A dental implant is a state-of-the-art replacement tooth consisting of three parts: the implant itself, a connecting piece called an abutment, and a crown.
- Implant. A titanium post inserted into the jaw fuses with the bone. This creates a solid foundation for the artificial tooth it will support.
- Abutment. The abutment is affixed to the implant, and will in turn support the crown.
- Crown. The replacement tooth looks like a natural tooth, and works like one.
Because the implant itself is attached directly to the jaw, it helps to preserve bone mass. Without it the bone will recede.
One dental implant can support one artificial tooth. Several implants can support a dental bridge, and even a full dental arch.
