The changing patient
from Dental Economics
Dental implants have been shown in some cases to have a greater than 98 percent success rate, yet only about 15 percent of candidates receive implant-supported treatment. One of the reasons for this discrepancy: many patients who are eligible for implants never are presented with this treatment option by their general dentists. This article deals with common indications for dental implants and explains when they are an appropriate treatment option, as well as situations in which dentists should consider consulting specialists before making a treatment recommendation.
