ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire -03/01/12)- Atlanta cosmetic dentist Robert Brochstein has noticed an increase in dental implant surgery in the last five years. According to Dr. Brochstein, advances in digital imaging technology and in materials science have fueled this growth. Based on data from Dr. Brochstein's Atlanta dental practice, implant surgeries are up nearly 50% compared to one decade ago.
"It used to be that dental implant surgery was a complicated, invasive procedure that was often expensive and painful," says Dr. Brochstein. "However, new imaging technology has changed everything. Because we can now construct hyper-accurate 3D models of a patient's anatomy, we can come up with a treatment plan that is very efficient. These new treatment plans reduce costs and make the procedure relatively painless too."
Dr. Brochstein, a practicing Atlanta-area dentist since 1984 and the founder of the Brochstein Dental Clinic, has decades of dental implant experience. In that time, he's personally overseen hundreds of dental implant procedures.
"I don't think anyone in the dental field imagined that implant technology would advance so greatly in such a short period of time," explains Dr. Brochstein, "For example, implant-supported dentures were relatively rare a few years ago, but today they're commonplace. Patients love them compared to dentures without implant supports, and because of advanced new materials, they're surprisingly comparable to natural teeth."
In addition to dental implants, Dr. Brochstein has noticed the same growth in cosmetic services including whitenings, veneers and orthodontics.
