Latest developments in dental implants

Dental implants have been evolving over years. Dental implants of the modern day have become more refined, predictable and simple. Nowadays, we have options to carry out single stage, immediate loading implants. It is also possible to place dental implants in patients in whom it was not possible earlier due to anatomical reasons such as proximity to vital structures (especially the sensory nerves supplying the lower jaw – the inferior alveolar nerve and the maxillary sinuses). Implant systems such as the KOS (King of Single piece), the BCS (Basal Cortical Screw) and the BOI (Basal Osseo Integrated) implants are the recent introductions into the world of dental implants which are extremely predictable, simple and highly economical. These implants also present a unique opportunity where they can be splinted to adjacent teeth unlike the previous ones (delayed loading) where this splinting could not be done.

Mini Dental Implants: Dental Implant therapy has been a great advancement in dentistry over the past 25 years. Mini Dental Implants are proving to be the most significant advancement in Implant Dentistry. Tens of thousands of grateful patients bear witness to benefits delivered from the opportunity to obtain a replacement for lost teeth that restores their smiles and confidence. Dental implants may be split into two separate categories based on the diameter of the device. Small diameter dental implants, most often referred to as 'Mini Implants', are those with a diameter less than three millimeters (3mm.) Likewise, standard or conventional implants are those implants larger than 3mm in diameter, but most commonly 4- 5mm. As a rule of thumb, Mini Dental Implants are at least half the price of conventional implants and sometimes a quarter of the price of conventional implants.
