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 million 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.
In addition to valuable information about dental implants that is available on aaid-implant.org, members of the AAID will be hosting events and activities in their local communities for those interested in learning more about their options to improve their lifestyles by replacing mission teeth.
