Here we will talk about dental implants and the recommendations that should remain followed when choosing the treatment.

What is a Dental Implant?

When we lose a tooth and replace it with an implant, it is the one that replaces the root of the tooth. The crown on the implant is the one that exchanges the tooth that we will finally see. In other words, the implant will remain the holding pillar of the upcoming tooth. The implants in the teeth, generally, have the shape of a screw to thread into the bone where they will remain placed. Although there are different shapes and tapers, currently, the maximum common are screwed. You can consult our article, are dental implants for life? Where we answer frequently requested questions about implants in teeth.

Conical or Cylindrical

Then dependent on the specific situations, the types of dental implants can be conical or cylindrical.

One difference to consider is the connection platform of the prosthesis, that is, of the crown that will remain placed on the implant. Commonly speaking, there are two kinds of implants in teeth: external connection and internal connection.

Now the internal connection the crown is connected secret the implant. In the external reference, the pinnacle remains placed resting on the implant. Nowadays, the maximum used is the internal connection because it has a series of advantages over the external one. The loosening of the prosthesis is extra minor, and errors in implant placement can remain corrected.

External connection is the one he used initially, called the Branemark type. Still, it is starting to remain less used due to the inconveniences of relaxing, aesthetics in anterior teeth and less possibility of correcting errors.

Techniques For Insertion The Tooth On Top Of The Implant

Regarding how to place the tooth on top of the implant, there are no unscrew or tighten if it ever lose numerous techniques.

Screw-retained prosthesis in which the tooth remains screwed implant. In this case, it remains recommended that the screw-retained abutment remain prepared by CAD-CAM, designed by computer and composed on a milling machine to ensure reasonable adjustments. Never cast as it is wildly inaccurate.

Cemented in which the tooth remains cemented on an implant. This cement, which means glued, is cemented on a pillar connected to the implant. It consumes the problem of not existence able to unscrew or tighten if it ever loosens.

A mixed technique is to cement the prosthesis on a screwed abutment. And leave access to tighten and loosen if necessary. In this case, it would be cement-screwed. Which has the advantage of the same connection to the implant of the CAD-CAM screw connection, and in addition. The clamping screw can be tightened or loosened.

In short, as recommendations, the implant of choice must remain an internal connection, threaded and with a prosthesis or screwed or cement-screwed. And, of sequence, confirm the reliability of the implant that they are going to place.
