Dental Implantology: A Winning Pitch
Many people are by now aware of the extraordinary benefits of dental implants over legacy approaches such as dentures. Permanence, stability, strength and vastly improved appearance are among the most cited advantages. But not everyone has gotten the message yet.
Articles such as this one help to clear the air and give would-be implant recipients a clear look at the pros and cons of their options. Our favorite passage comes near the end, and includes some of the most important statistical support for dental implantology:
Dental implants, which have a success rate of up to 98% according to scientific literature, are the replacement teeth of the future. Up to 3 million Americans have dental implants, and another 500,000 get them each year. Consequently, the U.S. dental implant and prosthetic market is projected to reach $6.4 billion by 2018.
