Photo Of Dental Implant
The photo of dental implant page! check out all of the pictures i've posted here!
An illustration of a dental implant - In this picture you can see the implant placed in the bone.
Notice that the implant is located in the bone below the gum / gingiva level and can't be seen. An abutment is connected to the implant and rises above the gum level. A temporary or final Porcelain crown is built around the abutment.
Once the whole procedure is completed the only visible part is the crown that looks like a natural tooth.
Dental implants come in different lengths and diameters.
Lengths vary from 7 millimeter (mm) - up to 18 mm and their width varies from 3.5 mm (diameter) - up to 5.75 mm. Mini dental implants can go as narrow as 2 mm in diameter.
Below is a photo of 4 dental implants manufactured by MIS-Implants. These are 2 stage "internal hex" self threading implants. All have a diameter of 3.75 mm and lengths of 7,8,16,18.
In every site of implantation you would generally prefer to use the longest and widest dental implant possible for the present conditions of height and width of the jaw bone.
A picture of a MIS-Implants 2 stage hex implant. It is called "Hex" as an abbreviation for Hexagon, which describes the type of connection the dental implant uses to connect to the abutment. Every dental implant company has their distinguished connection type and in many cases they protect that connection with a patent.
The most common connection type that is used toady is the internal hexagon.
For you the patient - it makes absolutely no difference what connection type your dentist uses.

Notice the Part on the bottom that looks like the implant is chipped or broken? Well,
That is purposely done to allow bone chips to collect into those spaces when the dental implant is screwed in.
If you look closely you can see how rough the dental implants surface is! This is done to increase the surface face of the dental implants and increase the success rates of proper osseointegration.
