Den's Dental Blog

Hello! My name is Den. This blog is going to cover a range of dental topics. I am not a dentist or a dental nurse but I have recently undergone a lot of dental treatment. This treatment has given me a great insight into the world of dentistry and I would like to share everything I have learnt with you here. Last year, I developed terrible pain in my mouth. I was diagnosed with severe tooth decay. The dentist removed the problem teeth and then inserted false ones in their place. He also whitened my teeth to improve my smile. I hope you find my blog useful.

Four Developments In The Dental Implant Industry In 2019

by Myrtle Banks

Dental Implants are a popular alternative to dentures and have many benefits, such as being a permanent alternative to dentures, being more comfortable than dentures and, in general, being a less restricting and more natural alternative to dentures. While dental implants have been around for some time, dental implants are seeing a variety of developments, notably in the way they are produced. Below are the top four developments in the dental implant industry.

3D Printing

3D printing is now becoming a popular method for producing dental implants. This comes with a number of benefits. Notably, the cost to produce dental implants becomes significantly lower, both to the consumer and the producer. While initially coming with a high installation and starting cost, 3D printing could fast become the industry standard to produce implants.


While robots have yet to have complete control over dental surgery, developments in the robotics industry have developed technology that can assist dental practitioners when fitting dental implants. In the future, it might not be long before robots take a more hands-on role in dental implant surgery, though for now they will simply help dental surgeons in their surgery.


Developments in nanotechnology have allowed for much more effective and disease-resistant dental implants. This is because nanotechnology installed into dental implants allows for a much stronger and smoother surface, preventing cavities and oral diseases considerably. Use of nanotechnology in dental implants eliminates bacteria's ability to latch onto gaps in the surface, so expect to see nanotechnology become more popular.

Implants integrated With Dentures

A recent development is the ability for dentures to be supported by implants. This benefits dentures in a number of ways, giving them much longer-lasting life, helping them provide a much more natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing smile and reducing the chance of food being caught under the implant. In particular, implant-supported dentures will help to reduce the number of people with loosely fitted dentures. Loose dentures can create a number of problems, particularly when in tandem with things such as an imbalanced diet and the risk of adhesives damaging the dentures.


To conclude, the overall development in the dental industry is towards increased integration of technology and, in particular, an increased use of robotics, 3D Printers and nanotechnology. We can expect to see more and more integration. This will ultimately lead to a more cost-effective way to produce stronger, more durable, longer-lasting and effective dental implants.
