what is a screw in tooth ?
Q. What is a screw in tooth ? I have a denture on a plate for a missin front tooth . My dentist wont do a bridge on nhs but says he will do a screw in tooth . Are these cosmetically awful ?
A. I am not sure what you mean by “screw in” tooth. If the root of your tooth is present and healthy a post can be put inside the root and a new tooth (crown) attached. The other option is a dental implant which is placed in area with no teeth.
