The patient's personal responsibility for oral health is increasingly determined by offers from media, industry, healthcare providers and health insurance plans. Full cost coverage, high-tech promises and loans present a portfolio of opportunities for patients “tired” about teeth. Patient expectations of dental implants include the values comfort, appearance, function, hygiene and health. The decision for implant placement is determined by patient’s dental awareness and well-being with their natural teeth. If implant surgery is safe, free of complications, and the implantprosthetic restoration appears naturally, many customers are satisfied over the long term.
