Is my dentist using the right type of dental implants?
My dentist proposes to fit an implant using Southern Implant components. How do I decide if these are the best implants? Do you have any knowledge of the reputation of the Southern Implants range of dental implants? Is there any reliable independent organisation that can provide performance statistics of this range of products?
Thank you for your help
Yes I believe they are good implants. They are manufactured in South Africa. We ourselves use Swiss implants such as Straumann and Nobel Biocare which have decades of research to back them up.
Maybe more important is the experience of your dentist so make sure he’s done lots of implants to ensure you’re getting the best result possible. Our implants are placed by our Specialist Prosthodontist who has placed 1000’s of implants. This is most important if the implants are being placed in the region of the front teeth where aesthetics are very important
I hope that helps
