The technological advancements have contributed to the financial factor, effectiveness and convenience in dental implant technology. This has eased the choosing of implants for those teeth that are lost. Since the costs of such implants are affordable, this treatment procedure has been used by many to flaunt healthier and smarter smile.

Making Advancement in Implant Technology:

Here have been advancements in functionality and designs for dental implants by the manufacturers. For greater endurance and stability the implants are made to integrate better with the bone surrounding the teeth. The designs also help in easy insertion and stability in placement. These designs also contribute to flexibility and bone’s maximum use.

How 3D Technology based CAT scan Works:

The traditional procedure for dealing with dental issues includes x-rays that are 2-dimensional in nature and this technology has been helping the surgeons to treat and diagnose various cases. However, the past few years have seen the advent of 3D technology for CAT scan which has revolutionized the procedure of treatment and has given way for easier approach to the more complex cases for the dental surgeons. This technology gives totally in-depth information on the actual condition of the teeth, making it less complicated for the dentists to deal with procedures such as implants. The detailed information provided by this 3D technology includes the ‘bone density’ data which helps in developing ‘computer model’ for implant even before the treatment takes place. Such advancement not only makes the implant placement avert ‘sinuses’ and other ‘nerves’ but also gives new and healthier teeth. This is an expensive technology and demands a lot of financial investment.
Updated Protocols for Implant Treatment:

The older method of treatment for dental implant involves a ‘two-stage approach’ for treatment. This approach involves the dental surgeon fixing the ‘teeth implants’ and covering them up for six or more months to let the bone around the implant grow provide stability- this is ‘stage one’. In case the patient is subjected to ‘bone grafting’, the duration of the process is lengthened. As the implant achieves stability the ‘titanium’ based implant is removed by the surgeon following which the implant is covered by a ‘healing abutment’ and the next part of the job is handed over to the ‘restorative’ dentist who works to manufacture and fix the ‘new teeth’- this is ‘stage two’. This second part may take some more months to complete the entire job. As against this setting, the latest technology introduces 3 D based “CAT Scan” for insertion of dental implants in no time, replacing the old teeth with new ones.


It has been proved through research by that the effective implication of the ‘one-stage approach’ is much more than the previous ‘two-stage approach’. Due to the implementation of the simplified protocol professionals in the dental arena can now choose the right implant to help the patients get functional teeth in a single visit instead of having to make appearances in several sittings. This has been a great help for those people who do not have the time to dedicate to their teeth.
