Dental implants- all ceramic crowns

As you will be aware, dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. Whether you are missing one, several or all of your teeth, dental implants can help. In the past, dental implant crowns (the actual tooth replacement) was a combination of a titanium abutment (screwed into the implant) and a porcelain fused to metal crown.

Case of the month- September 2014

Our case of the month for September is one which involves dental implants to replace missing back teeth. It is crucial to replace missing teeth at the back for a number of reasons. These involve: 1.

This could have a detrimental effect on the occlusion (bite) and cause major dental issues for the future. 3. To prevent the jaw bone from shrinking which c… READ MORE
