American Academy of Implant Dentistry Announces that August is Dental Implant Month
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 Centers for Disease Control NHANES Study, prosthodontists estimate that more than 120 million Americans are missing one or more teeth, and 35-36 million Americans are missing all of their teeth in one or both jaws.
Dental implants have become an integral part of dentistry. Now, almost every patient who needs to have teeth replaced should be given the option of having dental implants. Dental implants have passed the test of time. Once they are placed in the jaw, they can last a lifetime.
