Diameter or less are more popular than of higher diameter says a
research by Millennium Research Group's US Dental Marketrack.
The US market for small-diameter

capitalization for Smaller Diameter Implants in United states
is over $20 million , which is 30% growth compared to the
previous year. The increasing number of general dentists
incorporating dental implants into their list of services has
contributed significantly to the rising sales of small-diameter

Implants due to relatively less chair time and cost effectiveness
has been a contributing factor.
