As the aging population life expectancy continues to increase, tooth loss that can occurred with increased aging changes, like decreased salivary flow can have long term effects of the facial structure around the upper and lower jaws. These changes happen when teeth are lost and not replaced, which also leads to bone loss. With continued bone loss, the facial structure begins to change, resulting in a premature aged appearance resulting in a collapse of the upper and lower face and lip support.
Implants in bone prevent further bone and loss and can provide with the teeth structure back continued support of the facial architecture.
Also predictable long term results for an implant-supported prosthesis fill the need for the youthful appearance of an aging baby boomer population.
