Technology in the cosmetic dental industry has come a very long way. Dental implants were first invented in 1965, and centuries prior, elements such as copper or even wood were fashioned into pegs and used as replacements for teeth. It’s safe to say that functionality was the main focus over aesthetics, but thanks to innovations in technology, the process of replacing teeth and restoring smiles is easier and more accurate than ever before.

When it comes to replacing teeth that are missing due to age, injury, or disease, tooth implants are akin to a modern miracle. Capable of remaining strong and stable for up to a lifetime, this tooth replacement option is also aesthetically pleasing and natural-looking. But even more exciting is that, as technology has evolved, many more advancements have made tooth implants more comfortable, stable, and natural-looking.
Computer-designed dental implants
The technology in the field of dental implantology has evolved in the past recent years with the use of dental photography, 3D scanning and 3D printing. These have greatly improved the accuracy of making dental restorations and implant abutments.
In the same manner, the use of CT scans has elevated the process of implant placement itself, as they provide a high level of detail and allow surgeons to precisely plot the implant location.
With previous iterations of dental technology, a small amount of jawbone loss during the procedure was to be expected. But advancements in CT scanning, computer-aided design and manufacturing enable dentists to complete the procedure with zero bone loss.
The idea is to use computer-imaging to create a replica of the tooth. This is much more effective than the previously used two-dimensional radiographs and casts for replicating the missing tooth. This technology allows for the prosthetic to be set more precisely in the required space.
