Small-diameter implants 'more popular' in U.S.
Updated: 2/25/2008 12:05:22 PM
 

New research has shown that small-diameter dental implants, less than or equal to 3mm, are becoming more popular for use in the U.S. with ease of use and customer satisfaction part of researchers' explanations.

The U.S. Dental Marketrack by Millennium Research Group showed that smaller-diameter implants are growing faster than regular-diameter implants that are larger than 3mm. The study looked at 300 dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists and prosthodontists throughout the country on a quarterly basis.

Chris Shutsa, senior analyst at Millennium said: "Patients often prefer the small-diameter to large-diameter dental implants because they involve less surgical time and are a more cost-effective option."

He also explained that smaller-diameter implants usually involved fewer steps to place and that new clinicians could use them more easily because they could be placed non-invasively.

The report also stated the sector for this treatment would grow through 2012 and that more competitors would enter to develop this type of product in the future that would need to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
