San Diego Dentist Comments on Rise in Popularity of Dental Implants

A dentist in San Diego has commented on the increasing popularity of people opting to have dental implants to replace a lost or broken tooth.


San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/26/2014 -- Recent figures have revealed a dramatic increase in the number of people opting to have dental implants. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), 3 million people a year choose a dental implant and the figure is increasing by 500,000 annually.

Statistics from the AAID show that by 2018 the dental implant market in the United States will be worth $5 billion. The increase in popularity for this dental procedure is perhaps not surprising as the results of an implant give a healthy, natural smile, while preserving the rest of the teeth.

Commenting on the increase in popularity of dental implants in San Diego, Dr Zerafat, of the Dentist Pacific Beach Practice said:

“Dental implants are the ideal solution for many people. They look natural and provide a permanent solution to a broken or missing tooth. They also preserve the health of the surrounding teeth and implants and will help to maintain the natural profile of the face.”

The improved confidence and increased self-esteem that patients often feel when they’ve had an implant fitted can be life changing for many patients, however, Dr Zerafat urges caution when finding a dentist to do the implant work and advises patients to find a dentist who is experienced in dental implants that they are comfortable with so they can discuss the procedure in detail before committing to it.

Dr Zerafat is a doctor of Dental Surgery at University of California San Francisco and UCLA implant Placement Restoration and has many years of experience in implant dentistry in San Diego working with patients to ensure that they get the results that they want.
