It is difficult to determine what the best dental implants are because it is first necessary to ask, "what do you mean by best?". Best for who? Best for what situation? Every dental implant case is different and what is best for one patient is not necessarily best for another. Only a dentist can determine what will work best for one patient and even then different dentists may have different opinions on the same case. There are also different implant systems and dentists all have their own preferences.
There are different sizes and different types of dental implants. The best dental implants for a single tooth replacement is a traditional implant. But what size is best? The answer is that it depends on what tooth needs to be replaced. Your teeth are designed for different roles when you are eating, the incisors are meant to tear the teeth whereas the molars are designed to chew the food. There are different dental implant sizes to accommodate the different forces applied when you are eating food. Longer thinner implants are generally used for the teeth at the front of your mouth and shorter wider implants for the teeth at the back.
The best dental implants for you also depends on other factors of your case, like your financial situation. If you need dental implant dentures it makes more financial sense to most people to get mini dental implants. These are significantly cheaper than regular implants but should only be used for implant dentures. This cuts the cost of the dental implant surgery and also allows a dentist to alter your old dentures to fit the mini implants. Regular implants can be used for implant dentures but is much more expensive. However, some patients may still choose to use regular implants for their dentures due to the even more secure hold.
