Dental Implants are a permanent fixture that is surgically installed into a patient’s jaw or skull to support a prosthesis. Dental prothesis include fixtures such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an anchor.
Depending on the patient’s treatment options, the final prosthetic can be fixed to the bone or setup so that the implant is removable. When fixed, the implant is installed utilizing a lag screw or dental cement. When the implant is removable, a corresponding adapter is placed in the prosthetic so that the two pieces can be secured together.
