Zuga Medical prepares to bring simplified dental implants to general dentists in 2013
from MedCity News
The tens of millions of Americans who have at least one missing tooth have a few options. They can have the traditional bridge put in, have an implant put in, or do nothing. Despite the physical and health consequences associated with missing teeth, many people do nothing because of the cost or fear of restorative procedures. During a bridge procedure, the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth are shaved down, and a false tooth is connected to crowns that fit over those two teeth. Implants, meanwhile, have become increasingly popular because they don't damage the surrounding teeth. But the drawback is they are more invasive and must be implanted during a surgical procedure where the dentist drills into the jawbone, meaning they also cost more.
