What are Dental implants In Birmingham?
Dental Implants are a popular form of restorative dentistry which strives to restore the function, and the aesthetic appearance, of the teeth. Dental Implants aim to mimic the natural tooth's root and crown. Dental implants essentially consist of three aspects, the first being the titanium screw. The titanium screw is inserted into the jaw, acting as a stable base for both the abutment, and the crown.
How do Dental implants In Birmingham work?
After the stable base is inserted, it needs to be left to fuse with the jaw in order to act as a secure base. A healing time of around six to nine months is required until the abutment and the crown can be attached, during this time a temporary crown can be attached to ensure our patients' smiles are never aesthetically compromised.
The next step
After the base is fused, the abutment can be attached to link the dental screw to the porcelain crown.
