More people are seeing the benefits of cosmetic dentistry. According to a report by Technavio, the global oral hygiene market is expected to grow steadily at a rate of about 4% in the next four years. The study covers the current and future prospects of the global oral hygiene market for 2016-2020. According to Abhay Sinha, a lead analyst at Technavio for health and wellness research, “The increase in overall awareness about health and hygiene has also led to an increase in demand for premium products, even among men. Premium products incorporate organic components that are safer than traditional oral care or hygiene products. Improved markets and increased disposable incomes will boost the demand for premium oral hygiene products in the future.”

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, approximately 99% of people believe that a smile is the most important social asset. The desire to have white teeth compels consumers to buy teeth whitening products. Previously, approaches to improve the appearance of teeth were limited to straightening crooked teeth but now there are advanced whitening products that enhance the appearance of teeth by removing stains and treating discolorations. The high adoption of these products has paved the way for cosmetic dentistry, which comprises a variety of services and procedures. These include bleaching, bonding (tooth-colored material used to fill in gaps or change the color of teeth), contouring and reshaping of the teeth, and placement of veneers, crowns, and inlays, all of which can improve your dental health and your smile.

Are you embarrassed to take photos because of a missing tooth? Missing teeth are embarrassing and damaging to your long-term health. Replacing them with implants can improve your confidence, your smile, and ability to chew. According for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 120 million Americans are missing one or more teeth, and approximately 36 million people are missing all of their teeth in one or both jaws. The technological advances in implant dentistry have made it possible for people with missing teeth to maintain the life they would as with natural teeth.

 

Not utilizing implant dentistry not only negatively impacts your appearance, but also the health and stability of your other teeth. Open spaces where teeth should be causes teeth to shift and move, eventually leading to more tooth loss. Dental implants have revolutionized dentistry by offering a much more stable and natural-looking replacement for missing teeth and can be utilized for single or multiple missing teeth in a variety of different ways.

 

What is implant dentistry? A dental implant is a titanium post that simulates the root of a natural tooth and can support a crown, bridge or overdenture. They are durable and can last a lifetime when properly cared for with regular dental care, such as brushing, flossing and routine check-ups. They can also improve your speech. Unlike dentures, dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip. They also increase your comfort because they become part of you, eliminating the discomfort of removable dentures.

 

Dental implants are becoming the optimum treatment choice for many adults that have lost permanent teeth because they provide the same function as a natural tooth root. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, an estimated three million Americans have undergone dental implant procedures with a long term success rate of over 95%.
