Depending on the budget of the patient and of course based on the patient’s bone structure, we use a variety of implants.
Here is an example from daily life to explain the difference in implants:
For example, you may purchase the X brand leather bag for let’s say £1000 but if you want to purchase a first-class high fashion brand bag like Hermes you need to spend like £8000.
The fact is that both bags are made with original leather both are made in a controlled environment. There might be no differences in the qualities of each bag apart from the name of the brand and logo.
It is the same case when it comes to implants, you can be sure that your doctor will recommend the most suitable implant for your mouth and bone structure.

The iridium platinum dental implant was first designed by Greenfield in the USA in 1908. The Chromium-cobalt implant was introduced by Strock in 1939. The cage or screw-shaped implants were first developed by Lubin and Rappaport in 1949.
