Few Dentists Offer Dental Implants Because Lack of Skills

Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
 
Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by your dentist will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. 
 
Dental implants can provide artificial teeth that look natural and feel secure. Dental implants can also be used to attach full or partial dentures. Implants, however, are not an option for everyone. Because implants require surgery, patients must be in good health, have healthy gums, have adequate bone to support the implant and be committed to meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits. If you are considering implants, a thorough evaluation by your dentist will help determine if you would be a good candidate.
 
New research from Implantium, a newly launched provider of dental implant solutions (implant supplier), reveals that a lack of skills is the main reason why so few dentists offer dental implants. Implantium's research shows that just over one in three UK dentists carry out implants, with 64.5% of dentists who don't offer this service claiming it's because they don't have the necessary skills or training. This is followed by 25.8% who said that the dental equipment and dental implants themselves are too expensive to make it a viable business proposition.

Dentists questioned could give more than one answer 
 
Despite this, Implantium's research shows that the UK dental implant market is growing. Some 25% of dentists who aren't currently offering this service are planning to do so within the next 12 months. Furthermore, of those dentists offering implants, 22.7% have seen demand increase over the past 12 months, with only 4.55% seeing it fall.
