Dental Implants Dental Implants in Dubai

While Dr. Wassenaar is committed to making positive impacts on the dental health of our community in Williams Lake, he’s also making impacts on a larger scale.

As an experienced implant dentist, he’s an active member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Through international organizations, he’s able to participate in global conferences to share and gain knowledge in dentistry on a global scale.

Last month, Dr. Wassenaar was invited to present his scholarly findings on dental implants at the World Congress on Dental and Oral Health 2016 in Dubai. He was excited to lead a lecture and learn from a variety of dentists all around the world.

The topics of this year’s presentations were centered on “focusing on changing disease patterns and treatment needs in dental and oral health.”

The conference was able to bring together research from Prosthodontics, Periodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons, Endodontics, Restorative Sciences, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Operative Dentistry, oral biology, and other dental and oral health fields. It combined the best of the best from every field, so dental professionals could broaden the knowledge on areas outside of their expertise.

Dr. Wassenaar was excited to accept the request and give a lecture on Implantology.

The premise of his lecture focused on the evolution of technology in with dental implants, and how easy it’s become to improve the lives of those suffering with tooth loss.

In their infancy, about 20 years ago, dental implants were used to improve the lives of patients, but the results weren’t exact. Longevity, esthetics, and function were compromised, because technology just wasn’t at the same level that it’s at today.

Now, we can use biotechnology to find the healthiest and most effective area to place an implant in the bone for better function and longevity. Now, we can use CBCT technology and CAD/CAM to use a precise surgical guide to place implants in a safe and quick way.

Not to mention, bone grafting has allowed dentists to make patient’s jaws more stable to receive an implant. Advancements in implant designs have also made modern implants more beautiful and realistic than ever.

Dental implants have come a long way and opened the door for a lot of suffering patients.

Modern dental implants have offhandedly changed the face of endodonics and periodontology. It’s easy, safe, and healthier for to remove problem teeth and replace them with implants, instead of having patients suffer with dysfunctional teeth.

For prosthodontics, dental implants have become a conservative option for people with missing teeth. As science, medicine, and technology continue to progress, implant dentistry will make a positive footprint on the entire world.

These are just some of the findings that Dr. Wassenaar from Williams Lake Smiles was proud to present to some of his international colleagues, so they, too, can see the benefits of dental implants in multiple facets of dentistry.
