As Americans continue to struggle to afford trips to their dental health professional, many people may find themselves in need of dentures or dental implants. According to a recent article in Enterprise News, about 69 percent of Americans aged 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth due to accident, a failed root canal, tooth decay or gum disease.
The news source recommended that these individuals look into dental implants if they have lost teeth, as an alternative to dentures.
"In addition to looking and feeling more like natural teeth, dental implants last longer than fixed bridges and removable dentures, which last about 15 years. Implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth," according to the information provider.
Dental Economics also recently published an article on dental implants. According to the news source, dentists should enhance their practice by offering dental implants, because if they are not doing so they are not staying up-to-date with modern dentistry.
Although dental implants have come a long way, it's still best not to need them in the first place. This is why people should be practicing proper dental health habits by brushing and flossing regularly, as well as visiting the dentist twice a year, to avoid losing any teeth.
