What is a dental implant? Heres the 411.

A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area.

Now that we've covered the basics, here are some fun facts:

- It has been estimated that 69 percent of Americans age 35 to 44 have at least one missing tooth, and one in four over the age of 74 have lost ALL their natural teeth.

- Many options exist to replace missing teeth but only one (dental implants) provides the feel, function and appearance of natural teeth.

- Teeth restored with dental implants can't get cavities! An replacement tooth, or crown, doesn't decay like a natural tooth, but you still must brush, floss and care for it and your surrounding natural teeth and gums in the same manner as natural teeth. Regular professional cleanings and dental check-ups also are essential.

- Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves and stimulates natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss.

- Usually made of titanium, a dental implant replaces the root of the missing tooth root and provides a strong and sturdy foundation for one or more replacement teeth or crowns.

- Contemporary dental implants, which have been in use for many decades, have been proven safe and effective.

Remember to brush your teeth every morning (as well as before bed and between meals) to keep them looking better than a tube of toothpaste! #dentalhumor
