However, one in three Americans did not follow this advice last year. Often, it is believed that you do not need to schedule an appointment until after a problem has developed. However, if you are not having a regular appointment, you are allowing issues to occur that could have otherwise been prevented.

Missing teeth can occur from a sports injury, accident, or even aging—although losing your teeth can strike at any time. Whatever the reason or time of your missing teeth, opting to not replace them immediately has undesirable side effects.

Missing teeth can cause you to have difficulties eating, communicating, and look much older than you actually are. Luckily, the practice of Dr. Ellis L. Ramsey, DDS offers a revolutionary tooth replacement option: dental implants in Lake Highlands.
