The world of dental care is evolving, as certain procedures now involve less discomfort and others have been replaced with better alternatives.
The Consumer Guide to Dentistry recently released its top dental trends for 2010, and implants are high on the list. Dental implants are an alternative to crowns and bridges for individuals who need replacement teeth, according to the American Dental Association (ADA).
The ADA says many patients prefer implants because they're more comfortable since they fuse to the jawbone. Furthermore, dentists have been developing less invasive methods of installing dental implants, and the procedure has become less expensive than ever before.
In orthodontics, removable teeth aligners are expected to become more popular in 2010. These invisible braces are harder to spot than their metal counterparts and can be removed before job interviews and other special occasions.
A third dental trend for the new year relates to anesthetics. Treatments are expected to involve less and less pain, as new drugs are being developed that will help patients recover more quickly from their dental care operations.
