An implant is a titanium screw implanted in the jaw bone, which is a replacement for lost teeth. Some implants are in one piece, and in others, the crown and root are connected by screws. At first, the implant fixture is placed, then the dental prosthesis is added. Before the dental prosthesis (tooth, bridge or denture) is attached to the implant that holds the dental prosthesis or crown. Recovery time for ossification varies from person to person.
Suitable age for implants:
Implants can be implanted at ages younger than 18 years, but the implant prosthesis must be changed after 18 years to match it with the adjacent teeth.
