A Closer Look at Implants
The Three Components of implants. There are three components of an implant, the anchor (which is surgically imbedded into the bone), the post (to which the tooth attaches) and the actual artificial tooth. Several steps are usually required in placing implants. Depending on the type of implant, these steps may vary. A thorough evaluation must be made which includes a clinical examination and a careful review of your dental and medical history.
During the dental examination, we will check the condition of your mouth, the supporting bone in your jaws and the way your upper & lower teeth fit together. CT-scans will be taken and a determination will be made as to whether you are a good candidate for implants. In either case, thoughtful recommendations regarding optional treatments will be offered and discussed.
