A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root and commonly it is screw or cylinder shaped. Each implant is placed into a socket carefully drilled at the precise location of the intended tooth. Often the implant can be placed at the same time as removal of the tooth, all on the same day.
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 roughnesses 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. Click here for illustrated information.
I was highly recommended to come here, which I did. I came and made the appointment. I found the staff very professional. Then when I sat down with the Dentist Dan, he went through all my options because obviously the damage to my teeth was quite severe...
I'm very satisfied with the job so I was very pleased with what went on and I was very pleased with the treatment.
Both my wife and myself have been looked after by Julian and his staff for over 20 years. From the early beginnings at Cropton House to Elbow Lane which has recently been totally refurbished and upgraded. We have enjoyed excellent service in a welcoming environment whether at a prearranged appointment or emergency visit. Having recently had an Implant Procedure I became aware of the vast improvements and innovations available at the practice. On my recommendation as to how easy, (almost enjoyable) and interesting the procedure was Isobel has decided to follow my example. The finished implants are unbelievably secure , comfortable and well able to attack any amount of sugared almonds.
A warm welcome, excellent service and the expertise of all make a visit stress free and well worthwhile, Thank you all for endeavours.
