Structure of an Implant

A dental implant consists of three parts:

  • Implant: This is the part that is embedded in your jawbone that provides the base for the rest of the structure. It fuses with the bone in a process called osseointegration, making it a secure anchor for the replacement crown.
  • Abutment: Made of titanium and zirconium, the abutment attaches to the implant and provides a structure for a sculpted porcelain crown to connect to.
  • Crown: This is the part that you see above the gum line. Crowns are usually made of porcelain, and they are cemented to the abutment.
