Dental implants are used to retain artificial teeth, facial prosthetics or to act as anchor points for orthodontics.
When replacing missing teeth, a dental implant can support a dental prosthesis. Modern dental implants make use of osseointegration, the biologic process where bone fuses tightly to the surface of specific materials such as titanium and some ceramics. This strong join can support physical loads for decades without failure.
For individual tooth replacement, an implant abutment is first secured to the implant with an abutment screw. A crown (the dental prosthesis) is then connected to the abutment with dental cement, a small screw, or fused with the abutment as one piece during fabrication.
At Mackenzie Keele Dental Care, implant fixtures are placed by Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon (OMFS) and is then restored in a dental clinic to provide you with the best possible outcome. Proper treatment planning is the most important key to success of implant dentistry.
