The implant practice — it’s more than just implants

Dr. Justin Moody discusses his implant system of choice

With the theme of this issue being implant systems, I got to thinking about what that really is. I could show you the surgical kit that I use and the implants that I place, but there really is more to that than just the mechanics of the dental implant. In my 19-year career, I have used several systems, but for the last 8 years, I have used BioHorizons® as my implant partner. There are literally hundreds of implant systems on the market today, and we can put in general terms that they all work from an integration and restorative standpoint. So why do I consistently choose BioHorizons?

To add implants within your practice or to grow your existing implant practice to something much larger, you need a true partner, and I have found this in Bio-Horizons. When a dentist is first starting a practice, dental implant representatives are valuable resources for completing those first few cases successfully; they can help in understanding the surgical kit, and talk with your office team on how to order and maintain just the right inventory without killing your overhead. But as time goes on, these reps are so much more; they provide you and your team with information and education both in the office and outside from classes, training seminars, and larger meetings such as their global symposiums.

Your implant partner should also understand your market and how to grow this within your area. The marketing support I get from BioHorizons has helped me promote my practice from within through the use of brochures, patient education, and marketing pieces such as the Teeth Xpress® magazine. All this is offered, along with dental implants and prosthetic options that are backed by science, confirmed with long-term clinical success, and made in the United States.
