Xray of dental implant

User Level:

Posted by: Katerine  (5 years ago)
Hello. I just need some opinion of professionals . My dentist redoing my implant .the first one was rejected after one year and he said that the reason was not enough bone. I had bone craft in July and in November had implant( first part of it). Today he called me and said he wants to take a X-ray to see how is healing. On the X ray I saw that the screw is not straight , it looks like it wryly put . It is looks like it under angle towards to second molar( my implant is replacement of first molar)when I asked him why it's not straight he said it should be like that and he put it close to my sinus for better fit. Please, someone tell me if it correct .sometimes I just think my dentist doesn't know what he is doing .

Don't know with what image I am supposed to evaluate it. Implants are supposed to be placed as perpendicular as possible to the occlusal plane for posteriors. The angle of anteriors is driven by esthetics. Generally, they should be fairly parallel to adjacent roots. Slight variance from perpendicular is not a problem, and the abuttments that can screw into the top can be bought pre-angled.

All this is to avoid off-axis loading of implants, which increases chance of bone loss.
