Restorative Dentistry

Posted on

There is no argument that dental implants have become a very popular and remarkable innovation within dentistry. They are design to replace damaged to lost teeth due to severe decay or disease. Dental implants can now be used to replace multiple teeth with a natural looking and fully functional prosthetic. 

There are many advantages in choosing dental implants which include:

  • A natural and attractive smile 
  • Improve confidence 
  • Discretion 
  • Durability 
  • Strength 

With so many dental practices offering the service for dental implants you need to understand that it is not just the service that sets one dental practice apart from another. Not all dental implant providers are the same and this can make choosing the right implant for you quite a difficult journey. 

Patients should not have to gamble their money or their smile, we like all our patients to be armed with all the facts along with as much professional advice as possible before making the decision to get a dentist implant. So, our team at The Neem Tree have put together this short guide on how to choose the right implant brand for you. 

Quick Read: 

  • There are more than 150 companies that produce dental implant components
  • There are 5 brands that are the most established and well known implant companies in the UK dental industry which include: Sraumann and Nobel Biocare.
  • All 5 companies have been in business for more than 30 years
  • Additionally, the implants they produce are popular as well as accessible worldwide, so if the need occurs, it is easy for dentists to obtain replacement parts. 

Different dental Implants are designed for different conditions 

The key difference between the products that these popular manufactures produce is that they are all manufactured to be best suited for particular clinical conditions. There are certain types of implants that can be fitted immediately while there are others that need time to bond with the bone. 

There are some implants that are designed to have a narrow diameter, for specific cases where both space and bone is limited while there are others that are shorter and wider, ideal for inserting near the sinus cavities where the bone is typically thinner in that area.
