7 Interesting Dental Implant Facts

Dental Implants

Affordable dental implants are inspiring smiles all over the world. Whether you’re seeking a dental implant dentist, or you’re already reaping the benefits of the best dental implants on the market, you probably don’t know all of the following facts about the process and history of tooth implantation.

  1. Many options exist for tooth replacement, but only dental implants actually look and feel like real teeth.
  2. Implants are usually made from titanium. They replace the root of a missing tooth and serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth or crown.
  3. A dental implant cannot get a cavity, but you must still practice good oral hygiene to keep the gums around it healthy.
  4. Implants can actually preserve bone and stimulate its growth.
  5. One in four people older than 74 has lost all of their teeth. As many as 69 percent of American adults from age 35 to 44 are missing at least one tooth.
  6. Around 600 AD, the Mayans attempted to replace the tooth of a woman by hammering a piece of shell into her jaw. Fortunately, modern implants are safer and more effective.
  7. Look for a dental implant dentist who has credentials from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID). These dentists have demonstrated competence and met national education standards in implantology. With 4,000 members today, the AAID was formed in 1951 when a small group of dentists specializing in placing dental implants came together to share their knowledge.
