It may take weeks for the screw, which acts as the root of the tooth, to be attached to the relevant section and for this section to become usable for the upper tooth. Some points to be considered for the successful completion of the process can be listed as follows. – The metal material to be used for the root of the tooth has dimensions in certain standards. (The part of the mouth to be treated must be suitable for the effective application of this screw.) – The bone quality of the person to be treated.
