Missing teeth make speaking normally difficult, eating such a trial that food loses its pleasure, and smiling so embarrassing you would rather hide than socialize. You aren’t alone. According to the American College of Prosthodontics, “More than 36 million Americans do not have any teeth, and 120 million people in the U.S. are missing at least one tooth. These numbers are expected to grow in the next two decades.” Worse, the ACP expects the number of edentulous patients to increase in the next 15 years to more than 200 million individuals. And right now, 90% of people who have lost teeth wear a prosthetic such as full or partial dentures, solutions that can be uncomfortable and look unnatural.
