Dental Implantology

A dental implant is also known as an endosseous implant or fixture and medical basic that borders with the bone of the jaw or skull to delivery a dental prosthesis such as a top, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic presenter. The basis for current dental implants is a biologic procedure is called osseointegration, in which materials such as titanium form an cherished bond to bone. The implant fixture is first located so that it is likely to osseointegrate, then a dental prosthetic is added. A adjustable amount of corrective time is required for osseointegration before either the dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge or denture) is close to the implant or an support is placed which will grasp a dental prosthetic/crown.
