Every dentist will have his own preference based on his training and experience in a particular brand or system. So, leave him to choose and or choose a different implant who specialises in the brand you are interested in.
There are several "best" brands, and dozens of "cheaper" brands. All of them comply with the basic manufacturing rules, in order to get the license to be sold. Between them, the differences in implant success and implant survival are usually below the margins of statistical error.
The deciding factors for implant success remain a. the surgical skills of the surgeon and b. the prosthetic skills of the dentist who places the implant supported prosthesis.
