What Is The Best Dental Implant?
There are approximately 150 different dental implant manufacturers. Luckily, most dental implants are well made. The best dental implants are manufactured to very strict tolerances such as airplane engines would be made.
All root form dental implants are made of titanium. Some implants differ in the type of titanium alloy used.
Some dental implants are much better in the long term than others. This difference has got to do with the ability of the implant to maintain the high bone levels over the years.
Much more important than the implant itself is the skill of the dentist placing it. Equally important to the surgical placement is the HOW the teeth are made on the implants. Making teeth on implants is very different than on natural teeth.
If I had to weigh the importance it would be:
5% — type of implant
95%— skill of the surgeon and quality of the final teeth.
Be sure to really check out the implant dentist’s experience.
This is an analogy my father told me:
It only takes one five cent nail to fix a badly leaking roof. It takes a good roofer to know where and how to place that nail!
The best implant is one that is placed well!
