There are many different dental implant systems available on the market. Some top-hitting names include Hiossen, Dentis, Nobel Biocare, Zimmer, and Ankylos. While each system is made for the same purpose it’s important to note that their application process and internal connections differ. Some have circular, triangular, square, oblong, or a flowery-shaped internal connection. The connections are what holds the implants in place. Knowing what system you have or are planning to get is important for future dental visits. While dentists can make some close guesses, knowing exactly what you have can ensure you get the right replacement or adequate repairs should you need them in the future. Our tip is to ask your dentist for your implant information including the name of the implant, the type of implant, diameter, and internal connection when you first receive them.
