Dental implants are a standard treatment for patients currently living with tooth loss, and those who need to have teeth extracted due to advanced disease or severe damage. Millions of people have already received them because they offer many benefits, including the promise of a more beautiful and healthier smile. Talk to a cosmetic dentist today to find out whether dental implants could be right for you.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you’re certainly not alone. According to the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP), more than 120 million people in the U.S. alone have at least one missing tooth. Furthermore, over 36 million Americans are missing all of their natural teeth. Tooth loss can happen due to several reasons, such as gum disease, tooth decay, traumatic injuries, and cancer. Smoking is a major contributor to tooth loss.
Fortunately, dental implants offer a solution that millions of people have already taken advantage of. Every year, dentists in the U.S. place more than five million dental implants, according to the American Dental Association (ADA).
It’s quite likely that dental implants will continue to increase in popularity. Although dentists prefer to save a patient’s natural teeth whenever possible, implants are the next best thing. Unlike dentures, which are removable and rest on top of the gum tissue, dental implants are anchored directly into the jawbone. Over time, the bone fuses to the titanium implant post. This process is known as osseointegration, and it’s responsible for the strength and permanence of the implant. In addition, because it is rooted directly in the jawbone, it helps preserve bone density.
Other reasons why dental implants are so popular include the following:
In short, they can enhance your quality of life, health, and appearance. When you receive your new dental implants, you’ll likely enjoy a boost of self-confidence.
