NEW CONCEPTS IN ORAL IMPLANTOLOGY
In the past few decades when the idea first came up, dental implants were thought to be doubtful and their fields of applications were limited. There were no long-term follow ups, not enough technology to evaluate the outcomes and success of the procedure and the list goes on. But still the idea of dental implants had given so much hope that, despite all the doubts, practitioners gave it a shot.
So, where are we now today?
Today, dental implants are one of the most applied and successful treatment options in oral surgery. In comparison with the alternatives, when function and aesthetic are considered, dental implants have very satisfactory results and their long term success is well proved, hence many different case types can be treated safely and successfully with them. Today, practitioners are not only considering the functional aspects of implantology, they are also trying to achieve the best aesthetic results. Their aim is to reach the perfection and to get close to the natural in both ways, both aesthetical and functional. Briefly, today “good” is just not good enough.
So, if today the good is not good enough, where will we be in the future?
Future is nigh but also limitless. Considering the improvements of technology just by observing our daily life, we can have some clues and at the same time we know that even if we have some clues, technology will shock us anyway. Biogenetics, 3D technology, nanotechnology, biomechanical engineering are the pathways to the ultimate success and beyond. We already see their reflections in implantology, CAD-CAM technologies, imaging systems…etc. Are we ready to see beyond?
