When I was a kid, one of the coolest shows on TV was MacGyver. For those not of my generation, “Mac” traveled around the world and helped people in need solve their problems. He was always there for the underdog and his methods were, whenever possible, non-violent and non-lethal. At the end of each episode, he always found himself in a challenging situation and used his brains and whatever he had on hand to get out of the predicament. He was a science nerd who could fix most anything.

A smile seems like a simple element in life — something automatic that produces good feelings. In fact, smiling is universally recognized as a sign of happiness and is our first facial expression at birth. Unfortunately, effortless smiles are often a challenge for people missing teeth. Embarrassed by their appearance, many people with missing teeth work hard not to expose their smiles by covering their mouths with their hands or forcibly keeping their lips locked. But smiling is more important to a happy life than you may realize. Smiles have surprising benefits for your health, your social connections, and even your professional life.
If you’re missing teeth, enjoying the simple things in life can be a bit more challenging. Do you find yourself hiding your smile or laughing less? Do you have trouble eating your favorite foods or speaking clearly? Do you dislike having your photo taken?
While there are several tooth replacement options to consider, one stands out above the rest: dental implants. They can make a world of difference in your life and help you get back to smiling confidently and enjoying life.
That’s why September is Dental Implant Awareness Month: to spread awareness about the benefits of dental implants as well as how to find a qualified expert to give you the smile you deserve.
The theme for 2021 is “Eat, laugh, live again!” It celebrates how dental implants help you return to living life to the fullest and how they drastically improve confidence and joy.
After getting dental implants, here are 5 benefits you will notice in your day-to-day life:
Whether you are considering having a dental implant as a tooth replacement option or you have had your dental implant for some time, a common question that I hear from my patients is regarding an old habit... Smoking!
Nearly one quarter of the U.S. population smokes cigarettes. Although the number of smokers is significantly less than it was 50 years ago, the question still comes up from a large portion of my patients.

If you currently have dental implants or are contemplating scheduling an initial consultation with a dental implant expert, consider this: when it comes to your oral health, cleaning your dental implants is just as important as brushing and flossing your natural teeth.
Many people are surprised to learn that they actually have been cleaning their teeth the wrong way for years, let alone their dental implants. I often hear, ”I have always done it this way.”
Cleaning teeth and dental implants the wrong way may lead to additional oral health problems.

If you’re missing one or more teeth, you know that it affects the look of your smile and your ability to eat and speak. But did you know that it also affects the health of your jawbone and your face structure?
Compared to dentures or bridges, dental implants actually stimulate your bone and help to maintain your jawbone.
In this blog I will review what happens to the jaw bone after teeth are lost, with dentures and with dental implants.
The first patient I ever did a full mouth rehabilitation surprised me when I asked her what her first meal would be after completing dental implant treatment.
She replied that for more than 35 years she had been craving a salad simply because she missed the refreshing crispness of lettuce.
Are you missing one or more teeth? You’re not alone. The average adult loses at least one permanent tooth throughout their lifetime.
That’s part of the reason why September is Dental Implant Awareness Month: to spread awareness about the benefits of dental implants and the value of choosing an AAID dentist for treatment.
This year's theme is “Healthy Mouth, Healthy You,” celebrating the many health benefits of implants. Many patients don’t realize that implants provide more than just a cosmetic fix. When you lose a tooth, several things happen that may not be immediately obvious and can have a long-term effect on your health.
Dental implants provide a healthy tooth replacement option for adults of all ages, whether you were born without a tooth or have had to have teeth removed due to injury, infection or decay.
