What Is The Best Dental Implant?

dental implants Burbank CA

dental implants Burbank CAThere 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!

      More important than the dental implant itself is the skills, experience, training in judgment of the dental implant dentist in placing the implant. There are about 10 good dental implant manufactures and you have already mentioned two of them.

      There are some really cheap implants that are made in foreign countries that I would not suggest.

    Good information you have provided in this article. Dental implant treatment is done to save the loss of teeth that has been decayed or damaged. After dental implant surgery the tooth works same as of original tooth.

      Hi Arifin,

      Even though there are about 500 dental implant companies, and there are about 10 dental implant companies that control the market. These 10 dental implant companies all make very good dental implants.

      Much more important than the actual dental implant, is the skill, training, experience and judgment of the implants surgeon and restorative dentist. Ideally that person is one in the same. Choosing the right person to do your dental implant is far more important than the implant itself. 99% of all implants are made of titanium. They vary in their thread pattern, connection, surface and a host of other things.

    That’s a good point, but the eternal question:
    How can you know if the one your are choosing is a good surgeon?
    I have worked in medicine for years and they things I’ve seen are scary.
    Many of these doctors still get referrals all the time
    Awesome blog!
    Keep it up!
