Losing your teeth causes several significant issues and has a major impact on your whole life. The most common cause of tooth loss is gum, or periodontal, disease. You may also lose teeth as a result of facial trauma or severe tooth decay. Whether the teeth fall out on their own or you need to have them extracted, tooth loss leads to issues such difficulties eating and speaking. Tooth loss impacts the quality of your smile and can have a detrimental effect on your confidence. It even impacts the health of your jawbone, leading to bone loss.

What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a modern treatment for replacing missing teeth. This treatment provides an alternative to traditional bridges and dentures. Implants consist of three components.
Types of Dental Implants
Dental implants are extremely versatile and can be used to replace any number of missing teeth from one tooth to all of your teeth.
Dental Implants and Your Jawbone
Dental implants rely on your jawbone for success. However, following tooth loss, your jawbone begins to lose mass and weaken. If you lose too much bone mass, your jaw may not be able to properly fuse to the posts or even fuse at all. This used to mean that to get dental implants; you would first have to undergo a surgical procedure known as a bone graft. The All-on-4 treatment, however, provides a way for implants to be placed without the need for additional surgery.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants provide several benefits.
Are There Any Drawbacks to Dental Implants?
