A Comparison of Different Dental Implant Designs

Previous slide

Dental implants are available in a multitude of materials and designs. However, some designs may be more ideal in a given situation than others. Most implant designs use grade 2, 4, or 5 titanium. Other designs cryo treat the titanium or use other materials, such as tantalum. Implant macro design topology include thread pitch angle, thread depth, thread number, and thread cross sectional designs. Micro design topologies are the microscopic surface roughness of various forms created by acid etching, surface blasting, and chemical treatments. Active chemical treatments involve using calcium, phosphorous, fluoride, and other compounds to create a bio-active surface. The design of the implant-abutment interface, usually categorized as an external, or internal connection, may be proprietary depending upon the implant system. Platform switching designs are the mismatch of a smaller diameter abutment mated to a larger diameter implant body interface and may have beneficial biological effects.


  • To understand the importance of implant to abutment integrity for long-term bone retention
  • To understand the importance of the implant macro design in regards to initial primary stability as it relates to bone quality
  • To understand the relevance or non-relevance of implant surface treatments
  • To be better able to select a particular implant design for a particular patient’s given oral situation
