According to one study, by the age 50, Americans would have lost an average of 12 teeth. Missing teeth can eventually ruin a smile, creating bigger spaces between teeth, allowing teeth to drift into places that are just not right. As we age, missing teeth will make chewing difficult and most people will opt for less healthy foods. Dentures are the least desirable replacement choice for missing teeth, and 1 study has confirmed that dentures cause even more tooth loss sooner than later.
Digital scanning, 3D imaging, virtual treatment planning are the most currently available technology of today. It creates a precise map of your jaw and will assist in working around all the vulnerable areas of the mouth. All this is done with a simple scan.
