Benefits of Dental Implants in Denver over Other Restoration Options
Did you know that about a quarter of the country’s senior population is totally toothless? Aside from that fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also estimates that about “1 out of 20 middle-aged adults are missing all their teeth.” Meanwhile, the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research offers another interesting fact: “Adults age 20 to 64 have an average of 24.92 remaining teeth.” Conventionally, dentures and bridges were used to replace missing teeth. However, a growing number of patients now opt for revolutionary and permanent dental implants. In fact, according to a 2006 report, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry estimates that US dentists have performed more than 5.5 million dental implants. This number has certainly grown since then.
