Whoa, what do you mean “implants”?

March 7, 2016

Everyday in the office I have at least one discussion with patients about implants. Often times people are a little unclear as to how they work. Essentially, your bone is like drywall. You don’t screw directly into drywall, you put a plug in first. Your bone is the same and the implant serves as the plug. It is threaded on the outside to grab the bone and hollow and threaded on the inside to accept a screw (or a screw in post, fastener, etc.). There are a myriad of ways to use implants in the mouth and a subject for a blog on its own. I’ll go over those in a later posting.
