Dental implants offer a permanent solution for men and women who've lost a tooth. Once surgically implanted, they look and function like a real tool. The following report takes a closer look at the global dental implants market and where it's headed.

It's estimated that roughly 120 million adults in the United States have lost at least one tooth, according to the American College of Prosthodontists. When a person loses a tooth, a dental implant should be considered as a replacement option. Also known as an endosseous implant, a dental prosthesis that's surgically implanted into the jaw to act as a tooth.
Dental implants are preferred over dental bridges for two main reasons: First, dental implants don't require filing down the adjacent healthy teeth as with dental bridges.

The healthy teeth to the side of the implant socket will remain untouched. Second, dental implants are inserted into the jawbone, making them significantly stronger than dental bridges. Of course, there are plenty of other reasons to choose dental implants over dental bridges, but these are the two main benefits offered by this surgical dental procedure.
Because it's a surgical procedure, some people are skeptical of seeking a dental implant. The good news, however, is that dental implants have a high success rate. Studies show that the five-year success rate for dental implants is around 93% to 98%, meaning only 2% to 7% of patients experience a complication within five years of the initial dental implant procedure.
As the population begins to age, the dental implants market will likely grow. Age is a risk factor for tooth loss, with older adults being more likely to lose teeth than younger adults. As a result, more people will seek dental implants as a solution to their lost or missing teeth.

Experts predict that tapered implants will remain one of the market's fastest-growing segments in the months and years to come.
