More than 50 years after their first use in dentistry, dental implants continue to be used extensively for treating tooth loss. They have evolved from an expensive and elective treatment to a quick, efficient and cost-effective option used by many dentists and patients alike. Technology has played an important part in this transition, since modern implants are more aesthetically pleasing than ever and require less treatment time.
At Expert Implants, we are constantly being trained on the latest implant technologies as we want our patients to benefit from the best treatment possible. Dental implants in Southampton are constantly changing what dentists can do and what patients can hope for.
Modern implant tools
Whether you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants can cover your needs. Implant technology is continually evolving and that is the reason why dental implants in Southampton and elsewhere have a high success rate. Here are just two of the innovative technologies that have allowed a quicker and more comfortable implant placement in the last few years:
- Improved 3D and imaging technology
- High-quality implant posts.
In modern implant dentistry, technology accounts for half the process, therefore, having the right tools can enable dentists to place dental implants more precisely than ever.
3D and imaging techniques have come a long way, and they are now used to offer a detailed scan of the patient’s mouth, allowing the dentist to find the best sites for the placement of dental implants.
Moreover, imaging technology is entirely customised and can take into account minor defects and other issues in the patient’s teeth that could compromise implant treatment.
Last but not least, this technology allows dentists to monitor the entire process from the beginning to the end, preventing problems from happening.
On the other hand, modern titanium implant posts are created with the most advanced specification to allow for the best fusion possible. These posts allow the jawbone to heal faster and create a stronger and sturdier foundation for replacement teeth.
