Dental implants from New Image Dental Implant Center in Denver are marvels of technology. The technology keeps getting better, and dental professionals today are making better and better restorations, thanks to computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD-CAM).
Dental implants are indeed modern marvels. But would you believe that implants have been around for about five thousand years?
Not implants as we think of them today, of course. But archaeologists have found evidence of tooth replacement in ancient civilizations. It isn’t the kind of implant we would recommend: back then, seashells, stones, and bits of metal were used as replacements.
Today, CAD-CAM allows us to create and surgically implant replacement teeth with unsurpassed clarity and accuracy. The technology allows for the creation of replicas of non-salvageable teeth. In the case of extractions, they can be inserted as soon as the original tooth is pulled.
Because of these and other advancements, dental implants are replacement teeth have become a part of mainstream dentistry. Whether you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants may be just what you’re looking for.
