Advancements in Dental Implant Technology

 

Dental implant technology has greatly improved over the years, with a success rate aroun 100%

Although dental implants were invented in the mid-fifties, the technology has continued to improve over the past 60 years. Scientists and dentists have studied dental implants extensively. Thanks to their studies, modern dental implants in Scarsdale are better than ever before. In fact, the success rate for dental implant surgery hovers around 100%, showing just how effective implants can be. Here are five other ways dental implant technology has improved.

  1. Improved Screening

    Our implant dentists in Westchester have a good idea of who is a candidate for dental implants. Before you are allowed to have dental implant surgery, your dentist will carefully check your oral health to make sure you aren’t at risk for losing your implant. As a result, the rejection rate for dental implants is very low.

  2. Accurate Imaging

    Highly accurate CAT scan systems, MRIs, and cone beam imaging technologies have made implant treatment planning far more accurate. With this new technology, our periodontists can account for even the most microscopic anatomical difference. Using powerful CAD/CAM software, periodontists can also show patients how their smile will look after treatment.

  3. Posts that Match Your Bone Texture

    Although traditional dental implant posts were smooth, researchers found that integration rates were higher when posts were roughened slightly. That way, the posts mimic natural bone texture and can work seamlessly with your jaw. Because roughened posts have more surface area, they improve adhesion rates and allow people to heal faster.

  4. Comfortable Abutments

    Implant dentists have also improved abutments, which are the collars that hold the crown in place. In addition to being easier for dentists and periodontists to install, they are also more comfortable for the patient during healing.

  5. Better Crowns

    Modern implant dentists have designed crowns with incredibly realistic colors, textures, and opacities, so they look identical to your natural teeth. New crowns also have a longer lifespan than the standard composite or porcelain materials.
