Dental implants have long been the gold standard of reconstructive dentistry. However, the entire process of getting implants often takes patients months- if not years. Fortunately, new advancements are helping practitioners shorten the dental implants timeline for their patients. Below, we’ll share how you can optimize the dental implants timeline for quicker results.

 

New Planning and Imaging Software

Of course, dental implants require a lot of detailed planning. But luckily, new technology is making the process easier- and faster. With software updates, you can more accurately map your patient’s mouth. You can also export your plans to share them with colleagues. By saving time on logistics, you will be able to shorten your patient’s overall treatment time while also producing more accurate images.

 

Microsurgery Techniques

Surgical techniques for dental implants are also constantly evolving. Staying on top of these techniques will help you perform quicker, more accurate surgeries with a lower risk of patient complications.

For instance, microsurgery techniques are now being used to perform dental implant surgeries with fewer, smaller incisions. Of course, this leads to more patient comfort and better overall outcomes. However, these techniques can also shorten the dental implants timeline. By training in microsurgery, you will be able to perform surgeries quicker. Patients will be able to recover quicker, too.

 

Alternatives to Traditional Implants

Traditional dental implants require a lot of planning, as well as multiple procedures to produce the final result. Alternatives such as all-on-4 or all-on-6 implants offer the same great results within a shorter timespan. These “same-day smile” treatments allow providers to install both implants and also fixed dentures during the same procedure, restoring the patient’s smile in a fraction of the time. Of course, not all patients are good candidates for this procedure, so review each case individually.
