Dental Implants in London Contributes to 2020 $1.2B 3D Printing Market

07 / 04 / 2015

In a recent study published by independent research and consulting firm, IndustryARC, analysts are saying that there will be a significant increase in the demand for 3D printing as applied in healthcare, including the dental sector. In 2014 alone, a large chunk of the revenues in global 3D printing in the healthcare market – estimated at $175.3M – is credited to dental applications. According to the study, 3D printing in healthcare will grow to become a $1.2B market by 2020, with the demand for implants in the dentistry sector growing correspondingly due to increasing dental implant surgeries and procedures.

Why are so many people opting for dental implants instead of other dental solutions? The answers to this question are varied, but all point to the 98% success rate of implants and the numerous advantages they present over other solutions.

Understanding the Procedure

Before considering the advantages of this procedure, a patient must first determine whether or not he or she is qualified for it. You must consult with your dentist to find out if getting dental implants in London is the best option to replace a missing tooth or several teeth, as opposed to using removable dentures or fixed bridges. Your medical status and a detailed assessment of your overall stomato-gnathic system are important in determining how successful the procedure will be. Typically, those who suffer from diabetes, uncontrolled periodontal disease or heart problems will have to be evaluated first. Similarly, the health of your gums and the jawbone to which the implant will be fused must be assessed.

Benefitting from the Procedure

Dental implants function and look very much like real teeth, so you can confidently eat any type of food without worrying about your dentures slipping out. Having your dentures moving inside your mouth will also cause you to slur your words as you speak, which is something that will not happen if you have implants instead of removable dental appliances.

Aside from the success rate, dental implants are also lauded for their durability. With proper care, these can last your entire lifetime. Dental implants can also improve your overall oral health; having individual implants allows you to have better access in between teeth so you can clean them better. Moreover, unlike other dental procedures, installing implants does not require reducing or altering nearby teeth.

Considering all these, it’s no surprise that the demand for dental implant surgeries and procedures is expected to increase in the following years. With the help of a skilled dentist from practices such as London Bridge Dental Practice, you can experience having dental implants in London that are durable and function as expected.
