Dental implants offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth. A dental implant is in essence a replacement for a natural root and is usually a screw or cylinder shaped.
Each implant is placed into a socket carefully drilled at the precise location of the missing tooth. Often the implant can be placed at the same time.
If an implant has a screw-thread on its outer surface it can be screwed into position and if it does not, it is usually tapped into place.
The main aim during installation of any implant is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone. This creates an initial stability, which over time is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone into microscopic roughness on the implant surface.
In order to support replacement teeth, dental implants normally have some form of internal screw thread or post space that allows a variety of components to be fitted.
Once fitted, these components provide the foundation for long-term support of crowns, bridges or dentures.
