Dental Implant Indicators

Goals

To understand non-clinical indicators that a dental patient may require implants. This information will be used to support the development of a learning plan that will in turn, support branding the dental implants side of the business.

Early Findings

During our preliminary research, we were able to determine, and provide an overview of, three non-clinical indicators that a dental patient may require implants. Below is an overview of our early findings.

Difficulty Chewing

  • One non-clinical indicators that a dental patient may require implants is difficulty chewing.
  • When a patient loses a tooth, the sensitivity of the other teeth increase. This causes discomfort when trying to chew.
  • This may also lead to jaw pain as well as other mouth issues.

Pain Eating Hot or Cold Foods

Sunken Face

  • If a patient has a sunken-in look to their face, this could be an indicator that they will require implants.
  • This is because some denture wearers can experience bone loss because their dentures do not increase bone growth. This bone loss results in a sunken-in face.

Proprietary Research

  • In addition to this public search, we scanned our proprietary research database of over 1 million sources and were unable to find any specific research reports that address your goals.
