Beware of Cheap Dental Implants

Bookmark and Share

Although all dental implants have to be cleared by the FDA before they can be used clinically, not all dental implants are created equal. Like any product, dental implants have brands of varying quality.

The brands I use are made by industry leaders Straumann, Astra Tech, and Nobel Bio Care (see below), known for their high craftsmanship, durability, and treatment success. Dental implants need to last a lifetime, so when it comes to your dental health, you want the best.

Off-brand dental implants and dentists offering reduced-rate procedures should make you think twice. Although the economy has everyone thinking about ways to save, there are certain guidelines you should follow when it comes to your dental health.

The question I always ask myself is, "For a dental implant that's supposed to last a lifetime, do I really want less than the absolute best?" For that reason, cost should not always be the first consideration.

DENTAL IMPLANT BRANDS

Straumann
The Straumann Standard Implant with the 2.8 mm neck has been the proven solution for predictable treatment success for more than a decade in all dental implantology indications.

This cylindrical implant is available in endosteal diameters 3.3 mm, 4.1 mm, and 4.8 mm and can be inserted easily and safely with only a few surgical instruments.

By offering two standardized prosthetic platforms (RN Regular Neck, and WN Wide Neck), the Standard Implant provides a clear range of options, even if different endosteal diameters are used. Source: www.straumann.com

Astra Tech
Astra Tech dental implants are built with years of exhaustive research and pre-clinical and clinical studies behind them. They are developed to promote early healing, good treatment predictability, and first-class esthetic results. This emphasis on excellence is why Astra Tech has been an industry leader since 1913.

Nobel Bio Care
"Every great smile must have a strong foundation." That's the motto of Nobel Bio Care. The company's implants are backed by extensive R&D and years of use to ensure your optimal success with implant-retained rehabilitations. The company also owns the largest share of the global dental market, as well as the highest percentage share in the American and Asian markets.Source: www.nobelbiocare.com
