AAID: August is Dental Implant Month

by Dental Tribune America

NEW YORK, N.Y., USA: Dental implants are often the best treatment for missing teeth and are the closest you can get to a healthy, natural smile, according to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID). Implants restore the ability to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk, play and enjoy all regular activities of everyday life.

According to the Centers for Disease Control National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, more than 120 million Americans are missing one or more teeth, and 35-36 million Americans are missing all of their teeth in one or both jaws.

AAID has designated August as Dental Implant Month. The AAID provides information about various treatment options available to those who are missing teeth, and the AAID is home to dental implant experts, who can provide surgical, restorative or both phases of treatment. A dentist’s affiliation with the AAID is a sign that he or she is devoted to improving patient lifestyles by replacing missing teeth, the AAID asserts.

In addition to providing valuable information about dental implants (available on aaid-implant.org), members of the AAID will be hosting events and activities in their local communities during August for those interested in learning more about options to improve their lifestyles by replacing missing teeth.

Founded in 1951, the AAID asserts it was the first organization in the United States dedicated to developing and improving dental implants. Today, after 65 years, the AAID continues to be regarded as a leading organization of dentists devoted to providing dental implant treatment solutions.
