If you have visited us because you are dealing with tooth loss, you may find yourself feeling a blend of emotions. Many of our patients feel most strongly that they are alone in their experience and that missing teeth is quite uncommon. Before you allow yourself to feel isolated, know something very important: An open space in one’s smile is extremely common and generally easy to address. Now, for some helpful insight that will assist you in feeling much better about the state (and future) of your smile.
Did We Mention It’s Common?
Tooth loss is not just a little bit common but something that the American Academy of Implant Dentistry reports affects over 30 million people in our country every year. Ready to be even more surprised? This figure includes individuals missing at least one full arch of teeth.
Receiving Implants Is Common, Too
You might ask around and find that most of your friends don’t have implants. However, if you’ve asked only a handful of people, those aren’t really reliable statistics to go by. In addition, if you ask someone who feels as unsure about tooth loss as you, he or she might simply deny it altogether! As for the details, did you know that the number of people who have received dental implants has reached 3 million and continues to grow?
