Advantages of Using Quality Implants: Why We Use MIS & Straumann

December 15, 2023
Dental Implant

Dental implants provide a replacement option for missing teeth. Providing a natural look and function, dental implants are the highest quality dental prosthetics. But for the best chance of success, it is necessary to use the highest quality dental implants. Not all implants are the same, and through our experience, we have come to rely on two top brands: MIS and Straumann.

Find out why and what a difference the brand can make in the quality and longevity of dental implant restorations.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth and root system that replaces a tooth that is missing or severely damaged. An implant is a “post” made of biocompatible material with screw-like threads that is surgically placed in the jaw bone. It fuses with the bone through a process known as osseointegration to form a solid bond that acts as an anchor for a dental prosthetic.

One dental implant can replace a single tooth by supporting an artificial crown. Two dental implants can support a bridge and multiple implants can support a set of dentures. There are different brands of dental implants with their own unique advantages. Excellent Dentistry prefers MIS and Straumann implants because of their quality and advantages.

Advantages of MIS Implants

MIS implants are one of the top brands of dental implants available for use by dental professionals. Advantages include:

  • Strength. Titanium alloy includes aluminum and vanadium to increase the overall strength of the implant.
  • Non-allergenic version available. MIS offers an all titanium version to prevent allergies to the other metals.
  • Affordable. When compared to dental implants in general, MIS implants are relatively affordable.
  • 98% implant survival rate. With a high survival rate, MIS implants are likely to last for the long term.

Advantages of Straumann Implants

Another leading brand of dental implants is Straumann. One of the pioneers of dental implant manufacturing, Straumann was founded in 1954 and has been improving its products ever since. Advantages include:

  • Hypoallergenic. Made of 85% titanium and 15% zirconium, Straumann creates almost 100% hypoallergenic implants.
  • Strength. The materials that Straumann implants are made of are strong enough to withstand chewing force.
  • 99% implant survival rate. Straumann implants have a survival rate of 99%, meaning the chances are high that they will last for the rest of your life.
  • Lifetime warranty. Straumann implants have a lifetime warranty to support their implant survival rate.

The biggest benefit of dental implants is their natural function, allowing you to chew effectively without limiting the types of foods you can eat.
