Are all Dental Implants Made Equal?

Not all dental implants are made equal. When considering getting dental implants and dentures on implants the quality and expertise does matter. But navigating through many questions and concerns is often daunting. Is one manufacturer better than others? What is the cost of dental implants? How do dental implants compare to dentures? Are dental implants the same as a tooth implant or teeth implants? What are my options for tooth replacement? How do I find implant supported denture pricing? At our clinic, we understand the questions our patients may have. Here are a few important considerations when choosing the best treatment for you.

What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are now the standard of care for replacing missing teeth. Is dental implant for me? Depends; implants can replace one or more missing teeth without affecting the neighbouring teeth. They are also used to secure bridgework or dentures. Dental implants are a superior solution to missing teeth compared to the conventional dentures. Titanium is the metal that makes dental implants. When an experienced implant dentist places dental implants, the procedure is safe and a proven effective replacement for the tooth root.

What are some of the best dental implant brands?

There are a couple of great dental implant brands to consider when choosing your implants. The most established and well-known implant companies are Straumann and Nobel Biocare. Other well-respected dental implant companies include Dentsply Sirona, Biomet 3i (Zimmer Biomet) and BioHorizons.  Different clinical conditions are specific to each patient and you should always discuss best implants for you with a dentist. When choosing the best dental implant brands in discussion with your dentist, you can raise the following considerations:

  • Ease of obtain replacement parts for dentists.
  • How much bone do you have  and which implant is most suitable for you
  • Level of the dental implant specialist experience
  • How much do implant companies invest in research and development
  • Length and duration of the healing process and recovery

The most important consideration

In a nutshell, your personal health condition will inform the most suitable treatment for you.The most important part besides choosing a quality dental implant manufacturer is the surgical skill. If you choose a skilled dental implant surgeon and a skilled dentist, the majority of major brands should provide an excellent outcome. The second most important consideration is the availability of the replacement parts.This is important in case you have issues with implants down the road and require replacement parts.
