The future of dental implants, in Joondalup and across Australia, looks bright. As more baby boomers become older, the demand for dental implants is rising on a regular basis. Baby boomers benefit from the information age and are now more educated about the benefits of dental implants.
Thanks to numerous advances in the evolution of dental implants, the industry has a 95% success rate. This is unheard of for prosthetic replacements on any other part of the body. In years past, dental implants were an “iffy” proposition; patients didn’t know whether implants were here to stay or if they would become obsolete in a few years.
Now, dental implants are a major part of many permanent individual dental plans. Consumers can count on them being around for their entire lifespans.
Looking Into the Future of Dental Implants
The field of dentistry is amassing a large body of successful work with dental implants. This should lead to more insurance companies acknowledging the long-term benefits of implants. This, of course, would result in better coverage for patients.
Another possibility: third party financing would allow more people to afford dental implants. By stretching the payments out over time, it will make more financial sense for many who wouldn’t otherwise be able to receive dental implants.
Computer technology is allowing more sharing of information in the field. This can help advance techniques and make the success rate go even higher. CT imaging technology is helping dentists become more effective at performing implants. This is being combined with implants that are milled by CAD/CAM technology.
Examples of CAD/CAM technology: milled zirconia implant bridges and new materials such as acrylics and nanoceramics. When better materials, precision milling and improved optical scanning are combined, it is producing a digital workflow that could bring success rates closer to 100%.
