Dental Implants: Something To Sink Your Teeth Into
Hello, dental devotees! Today in the Crown Council dental blog we get to talk about something really exciting: sharks! Shark teeth have been a subject of fascination for centuries.
Did you know that sharks lose an average of one tooth per week? But never fear: in a shark’s lifetime, it will literally grow thousands of new teeth, constantly replacing old ones. A shark can have hundreds of teeth (the famous great white shark has up to 300), arranged in several rows.
We poor human folk only get two sets of teeth – our baby teeth, or primary teeth; and our permanent teeth. Permanent teeth begin to replace primary teeth around age 6, and the last of the permanent teeth are the wisdom teeth, which tend to erupt in late adolescence to early adulthood.
What does that mean for you when you lose a permanent tooth due to accident, injury, or decay? Do you have to live with an open gap in your smile?
We’re lucky to live in a time when dental procedures to replace missing teeth are better than ever before. Search for a Crown Council dental implants dentist near you to discuss getting a dental implant.
Dental implants have advanced dramatically over the years. This highly successful procedure is done regularly by dentists and prosthodontists, and it has over a 95% success rate. Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth, and they feel, look, and perform just like natural teeth. They are strong and easy to maintain. You can even use dental implants to anchor a bridge or a denture.
With a dental implant, no one will even know you lost a tooth – and you might forget, yourself!
Contact your Crown Council dentist today to discuss whether getting a dental implant or implant-anchored dentures is right for you.
So sink your teeth into something new – consider a dental implant at your Crown Council dentist.
