What Systems and Materials Are Used?

Introduction

The system and materials used in the full mouth dental implant are on the technical side of implant dentistry, but it is important to know. Learning about what options are best for you is crucial to successful treatment.

Systems

Knowing about the brand and quality of the implant system used by the provider is very important. A limited number of implant systems on the market have the design, surface characteristics, and parts and pieces required for a predictable immediate full mouth implant teeth therapy.

During your consultation visit, you should ask the provider about their implant system. These are the top 5 implant systems used for immediate full mouth implant teeth treatment:

  1. Straumann: Made in Switzerland
  2. Nobel Biocare: Made in Switzerland
  3. Dentsply Sirona: Parts made in Sweden and Germany
  4. Zimmer Biomet: Made in America
  5. BioHorizons: Made in America

Here’s why it is important to choose a market leader full mouth implant system:

  • Decades of manufacturing expertise
  • Less probability of disappearing and a guarantee of accessing needed parts (like new screws that hold the bridge)
  • Global recognition and globally distributed parts and pieces
  • Hundreds of research studies published on their products

The potential problems related to lesser-known full mouth implant systems are simply not worth the short-term cost savings—especially if you average the savings over the years, your implants will serve you.

Materials

Choosing the material is important for your full mouth implant teeth. The three most common types are 1: zirconia teeth, 2. acrylic teeth, 3. composite teeth. AIID Faculty Practice provides the best material option based on your treatment goals.
