.
