It has been estimated that 69 percent of Americans age 35 to 44 have at least one missing tooth, and one in four over the age of 74 have lost ALL their natural  #teeth  
Many options exist to replace missing teeth but only one – ‪#‎dental‬ implants – provides the feel, function and appearance of natural teeth. Read more about the benefits of dental implants over other treatment options.
Ancient dental implants have been traced back to around 600 AD, when tooth-like pieces of shell were hammered into the jaw of a Mayan woman. Thank goodness for contemporary dentistry!
Contemporary dental implants, which have been in use for many decades, have been proven safe and effective.
Usually made of titanium, a dental implant replaces the root of the missing tooth root and provides a strong and sturdy foundation for one or more replacement teeth or crowns. 
Teeth restored with dentalimplants ‬ can't get cavities! An replacement tooth, or crown, doesn't decay like a natural tooth, but you still must brush, floss and care for it and your surrounding natural teeth and gums in the same manner as natural teeth. Regular professional cleanings and dental check-ups also are essential.
Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves and stimulates natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss.

Berkeley Lake Dental's Patient Getting All Four Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Surprising Facts About #WisdomTeeth:

According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, an estimated 85% of wisdom teeth will eventually need to be removed. This can be because the teeth are impacted; the area is difficult to reach, thus difficult to clean, leading to bacteria and infection.

35% of the population is born without wisdom teeth. Researchers debate whether this is evolution or culture. 

Humans no longer need these teeth for survival; however, some researchers have looked into the link between how different cultures use their jaws, and whether or not they have teeth. For example, in parts of East Asia, it’s more common to find people without wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth are the only teeth not formed in the womb. Because most people opt to have surgery to remove their wisdom teeth, researchers are looking into ways to prevent their growth altogether.

Japanese researchers found in 2008 that induced pluripotent stem cells can be harvested from wisdom teeth. Thus, wisdom teeth can be saved for potential need for stem cells later in life.

When there isn’t enough room for a tooth to enter the mouth fully, it is called "impacted." If left it may damage neighboring teeth, or become infected due to the difficulty in reaching and cleaning that area of the mouth and gums.
