ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Did you know that Georgia ranks among the top 10 states in the U.S. in percentage of adults who have lost six or more teeth in their lives?

The Commonwealth Fund has compiled the list and based their findings on a number of factors. The organization assessed states on 42 indicators of health care access, quality, costs and outcomes from 2007 to 2012 to determine their findings.

The U.S. average on percentage of residents who lost six or more teeth is 10 percent. Nearly a quarter (23 percent) of all residents in West Virginia have lost at least six teeth. See where Georgia ranks in the slideshow above.
