Do You Have Missing Teeth? Dental Implants May Be Your Best Option

Cosmetic dentistry procedures

If you are concerned about replacing missing teeth–a problem that affects 30 million U.S. citizens (as reported by the AAID)–you may want to consider cosmetic dental surgery administered by a private dentist who specializes in dental implants procedures.

In fact, IBIS World reports that there about 5,847 practices specializing in cosmetic dentistry in America. Additionally, 10% of all dentists in America provide dental implants, according to the AAID.

The reason that cosmetic dental implants make so much sense for people who have missing teeth is that the procedure itself is the only cosmetic operation that protects existing bone and helps to encourage additional bone growth. Furthermore, this kind of dental makeover closely resembles the look and feel of real teeth.

But of what does a dental implant actually consist? Dental tooth implants involve a titanium piece (the implant itself), an abutment, and a ceramic crown which effectively replaces the missing tooth in question. The AAID reports that about 15 million adults in the United States received either crowns or bridges to replace teeth.
