Dental Prosthetics in Prosper, TX
Adult Tooth Loss in America
While experts can debate the various factors contributing to adult tooth loss – Is it poor dental hygiene? An overabundance of sugar in the average American diet? — it remains a serious threat to America’s overall well-being. According to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, you have a nearly 70% chance of losing a permanent tooth by your 44th birthday. Even more alarming, over a quarter of Americans will have lost all their natural teeth by the time they turn 75. Whether that tooth loss occurs as a result of gum disease, tooth decay or accidental injury, it can lead to serious problems with your oral and systemic health.
Dental Prosthetics and Your Well-Being
Missing one or more teeth can lead to a range of problems, from inhibited speaking ability to reduced chewing function. Additionally, missing teeth can damage your self-esteem and hinder your willingness to smile and laugh in social situations. Taken together, these problems can result in a general decline in quality and enjoyment of life. However, replacing those missing teeth with a durable and lifelike dental prosthetic can restore your health and self-confidence.
