Implants 'can be used as anchors' in dental care
Updated: 11/12/2008 6:00:30 PM

Implants Dental implants have the potential to be used as orthodontic anchors, which would increase the possibilities for certain types of dental care, according to one member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.

In research presented at the academy's annual meeting, Dr Frank Celenza of the New York University College of Dentistry suggested that using implants as anchors can significantly reduce treatment time for some procedures.

He also explained that the use of implants can avoid causing other teeth to shift during dental care treatment.

"We're already seeing cases in which implants simplify and streamline orthodontic therapy, decrease treatment times and eliminate dependence on patient compliance in making adjustments and wearing orthodontic appliances," Celenza commented.

He said implants have been successful in orthodontic cases that need tooth replacement and in treatment for patients that have previously been unable to have this type of dental care - such as those with orthodontic deformities.

The AAID has also advocated that people with aging dental bridges should replace this dental work with implants.
