Approximately 42% of Americans over the age of 65 are missing all of their natural teeth. Dental implants preserve the jawbone, which can prevent premature aging. Dental implants can provide great stability for a lower denture, thereby enhancing chewing ability and helping patients avoid embarrassment. In many cases, dental implants can completely eliminate the need for dentures.
