This brilliant innovation of dental care offers physicians the opportunity to create a wonderful smile with minimal patient discomfort. AND, although implantation procedures may vary according to the number of teeth to replace, the components of the implant are the same.
Dental implants are made up of three elements:
A titanium screw to fix in the jaw.
A structure overlying the protruding area of the implant.
A crown perfectly fixed above the structure, the shape and appearance of a natural tooth, impeccable.
A few years ago, the only alternative solution was a tooth bridgework, fixed or partial, requiring periodic replacement. But studies have shown that the bridges could contribute to the deterioration and even loss of adjacent teeth (which one connects the bridge) for about seven years. Therefore, the dental implant is the best, most sustainable and safest solution when it comes to the substitution of a tooth.
