DENTAL IMPLANT BRANDS
The use of dental implants as missing teeth solutions can have a hugely beneficial impact not only on your smiles, but on the overall quality of your life as well. The benefits that dental implants can have on your life will greatly be maximised with the help of your dental surgeon – and with the help of the best possible dental implant type for your specific implant needs.
The formulation of your dental implant treatment plan will involve a healthy and comprehensive discussion with your dentist or dental surgeon, about the entire implant procedure and what each step will include. The type and/or brand of dental implant may also be discussed at this point – and it would be best if you have valuable information about the different brands of dental implants used nowadays, so that you can make the smartest decisions when it comes to choosing which dental implant brand is best for your needs and goals.
Here is a list of the most common dental implant brands available nowadays, and a brief description of each brand’s merits:
