From the simplest bacteria all the way up the ladder to you, as a member of the most advanced group of life forms on earth – humanity, everything is evolving. Take yourself for example. You once couldn’t talk or walk. And then, through careful nurturing, natural maturation and practice, you were soon able to easily do all these things and much more. You evolved. The same process has happened with oral health care. What used to be primitive science has become a sophisticated modality for restoring a certain quality of oral health to you. An example is dental implanting. Archeologists have found proof that this method of restorative dentistry has been in practice for thousands of years. As you continue reading, you will learn more about how dental implants have grown into what we have today.

The primary factor that appears to affect this involves low birth weights, which can indicate poor nutrition of the mother during the pregnancy. No matter the cause of the issue, your dentist offers the solutions you need for a straight smile.

As with any treatment, patients always want to consider cost beforehand so there are no surprises.
