In 1960 life expectancy was 70 years. Today life expectancy is 78 years of age and getting higher. People are living longer, and this relates to more people retaining their teeth. Some of these people have ill-fitting partial dentures or complete dentures, while other have teeth that are falling that can’t be saved. All these patients may be great candidates for dental implants which will reconnect them to something they have lost or about to lose (their teeth). Consider these alarming statistics: 240 million people worldwide are missing one, few or all of their teeth.
In the USA:
1. Adults between the ages of 55-64 are missing at least 10 teeth at a rate of 69%
2. 35 million adults are missing all teeth in at least one jaw and 48 million adults are missing all teeth in both jaws.
3. By the age of 74 more than one in four senior citizens have no teeth.
4. 50% of denture wearing sufferers have dentures that don’t even fit.
5. Nearly 50% of denture sufferers are able to eat ONLY soft or mashed foods.
6. 50% of denture sufferers avoid MANY FOODS all together.
7. Indiana is the number 11th edentulous (toothless) state in the US.
For those who feel they are prisoners inside their body with ill-fitting dentures, ill-fitting partials and failing teeth from disease, decay or trauma, many others feel the same. Dr. Irfan Atcha DDS, DICOI at the Center for Implants, Sedation and Cosmetic Dentistry can help with these dental problems.
As a Dipolmate of the International Congress of the Oral Implantologists (highest distinction) and a leader in dental implants, he has the credentials and the experience that has transformed the lives of many of his patients with the miracle of dental implants with the one single tooth implant, a few teeth implants or full jaw/arch of teeth with dental implants. What once took years to accomplish can be accomplished in a day (after initial work up) with Dr. Atcha and his team. He is a leader of the All-on-4 dental implants and new teeth in one day (no bone grafting approach) which has helped hundreds of his patients that are suffering from the conditions mentioned above.
When patients lose their teeth they suffer nutritionally and emotionally as well. “Teeth loss can really lower one’s self confidence and confidence is so important to success in all areas of our lives at home, at work & in social setting,” mentions Dr. Atcha.
“Virtually all of my patients tell me after their care that they’d wish they should have done it sooner,” says Atcha.
