Did you know that approximately 178 million people in America are missing at least one tooth? About 35 million Americans are missing all of their teeth due to factors such as injury, accident, genetics, and severe decay. If you are missing at least one tooth, talk to your periodontist in Newton about whether dental implants are right for you.
