Have coated dental implants fallen out of favor?

I wanted to get peoples’ thoughts and experience on what they are using regarding implant coatings these days. Until very recently, I was under the impression that HA coating, for example, was the gold standard for use. I have been using Implant Direct implants for a couple years now and have used their HA coated implants 99% of the time. I don’t place a ton of implants and so I do not order many at a time or very often. That being said, this last time that I placed an order I was told that they are not carrying the HA coated much anymore and that they are, in fact, phasing the whole HA coated line out (I use the Legacy series). When asked why, the representative/operator informed me that most doctors are not ordering or using them at all and that this is what drove Implant Direct to discontinue offering them. I’d be interested in hearing what people are using.
Thank you!
