How do you know if you have a dental implant?
What is a dental implant?
- A dental implant is a piece of titanium or other materials that looks like a screw. It is put into the jaw where the missing tooth’s roots were. Over time, bone grows around the implant, which helps to hold it in place. An artificial tooth, or crown, is then attached to the metal to fill in the gap left by the missing tooth.
How to identify a breast implant?
- To be able to identify an implant, we need to look at all its features, especially those that can differentiate it from other implants. Most of the time, a panoramic radiograph is not enough to provide all the necessary information as they lack details.
Which side of the radiograph is better for dental implants?
- The radiograph on the right side is much better. Intraoral clinical elements are also very important for the identification of dental implants. The characteristics of the prosthetic parts that fit on the implant provide valuable information.
