Dental implants are rapidly becoming a mainstay of general dentistry. Specialists have been using dental implant technology for years — and as with most advances in dentistry, general dentists are now adopting that very same technology in order to bring it to more patients.
Patients typically keep their dental implants for life. Also, unlike a bridge, dentists who place dental implants don’t need to disturb the adjacent teeth.
These advantages are making dental implants the gold standard for tooth replacement.
Today, the business of dentistry is tougher than ever before. Dental practices face increased competition locally, as well as with large Dental Service Organizations that have massive purchasing power and marketing reach. Many dentists entered the field to run their own businesses, and to be their own boss – the newfound competition is challenging in this modern landscape. More than ever, general dentists must expand their services to meet the needs of their patients.
