Implant restorations

1. Screw-retained implant 

Screw-retained implant is one of the most optimal methods for fixed dentures to recover lost teeth, which is done by screwing titanium implant into the jaw bone tissue in the missing tooth area to replace the root.

Advantages:

  • Aesthetics improvement  
  • Chewing function restoration 
  • No effect on surrounding teeth
  • Biological compatibility enhancement due to being made of titanium

Indications:

  • One or some teeth loss
  • Full teeth loss 

2. Cement-retained implant 

Cement-retained implant is one of the most optimal methods for fixed dentures to restore lost teeth, which is now done by attaching specialized cement to the implant to perfect patient’s natural tooth-like shape, function and sensitivity 

Advantages:

  • High aesthetics
  • Natural tooth-like structure

Disadvantages:

  • Irritation and even bone resorption around the Implant caused by excess cement

Indications:

  • Implant placed into the missing teeth position.
