what is a dental implant?

The dental implants Tijuana is an artificial tooth root, in other words, it is a titanium screw that is inserted into the bone of the jaw or maxilla to replace the missing tooth as if it were a natural tooth.

Dental implants have a cylindrical or conical shape, with a length and a diameter selected according to the amount of the bone. As already demonstrated, the dental implant does not cause any type of adverse change in the body.

The parts of a dental implant

The dental implant is made up of two main parts:

The screw;
The pillar (the stump).
The screw is surgically inserted into the mandibular or maxillary bone of the patient, while the abutment has the function of creating a connection between the screw and the prosthetic structure (dental crown). The crown is not part of the dental implant and is paid separately, but together with the screw and the abutment it replaces the missing tooth.

Intervention planning

There are a number of contraindications for dental implantology. For this reason, before making this type of intervention, the doctor must be informed of all the patient’s health problems. If the patient is not sure, it is best to perform all the necessary analyzes and make sure that there are no health problems and also to see what types of alternative dental treatments exist in the case of detection of any contraindications. It is also very important to inform your doctor about allergies to anesthesia or other medications.

To plan the surgery, the dentist will need to see a panoramic radiograph (or, as the case may be, a CT scan) that is done in order to see the quantity and quality of the bone to fix the position of the nerve and to establish the length, the thickness and the direction of placement of the dental implant.
