Adults can have up to 32 teeth. Since most people will have their wisdom teeth removed, that still leaves 28 teeth for most people. Yet, the average American adult between the ages of 20 and 64 has 26.9 teeth, according to the National Institutes of Health.
In other words, the average American is missing at least one tooth.
With that in mind, our dentist office in New Albany, IN, wants you to know that you have options for replacing your lost teeth. We recommend dental implants as part of most teeth replacements.
We’ve also put together a short quiz to help you learn more about your replacement options.
