Specializes in Prosthodontics

Materials: Saline implants are bags of saline, which has a certain feel and movement to it. Silicone gel implants are bags of silicone gel. Different feel and movement. Fill a balloon with water and fill another with jello and let set in fridge. Squeeze them and poke them with your finger to feel the difference. Silicone would be somewhat firmer than the jello, but same idea.Read up on them. Good Luck.
