There have been some pretty incredible leaps in dentistry over the years that have made all procedures available to everyone. The last of these to become standard procedure is the dental implant. Years ago, implants were expensive and although the benefits to restoration in the mouth were fantastic, only the rich could afford such luxuries. Times have changed thankfully. The invention of the laser has transformed dentistry, replacing the drill and the scalpel- the important elements of having an implant in the past. Laser treatments have become wide-spread, hence having a dental implant has become more refined, along with their healing times and treatment, and of course, making it affordable to all. A dental implant used to be fitted to replace a missing tooth, or in fact, all missing teeth. They are as strong as the original root of the mouth, a lot more free from diseases that normal teeth are prone to and once in, they are in for life. But with the advances in implant technology, has come a greater use for them. They can be used in conjunction with bridges, crowns and dentures to keep them anchored more securely in the mouth. Most importantly, implants will soon make dentures extinct. Now anyone can have an implant; they are as common a procedure as having a filling, as are payment plans and the rewards to the look and health of the mouth can now make any thought of how much they cost, extinct too
