Dental Implantology: On the Move

We have discussed the advantages of dental implants in this space before. We have typically focused on a few key aspects: dental implants are long-lasting restorative, and cosmetically flawless.

But no matter how many times we think that the word has been sufficiently spread, we hear of another emerging market where dental implantology remains exotic and unknown. This recent article discusses explosive growth throughout Eastern Europe of late, at a rate which may be poised to match the meteoric rise of dental implants here in the U.S.

The reason for this growth may sound familiar:

Over a relatively short period, implants have become a common practice among people with missing teeth primarily due to accidents, disease, or injuries. Dental implants are mostly made of titanium and zirconium among which titanium has emerged as a choice of material for implant design within dental laboratories and dentists globally.

These safe, benign, and robust materials are driving a global market that shows no signs of cooling. There has never been a better time to brush up on your own dental surgery skills and train your staff to offer the best dental implantology options in the state.

We can help. Call us today to reserve a spot in our California implantology seminars.

Dental Implants are Built to Last

Dental implantology is growing not just because it offers an easy way to restore missing teeth, but because the implants themselves are built to last.

That is just one of the takeaways from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry’s latest infographic, which underscores the myriad benefits of implants over dentures or crowns, including this important lead-off item:

Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth. Other options can lead to bone deterioration, and may interfere with eating, smiling, speaking and other activities of everyday life.

It’s yet another good tool for explaining the ins and outs of dental implants to your patients – one which clearly distinguishes dental implants from older technologies including dentures. And it makes at least one more point that many people might not consider, namely:

Look Mom, no cavities! Cavities can’t occur in an implant-restored crown, or replacement tooth; however, you will need to visit your dentist as scheduled and clean and care for it and your gums and mouth every day, the same as you would if it were a natural tooth.

Dental implantology seminars which walk you through the best techniques, under the guidance of the most expert professionals, are an essential component to gaining knowledge and experience in this field.

When Are Dental Implants Necessary?

If you are interested in advanced training in dental implantology, you know that patients are asking about implants more than ever. As media reports continue to add glowing testimonials and expert support to the field, implantology has continued to attract greater interest.

Here at Implantology Seminars, we hear a growing number of questions about exactly when and why dental implants are recommended over other, less permanent procedures. One recent article tackled this question in some depth, starting with a nice overview of why implants are better than the alternatives:

Today however, most dental professionals would agree that replacing a missing (or soon to be missing) tooth or teeth with dental implant supported crowns or bridges is the way to go. A dental implant is like an artificial tooth root implanted in the jawbone that is capable of supporting one or more teeth. No longer do we need to rely on neighboring teeth to support either a fixed or a removable bridge. The crowns or bridges supported by dental implants are typically cemented or screw-retained so that they cannot be removed. And because the implant once again transmits the forces of chewing down to the underlying jawbone, preservation of bone volume in that area usually occurs.

The piece goes on to describe some of the early warning signs and early interventions that are likely to arise in a good candidate for dental implants, and ends with this simple rule of thumb about the value of early action:

Regardless of the cause, replacing teeth that need to be removed with dental implants as early as possible will give patients the best chance for a successful and esthetic outcome, as well as eliminate or minimize the risk of having adjacent or opposing teeth shift.
