Dental Implants: Factors That Differentiate Their Types

Types & Kinds of Dental Implants. There is a wide range of Dental Implants. Dental implants differ depending on their shape, the morphology of their surface, and the way they are connected to the prosthetic work. Our clinic, with its specialized dentists, offers the ideal personalized solution to each patient, always tailored to their needs.

The five main factors that differentiate the types of dental implants are discussed below.

1st factor: Dental Implant Material

Titanium, either in its pure form or as an alloy, is the chosen material for the building of the dental implant. As a material, it increases functionality to the maximum and has excellent compatibility with the jawbone. It is durable and prevents bodily fluids from penetrating into the implant. It is not affected by the surrounding tissues and offers long-term results while enhancing the permanence of the work.

2nd Factor: Size of the Dental Implant

It is important to note that most dental implant brands and companies now offer all types of dental implants. This makes the final choice of which implant to use much easier, since it offers a range of implants that are different in size and shape. The length and diameter of the implant will vary depending on the patients’ anatomy. The goal is always to meet every need that the patient has.

3rd Factor: Surface area of Dental Implants

Highly specialized mechanical equipment and appropriate ‘surgical’ production conditions are required for implant surface treatment. The result increases the surface area of the implant in contact with the jawbone, which in turn increases the overall duration of the work done in our clinic.

4th Factor: Implant Morphology

The two main design approaches most commonly used are rhizomorphic implants and cylindrical implants. The surface of both types consists of spirals and is not smooth, which affects osseointegration. The experience of the Oral Surgeon is reflected in his ability to make the most appropriate choice of dental implant by taking into account the patient’s oral area. The goal is always patient safety, excellent fit, and perfect functionality.

5th Factor: Connection of the Implant to the Prosthetic Work

A perfect connection between the dental implant and the prosthetic components guarantees absolute precision and maximum durability. In particular, the perfect connection between the two requires millionths of a meter precision to obtain a result that fully mimics the natural dentition. To achieve this, high-end industrial production components are used, as some broken dental implants and prosthetic parts are demanding in the surgical placement work. This part of connecting the Prosthetic Implant to the dental implant is very important in order to complete the invasive procedure perfectly.

Our clinic offers a wide range of options that are tailored to each case and patient. The many years of experience and the complete specialization of the oral surgeon Konstantinos Psomaderis, combined with our highly qualified medical team, offer the patient the right conditions to make the best investment for himself. The result is not only long-term but also impressive. Get your smile back today.
