The Parts of a Dental Implant

When teeth are missing for any reason, dental implants can come to the rescue. They simulate tooth roots and provide a strong base for artificial teeth placed on top. Implants are a popular and long-lasting solution that avoid the hassles associated with dentures or bridges. Implants fit, function, look and feel like natural teeth.

The reason that dental implants feel so secure is that the titanium rod is inserted directly into the jaw bone so that it fuses to the bone. The result is a strong anchor for a new tooth placed on top that has no risk of loosening or falling out. You’re able to speak, eat and laugh without concerns for the security of your restoration.

There are three main parts of a dental implant:

  • Implant – a titanium screw or rod provides a new tooth root. It is surgically inserted into the jaw bone to become permanently attached over time in a process called osseointegration. The implant is bio-compatible, reliable, and helps prevent bone loss caused by missing teeth.
  • Abutment – also made of titanium, this piece permanently connects the screw with the new tooth. It is the piece to which the artificial tooth attaches.
  • Crown – the customized artificial tooth, often made of porcelain, that is securely placed on top of the abutment. It is the part that is visible in your smile and is similar in appearance and strength to a natural tooth.

Dental implants may be the solution for replacing a single missing tooth, multiple teeth, or even a complete upper or lower set of teeth. Dentists or oral surgeons who are trained and experienced in dental implants have great success in providing this life-long way to restore beautiful and fully functional smiles.
