Did you know that approximately 120 million Americans are currently missing at least one tooth, according to data released by the American College of Prosthodontists? If you think that’s surprising, consider the fact that more than 36 million Americans do not have any remaining natural teeth at all, according to the same source. If you have lost all or most of your teeth, you may think that dentures are your only viable tooth replacement option. However, you may be a good candidate for TeethToday® dental implants, which are permanent dental implants that provide immediate function.
What Are TeethToday® Implants?
TeethToday® implants are designed for patients who have lost multiple teeth and have limited jawbone density. The reliable system only uses four implants, which are placed directly in the jawbone at strategic points. Patients who receive the TeethToday® system benefit from a tooth replacement option that has a 98.5% success rate. If you have never heard of this system before, rest assured that it has been around for more than 10 years and has beautified smiles and restored dental functionality for many patients.
Is the TeethToday® System Right for You?
The TeethToday® system isn’t ideal for everyone, so it is important to talk to your periodontist and undergo a thorough examination to find out if it’s the right solution for your tooth replacement needs. Drs. Tom and Mark McCawley often recommend TeethToday® treatments for patients who have lost a significant amount of their jaw bone density and do not want to undergo bone grafting procedures. The system is also recommended for patients who have trouble eating or speaking because of multiple missing teeth. TeethToday® not only makes the best use of existing bone volume, but it also helps achieve bone stabilization by stimulating the bone immediately around the implants.
