Implantology in dentistry is one of the fastest growing segments in the global dental industry as it is seen as attractive, innovative and very profitable.

A growing number of general practitioners are beginning to work with the placement of implants. This has, in turn, spurred the development of supporting technology, driving the adoption rate of dental implants even further. In particular, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanners have successfully entered the market due to the high level of accuracy in “implant diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment response monitoring” applications, according to Jack T. Krauser, DMD.

In addition, there is a reciprocal relationship between implantology and the growing use of CBCT scanners; both technologies perfectly complement one another and will fuel each others growth in the coming years.
