Dental implants are an increasingly common way to restore missing teeth as they are a permanent resolution to fill the space. With more than 30 million Americans missing all of their teeth in one or both jaws, implant placement has increased annually by 500,000. While implants are very beneficial and offer numerous benefits when compared to dentures, many run into a certain challenge—finding placement and restoration under one roof.

Now, you don’t have to deal with the headache and hassle because Dr. Kodish from the Kodish Group offers placement and restoration under one roof.

Dental practitioners have increased emphasis on preventive screenings and treatment to maintain oral health, but some estimates indicate that upwards of 70% of U.S. adults have some form of periodontal (gum) disease. According to two recent studies, the severe form of gum disease may have an even more concrete connection to heart disease, and tooth loss caused by periodontal disease may just be the most likely indicator of heart disease related to gum health.

When braces were first offered, all orthodontic work was considered cosmetic dentistry. As years passed, correcting certain malocclusions (dental misalignments) was considered necessary. This included especially problematic over, under, and crossbite that impeded natural speech and chewing capabilities. Eventually, dentists noticed that patients with straighter teeth tended to have healthier smiles and encounter fewer problems with tooth decay. At this point, traditional braces were considered non-cosmetic. It’s no secret that straighter teeth look better, but the surprising truth is that they are actually healthier. Call the dentist Fort Lauderdale residents rely on, Kodish Dental Group, to find out more about orthodontic treatments to straighten out your smile.
