Dental implants are often the best treatment for missing teeth and are the closest you can get to a healthy, natural smile. They restore the ability to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk, play and enjoy all regular activities of everyday life.
According to the Centres for Disease Control NHANES Study, more than 120 million Americans are missing one or more teeth, and 35 to 36 million Americans are missing all of their teeth in one or both jaws.
The American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) has designated August as Dental Implant Month. The AAID provides information to those who are missing teeth about the various treatment options available. The AAID is home to dental implant experts, who can provide surgical, restorative or both phases of treatment. This makes the patient’s experience more seamless. A dentist’s affiliation with the AAID is a sign that he or she is devoted to improving patient lifestyles by replacing missing teeth.
