The parts of a dental implant: Implant, Abutment and Crown

Implant

Dental implant

A small titanium screw is inserted into your jawbone. Titanium is a metal accepted by the body and heals together with the bone tissue to form a new, stable tooth root.

     

Abutment

An abutment is a ceramic or titanium component that ensures a secure fit between the dental implant and the crown.

     

Crown

Once the dental implant and the abutment are in place, your dental professional fits the crown, the bridge or the prosthesis.
