of a titanium screw either having a rough or smooth surface Usually made of titanium from grade 1-4, but sometimes 5 Titanium is used because it is a lot stronger than material used in dentures The need for a strong metal is necessary to support the restoration after the procedure Titanium grades

Titanium grades 1-4 are commercially pure, meaning made of just titanium unlike grade 5 As the grade goes up, the stronger the titanium Grade 5 contains aluminum and vanadium along with titanium, making it stronger than grades 1-4 Osseointegrated implant Most

common form of dental implants used Just simply when you connect the titanium screw to the persons actual bone Surgery Before surgery the surgeon/doctor will have a consulting session with you They will take a better look at the

restoration sight in the mouth and determine various things such as, incision points, type of operation, etc. Most of the time doctors use ct scans to take a better look at the persons tooth Sometimes a stent is placed on tooth to show where the incisions will be made Success and failure This operation has a 95% success rate

Though the success rate is high, this doesnt mean it doesnt fail sometimes Post-surgery patients must continue to properly take care of their teeth The persons jaw must be strong enough to support the new artificial tooth Those with type 2 diabetes might not be able to undertake this surgery because of the lack of blood quality near the jaw Refrences Dental
