Implants are poised for explosive growth in the coming decade. A perfect storm is about to hit in terms of demographics, consumer awareness, and a host of other factors that bode well for restorative and surgical practices. According to conservative assessment profiles – e.g., iData Research, an international market research firm – the U.S. market for dental implants is expected to regain double-digit growth by 2013.
The potential market for implant treatment is huge. The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons found that 69% of adult’s ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal, or tooth decay. In addition, by age 74, 26% of adults will have lost all of their permanent teeth.
Despite the vast numbers of patients who could benefit from implants, many U.S. general dentists are involved in less than one implant procedure per month. This figure seems all the more remarkable, considering:
- The many quality-of-life benefits that implants offer to patients
- The potential to increase production with an easily sustainable revenue stream for both restorative and surgical practices
- The fact that, unlike in medicine, almost all implant procedures cannot be shunted to auxiliaries
The future of implants couldn’t be brighter, but dental practices need to get ready today.
What offices do now will affect their ability to become the leading implant practices of tomorrow? Practices with the right management and marketing systems designed to build capacity in place now will be well positioned to take advantage of the increased demand for implant treatment.
Implants will continue to be the treatment of choice for both edentulous and partially edentulous patients for the following reasons:
- Improved quality and ease of use. Today’s implants last longer and are easier to place and restore than implants from 25 years ago. In fact, more specialists and generalists now recognize implants as the best choice in many cases.
- Demographics. Baby boomers are looking for ways to maintain a youthful, attractive appearance. Dentures are not for them. This is the generation that changed American society at every level. And they’re doing the same to the concept of middle age and retirement.
- The smile factor. Cosmetic dentistry has become an acceptable part of American culture. Implants are an integral part of the cosmetic dentistry revolution. More and more patients who become partially or fully edentulous will have to consider implant treatment.
- Extremely high success rates for implants. Depending on the source of the data, dental implant success rates are 95% or higher over 10 years, which is notably higher than numerous traditional services, including root canal therapy. These percentages have led to more practices offering dental implants as a preferable treatment alternative to crowns, bridges, and removable dentures.
- Standard part of dental school curriculum. Implant treatment has become part of the core curricula of most dental schools. Today’s dental school graduates are familiar with implant treatment and the many benefits it brings to a wide variety of patients.
- Decrease of implant treatment contraindications. Dental implants have improved greatly since the 1980s. In the early years of dental implants, a significant number of potential implant patients were perceived to have contraindications for existing implant therapy. Advancements in implant designs, bone grafting procedures, and analysis of extensive outcome data have greatly narrowed the range of absolute contraindications.
- A better option for edentulous patients. Most patients wearing full dentures would benefit from dental implants in numerous ways. Patients need to think of implants not as an expensive luxury, but as a standard quality-of-care option. It is important for dental professionals to educate patients about all the benefits that implants have over other treatment options. Remember, no other option has a more natural and unobtrusive fit and feel than implants or implant-retained denture prostheses. Smiling and chewing are basic patient desires.
- Faster completion time. In the 1980s, dentistry was a field accustomed to short-term treatment procedures, such as cavity restorations and root canals. Initially, the majority of dental implant cases required six to nine months to complete. This was an inhibiting factor for doctor motivation and patient case acceptance. Advances in dental implant systems and component parts, as well as better understanding of bone biology, have decreased treatment times significantly.
- Increased insurance coverage. More dental insurance companies are covering some of the cost of implant treatment. An implant with a crown is usually about the same cost as a three-unit bridge, but statistically it lasts much longer. No wonder insurance companies are changing their attitudes toward implants. Also, when patients have fewer out-of-pocket expenses, they are more likely to accept implant treatment.
