Plaque and Calculus

What are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are made up of three different parts:

A dental implant is a fine titanium screw, titanium has been used extensively and successfully in reconstructive surgery for many years as it naturally integrates with bone.

Dental implants are placed in the jaw bone and can be used to support crowns, bridges or dentures. If you only need to replace one tooth, a single dental implant may be suitable. If you have more than one missing teeth, an implant supported bridge may be more suitable compared to multiple single dental implants. If you need to replace a full arch of teeth, an implant-supported denture may be most useful.

What causes plaque and calculus?
