With technology advancing at a rapid rate, it was only a matter of time before dental implants became a technological procedure. And so it is that “implantology” has become a standard part of offerings at offices around the country. Most technologically placed dental implants are done so in a single day and will last longer than a traditionally restored tooth. These dental implants also look like real teeth and will withstand the usual rigors of a real tooth, even for smokers. Add it all up and “implantology” will save a patient plenty of time, money and discomfort as well as ensure surrounding teeth are not negatively impacted in an attempt to save a badly damaged tooth.
