Dental Implant Awareness Month: What’s Your Reason to Smile?
September Is Dental Implant Awareness Month
Dental Implant Awareness Month is brought to us by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID),
“Dental implants can inspire newfound life and confidence. When you see the look and smile on someone’s face, it’s truly incredible.”
– AAID President, Natalie Wong, DDS, FAAID, DABOI/ID.
To celebrate Dental Implant Awareness Month, the AAID Foundation is raising money for its Wish A Smile Program.
Under the program, AAID-credentialed dentists provide free services to individuals who are financially disadvantaged, have a congenital defect, and are in need of dental implants.
Why Dental Implants?
Oral health is overall health, when you’re teeth and gums are healthy, you’re healthier too.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth.
A missing tooth can affect how your jaw aligns, how you talk, and what foods you can eat. In addition, as you rely more on your remaining teeth, you increase the chance they will erode prematurely or incur damage.
Missing teeth are unhealthy.
Dentists and oral surgeons consider dental implants one of the healthiest ways to replace one or more missing teeth – if you are a good candidate.
Who makes a good candidate for dental implants?
A good candidate for dental implants is anyone who is missing one or more teeth, or who is unhappy with their dentures.
According to board-certified oral surgeon, Dr. Karl Maloney in Branchburg, NJ,
“Age is usually not a factor. However, smoking, diseases such as diabetes, and a history of radiation therapy to the area, have been shown to lower the success rate of implant placement.”
