September is Dental Implant Awareness Month, and Sedation and Implant Dentistry Irvine, along with the American Association for Implant Dentistry (AAID) are empower individuals considering dental implants through education and celebrate those who are already living a life full of smiles with their dental implants to discover “What’s your reason to smile?” More than 3 million people in the United States have dental implants. Teeth implants, which last for decades if properly cared for, are the only tooth replacement option that stimulates bone growth and prevents bone loss while protecting facial bone and healthy teeth.
“I got 4 implants in one day. I was pretty astonished at how I looked.” said Bruce Stein, a dental implant patient of Dr. Gonzales. “You feel like you get some years back. I just feel great.”
Retired school superintendent Mark Peters said “For the first time in 60 years I cold smile and feel good about myself.”
According to the AAID, there is a significant difference between “dentists who do implants” and “dental implant experts.” Dental are complex and they are not are not one size fits all. Implants have to be custom fitted to each person. They require sophisticated devices, specialized training and expertise to fit and place them properly.
The AAID celebrates Dental Implant Awareness Month each year to educate the public about dental implants and the value of turning to an AAID member for their surgery,” said AAID president David G. Hochberg, DDS. “When patients choose an AAID-credentialed dental implant dentist, they can be confident they are working with an expert who has the extensive education, training, and experience required to put them on the path to living a life full of smiles.”
