Dentistry: pictures before and after
Click dentures - Jawbone reconstruction
A dental implant or mini dental implant is an artificial replacement of the tooth root. Implants look like screws and are made from titanium. The dentist differentiates between single stage and two-stage implants. The difference lies in the treatment stages:
- With a single stage implant the implant is fitted in a single session. One section is anchored to the bone and one section protrudes just above the gum. These two sections form a whole and after a while a crown or porcelain crown can be fitted on the protruding section.
- With a two-stage implant, in the first stage the implant is anchored to the bone and then covered once more with the gum. A few months later, once the implant has grown into the bone, the second stage is performed, in which a (healing) abutment is fitted on to the in-grown implant. A few weeks later, a crown can be fitted on to the abutment.
