30 million Americans are missing all of their teeth

Did you know that 30 million Americans are missing all of their teeth in one or both jaws?  In fact, 15 million Americans have dental implants and that number is growing by 500,000 a year.

So why are so many people choosing dental implants to restore their missing teeth?

The simple answer to that question is because the advantages of dental implants are many.

Dental implants allow a single missing tooth to be replaced without involving the adjacent teeth.  In this respect dental implants preserve natural tooth tissue by avoiding the need to cut down adjacent teeth for conventional bridgework.  An implant restoration appears, functions and is maintained just like your natural teeth.

Once a dental implant is placed in the jawbone it acts to preserve bone and significantly reduce bone resorption and deterioration that results in loss of jawbone height.  Preserving jawbone maintains facial contours that result in minimizing premature wrinkles.

If you have already lost your teeth and wear dentures you are aware of the challenges of having the dentures stay in place, especially on the bottom jaw.  Loose fitting dentures can be replaced with improved support, stability and retention with implant overdentures.  Implant overdentures may allow you to chew your food better and speak more clearly.

In summary people choose dental implants because by doing so they are gaining cosmetic enhancement, improved biting, chewing and speaking ability, and a restoration that is easy to clean and maintain for long-term durability.
