Dentists Outpace Orthopedic Surgeons in the Sale of Dental Implants – and for Good Reason!

Dental Implants: The Top Choice for Dentists and Orthopedic Surgeons

Dentistry and orthopedic surgery are two distinct medical specialties that focus on different parts of the body. Dentists are trained to diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases and conditions that affect the teeth, gums, and mouth, while orthopedic surgeons are trained to diagnose and treat conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Despite their differences, these two specialties can sometimes work together to provide better care for patients.

One area where dentistry and orthopedic surgery can collaborate is in the use of dental implants. Dental implants are a type of implantable device that is used to replace missing teeth. They are made of a titanium screw that is surgically placed into the jawbone, where it serves as a replacement for the tooth root. The implant is then covered with a crown, which looks and functions like a natural tooth.

Orthopedic surgeons may be involved in the placement of dental implants, particularly in cases where the jawbone needs to be strengthened or rebuilt in order to support the implant. In such cases, the orthopedic surgeon may perform a bone graft or other surgical procedure to prepare the jaw for the implant.

Despite this potential for collaboration, dentistry and orthopedic surgery are still quite distinct specialties. Dentists and orthopedic surgeons have different areas of expertise and training, and they typically focus on different parts of the body. However, in some cases, such as the use of dental implants, the two specialties can work together to provide better care for patients.

What drives medical decision making: evidence or intuition?
“If risks are known, good decisions require logic and statistical thinking. If some risks are unknown, good decisions also require intuition and smart rules of thumb” (Gigerenzer, 2014).
The question of how to select the best treatment option for a patient in the age of evidence-based medicine can often mean medical professionals find themselves trapped between two conflicting systems. From one side, new evidence is being generated at an increasing rate, covering many situations, with studies and data to back medical decision-making.
From the other side, despite all this available evidence, clinical decision-making continues to be beset by a myriad of unexpected uncertainties, both positive and negative. In such situations, clinical intuition seems to play a necessary and important part in medical decision-making.
Join our live virtual discussion ‘Orthopedics Meets Dentistry’ and dive in together with our panelists to investigate the role of evidence, intuition, risk assessment and perceived safety in decision making in orthopedics and dental implantology.
