Dental Implants Continue to Soar

The basic value proposition of our award-winning dental implant seminars is twofold: you get valuable CE credits, and advanced training in the hottest sector of our industry.

Now new figures have been released which testify to that second part – the explosive growth of dental implantology in the U.S. and abroad. Here’s the precis:

The global dental implants market is expected to be USD 6.81 billion by 2024, based on a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Rising demand for tooth (or teeth) replacement has provided good growth potential to the market. Growing number of dental injuries owing to road accidents and sport injuries are also considered as some of the major factors favoring demand of implants.

To grab a piece of this growing pie, you must position yourself as an expert in the field. One or two classes can show you the basics, but a complete course of study is far more valuable as you differentiate yourself as a specialist.

Implantology Seminars offers the best instruction, hands-on training, and demonstrations in California for dental implants. As more people engage with this technology for aesthetic or reconstructive purposes, that market will only continue to expand.

Get on board today.

Show Your Patients Why Dental Implants Matter

Dental implantology is the most effective way to replace missing teeth, and the most durable fix for many patients in search of a brighter and more convenient smile.

But understanding the mechanics of dental implantology isn’t always easy for lay people – and even when it’s explained clearly, the process can sound a bit…medieval. Often when they hear about screws and anchors, people’s immediate reaction is horror instead of enthusiasm.

That’s why having resources such as this one can be a boon for your implantology practice. In clear language and simple illustrations, the page explains the hows and whys of dental implantology – all in terminology that sounds promising and inviting.

Learning how to plan and execute dental implantology techniques through our implantology seminars is merely half the battle. The other half is making that pitch to your patients. For the best of both worlds, let us help you grow your dental implant practice in California today.

Dental Implantology is Essential for Your Practice

Dental implantology offers patients options they would never get otherwise. People who are severely edentulous through disease or trauma can today recover a full smile in a matter of days.

One recent article summed up the paradigm shift that dental implants have ushered in, noting that training in this emerging field is still hard to find:

“Implant technique is not taught in the dental colleges at the undergraduate level and the dentists get trained by the senior dentists who gained expertise in the field at the study clubs of ISOI and the other programmes it organises”, Dr Shetty said.

Implantology Seminars offers outstanding dental CE courses for every part of dental implantology, from beginning concepts through advanced techniques. Students can practice on live models and witness in-person demonstrations, getting swift answers to all their toughest questions along the way.

If your practice wants to stay at the head of the pack with the latest technologies, you need to learn this skill. Sign up for one of our popular implantology seminars today.

An Introduction to Dental Implants

Explaining the various steps of dental implantology, from site preparation to bone growth to crowns, can be difficult. The most confusing step is that middle one – just how is new bone generated in the jaw? – and it’s where many patients start to lose the plot and wonder how this process actually works.

This simple explanation is a welcome primer, and an easy way to explain the procedure without drowning your patients in jargon:

Next, the bone around the implant heals in a process called osseointegration. What makes an implant so strong is that the bone actually grows around it and holds it in place. Osseointegration means “combines with the bone” and takes time. Some patients might need to wait until the implant is completely integrated, up to several months, before replacement teeth can be attached to the implant. Other patients can have the implants and replacement teeth placed all in one visit.

If you’d like to learn the best techniques for osseointegration, and the full suite of skills necessary to install your own dental implants, stick with the experts. Sign up with Implantology Seminars today.

Getting Started with Dental Implantology

It is a common question nowadays: where can I learn dental implantology safely and effectively? One recent article took up the question and explored some of the most common options for dentists looking to expand their practice.

As the author notes, a great dental implantology course should teach more than just the basic mechanics of installing teeth; it should cover the full breadth of medical issues that may arise, including some important questions:

Dental implants can be a complicated decision tree. When do I use one technique over another? Do I need to provisionalise and how should I do this? Should I immediately place, or load, or both and what is the advantage to doing this? Do I have enough bone? Do I really have enough bone and what are my soft tissues going to do later? How do I handle cases that require bone and tissue augmentation? What is my occlusal scheme and is it stable? What are the pitfalls and risks of a certain technique? Why did this implant work but that one fail? What makes one system better than another? Why did this screw loosen? Why did this crown or abutment fracture? Do I screw retain or cement? Do I link implants or not?

At Implantology Seminars, this is music to our ears. Our courses are expressly designed to teach theory and medicine alongside the hands-on dental training, arming our professional students with the knowledge they need to provide superior implant services across the board.

Dental Implants Solve Lifelong Problems

The buzz surrounding dental implants show no signs of abating, years after the technology was first approved for human use. Today a growing cadre of dental professionals consider dental implants the gold standard for combating tooth and bone loss, and restoring patients’ sense of confidence.

As one article recently put it, dental implants offer several advantages:

  • Implants can restore, stimulate and improve dental bone health.
  • Dental implants are more comfortable and functional than traditional dentures. No fears of slipping or poorly fitted dentures — implants are the next best thing to your own natural teeth!
  • Help to restore facial definition and improve your smile and your self-confidence.

These are fundamental advantages that surpass anything else in dental surgery, which is why dental implants offer so much hope to patients who have struggled with crowns and dentures in the past. The Web is filled with accounts of patients whose dental implants restored their ability to eat, speak and live with confidence – moving stories that go far beyond the typical medical case study.

If you want to give your patients better solutions to the issues that have plagued them for a lifetime, please check out our full implantology seminar catalog here. You won’t find a more comprehensive approach to dental hands-on training in Southern California.

The Case for Implantology CE Courses

Every once in a while, an outside observer makes your case so well that one hardly needs to add a word. That’s what happened recently when one dental columnist published a manifesto of sorts explaining why dental professionals should be investing in continuing education for dental implantology. To wit:

Implant placement training is fairly comparative to other CE prices, but no matter what the cost, it is a sound investment. Today’s patients are smarter, well informed, and because of increased technology, they have more options for dental care at their fingertips than ever before. They are more health-conscious and expect more from their care. With proven advantages over other restorative options, dental implants are now on their radar.

We have been saying much the same thing for years, and our ever-growing slate of implantology courses bears us out. Today our clients are some of the best-trained dental implant experts in California and beyond, and we hear frequently that offering dental implants has dramatically enhanced their practice and revenue.

Patients Know Their Own Dental Implants

Dental implantology is a fast-growing field whose benefits are becoming increasingly well known, but that doesn’t mean that oral surgeons have all the answers in hand. Case in point: this recent study which suggested patients can often tell whether an implant is likely to develop complications long before a dental professional makes the same call:

Patients with new dental implants may be able to detect signs of trouble early enough to help prevent complications that can damage gums and bone, a British study suggests.

It is an interesting development that underscores two essential facts: one, that dental implants are surprisingly well-integrated with our bodies’ own biology, and two, that patients increasingly expect flawless performance from an implant.

Our dental implantology continuing education courses give professionals a strong foundation in every aspect of dental implant surgery, from the basics of placement through digital surgical guides and aftercare.

Dental Implants Explode into the Mainstream

Dental implantology is fast becoming an in-demand discipline, and a de rigueur skill for oral surgeons to master. As the Chicago Tribune put it recently:

But today’s implants aren’t your grandma’s implants, which is why millions of people are choosing them now and why more general dentists are being trained to insert implants.

The full article is worth a read, as it rightly singles out many of the most important advantages of dental implants over outdated technologies such as dentures. The result is that more and more dentists are now seeking excellent, in-depth dental hands-on training to understand the dental implant process better.

This training is essential for a number of reasons, not least because it helps to ensure the safety of patients:

It’s also important that implant dentists continue to attend seminars and to read studies about their field, as changes in implant dentistry occur daily thanks to technology, Froum said.

Dental Implants Improve Life for Women

Another study has emerged that proves what many of us in the field of dental implantology already suspected: dental implants far outperform similar devices when it comes to quality of life.

The study in question followed a cohort of postmenopausal women who required dental surgery for symptoms of osteoporosis, and found that the group which received dental implants reported better outcomes across the board:

Women with dental implants reported a higher overall satisfaction with their lives, said Christine DeBaz, a third-year Case Western Reserve dental student. She was lead researcher on the project and personally interviewed each participant.

Fixed dentures scored next highest in satisfaction, followed by false teeth and, finally, women with no restoration work.

Women with dental implants also reported the highest satisfaction in emotional and sexual areas, while those without restorations scored the lowest in those two areas.

It is yet more evidence that dental implantology represents the most effective, long-lasting and satisfying route to dental health for people of every demographic.
