As a dentist, you know that dental implants technologies have come a long way. Implants are safer, stronger, and more successful than they’ve ever been before. However, even the most modern dental implants still require major oral surgery, which can be stressful for patients. Luckily, new dental implant technologies are helping patients feel more comfortable and confident during their implant journeys. Below, we’ll share a few examples of how new dental implant technologies can transform a patient’s experience.

Minimally Invasive Surgeries

This is perhaps the most obvious improvement that has been made in recent years. New oral surgery tools and techniques have made implant surgeries shorter while also shortening patient recovery time. Minimally invasive procedures also reduce complications after surgery. These developments help nervous patients feel confident going into their surgery.

Immediate Implant Placement

Immediate implant placement is one of the most effective ways to place dental implants. This technique involves placing dental implants directly after a patient’s tooth extraction. Of course, fewer dental procedures are always preferable for patients. However, immediate implant placement also has physical benefits. Patients are less likely to have complications and successful osseointegration is more likely.

Advanced Imaging and Impressions

Of course, all oral surgeries begin with imaging and/or impressions. Using the most advanced imaging and impression tools will then help you to plan and execute the surgery as successfully as possible. Advanced imaging will also create clearer pictures for patients, allowing them to understand what’s happening in their mouths.

Newer Dental Training Models

Of course, dew dental implant technologies are only successful if dentists are properly trained. Fortunately, new dental training methods are making it easy for dentists to continue their education. Webinars, online training manuals, and improved education software now allow dentists to get high-quality training on their own terms.
