Restoration of your smile begins with an affordable Philadelphia prosthodontist at Penn Dental Medicine!

Did you know that Americans are in need of prosthodontists more than ever before? Below are some staggering statistics about Americans’ smiles:

  • 35 million Americans are missing all of their teeth
  • 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth
  • Edentulism largely affects the geriatric and low-income population
  • The ratio of the edentulous (toothless) in the geriatric population is 2:1
  • 23 million of the geriatric population is completely edentulous (toothless)
  • 12 million of the geriatric population are edentulous in one arch
  • The partially-edentulous population will increase to 200 million in the next 15 years
  • Tooth loss is caused by decay, gum disease, injury, wear and tear, and cancer
  • 90% of the edentulous population use dentures

While these numbers are shocking, there is hope for those that want to revitalize their oral health and smile.
