Dental implants have come a long way in the past two decades, offering patients a wide range of options to restore their smiles. In this blog, our restorative dentists, Dr. Eddie Lee, will discuss the best quality dental implants available on the market today. We will cover the top brands, including Straumann, Nobel BioCare, Dentsply, Zimmer Biomet, BioHorizons, Bicon and Implant Direct.
We will also discuss what to look for when choosing a dental implant company and how to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implant surgery. Straumann is a well-known Swiss implantology company founded in 1954. The company is renowned for its extensive clinical product testing and ongoing research on implants. Straumann has developed a wide line of tissue regeneration products that are used during surgical procedures to help prevent tooth and bone loss. In addition to manufacturing dental implants, Straumann also designs and manufactures its own brand of precision instruments and components for use with its implant systems.
Its philosophy is based on more than 65 years of research and continuous innovation derived from Brånemark's research and its revolutionary discovery of osseointegration in the early 1950s. Nobel BioCare is another popular dental implant brand that supports its customers through education and professional development. The company offers first-rate training, in-office support and patient information materials. More recently, Nobel BioCare has expanded its efforts to guided surgery systems to help dentists improve surgical outcomes. Dentsply is an American manufacturer of dental equipment and dental consumables that are sold in more than 120 countries. The company's products are based on the foundation created by Astra Tech Dental's extensive research.
All products undergo several years of development and verification before being introduced to the market. Documented research and development focuses on all aspects of implant treatment, including compromised cases, simplification of treatment procedures, and extensive preclinical and clinical studies. Zimmer Biomet designs, manufactures and markets orthopedic products, including surgical prostheses and artificial joints made of the same materials as its dental implants. The company was founded on the basis of research trials conducted at the University of Alabama in Birmingham in 1994 by well-known implant researcher Carl E.BioHorizons continues to use extensive scientific research to produce innovative, high-quality, evidence-based products, including implant solutions and tissue regenerating materials used for bone grafting. BioHorizons implants have been shown to have an extremely high survival rate, 99.2% on average, with minimal bone loss. Bicon is a brand of dental implants known for creating short 8.0 mm titanium implants that allow dental implants to be placed in areas where bone height is limited and extensive grafts are not possible.
Bicon implants fit a niche market and allow patients to undergo implant restorations with implant products that most of the larger manufacturers don't offer. Implant Direct established itself in the implant market by being the first dental implant brand to offer customers products produced in its California manufacturing facilities online in an all-in-one package. This allowed dentists to receive all the parts needed for placement. The Stomadent Dental Laboratory offers beautiful restorations to meet all your implant needs. Whether it's a crown for a single-tooth implant, a denture attached to an All-on-4 system or a full-arch zirconium bridge, they have what you need. They offer you the best solutions designed specifically for the individual needs of your patients.
Much of the success of implant treatment depends on the surgical skills of the dental implant dentist as well as the skills of the dentist or prosthodontist who designs the restorative dental implant. Dental and medical experts recommend dental implants for patients because tooth loss due to injury or infection can cause serious complications. Now that we've introduced some of the best dental implant brands for dentists to consider, let's discuss what to look for when choosing a dental implant company to work with. Consider factors such as reputation, customer service, product quality and price when selecting an implant manufacturer for your office's needs.
It is also important to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implant surgery before proceeding with treatment. Factors such as age, overall health status and lifestyle habits can affect your candidacy for dental implants. Your dentist will be able to assess your candidacy during your consultation. Dental implants can be an excellent solution for restoring your smile after tooth loss due to injury or infection.
With so many options available on the market today from top brands such as Straumann, Nobel BioCare, Dentsply, Zimmer Biomet, BioHorizons, Bicon and Implant Direct, you can find an option that meets your needs.
