One Of The Worst Things You Can Do With Tooth Loss Or Missing Teeth…
Denying that you have tooth loss or will need tooth replacement options of some kind can have disastrous effects. With tooth loss comes the inevitable structural problems to the jaw. Losing a tooth isn’t just a condition you endure, it is a preexisting condition which can lead to major oral problems including a sunken jaw over time. The most important thing to do is to get information and map out some path for good dental health.

As a society we are aging. Longer life coupled with a massive number of people over the age of 55 mean new territory on how to live in the golden years, or pre-golden years (some might even say…pre pre golden years). The point is we are living longer. Over time, bodies age, and body parts decline. Teeth and gums are part of that process.
Where do I begin?
