Types of implants

Nowadays, the market offers a wide range of types of dental implants (over 300 brands) and this is why it is very difficult to say which is “the best dental implant” as implantology is continuously developing.

The main brands are made in Germany, the USA, France, Switzerland, and Sweden. In most cases, dental implants are made of titanium and the differences are given by:

  • The shape of the dental implant
  • The type of treatment conducted on the dental implant surface.

As a rule, each implantologist opts for a limited number of brands because, in most cases, the technique and the equipment required to apply and develop the implant prosthesis differ from one brand to another. Hence, it is practically impossible to find an experienced implantologist that works with tens of brands.
