San Diego, CA, Sept. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Khazian, San Diego dental implants dentist, warns patients of the consequences of tooth loss. Tooth loss is quite common among American adults. Many Americans lose one or more teeth by the time they reach their 30s because of periodontal disease, severe tooth decay, severe fractures or avulsion.

Facial bone loss is one of the most common and potentially most serious consequences that is associated with tooth loss. According to Dr. Khazian, the loss of a tooth can result in decreased jawbone density, facial collapse and premature aging.

The jawbone begins to develop while still in uterus. The development of tooth buds stimulates the development of the jawbone. If the teeth fail to develop normally or at all, the jawbone will also fail to develop. The presence of teeth continues to stimulate jawbone development and function throughout life. The bite forces maintain jaw density and volume, but when a tooth is lost, those forces are also lost. Research shows that the first year following tooth loss there is a 25 percent decrease in bone volume. As the bone deteriorates, facial bones atrophy, and the overlying muscles and skin collapse. This can result in serious psychological, functional and aesthetic issues.

Dr. Khazian offers multiple tooth restoration options that are specifically designed to restore function, improve aesthetics, boost self-confidence and preserve bone density. One tooth implant can be used to replace a single missing tooth, and multiple teeth implants can be used to replace several or even a all missing teeth. For certain candidates, it is quite possible to replace the missing teeth in just one day, the so called: "teeth in a day".
