Getting dental implants has never be easier.  Cone Beam   CT scans can identify all structures such as sinuses, nerves, blood vessels, and possible existing patholoy.  Time for placing, healing and the loading of implants has been greatly shortened.  Patient comfort has improved with more conservative surgical approaches.  Cost has lowered   due to the use of stronger titanium materials which can be prepared like the crown of a natural tooth, many times making the need and increased cost for a lab processed abutment much less frequent.
