The Anatomy of An Implant
As a popular and highly effective solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring oral function, dental implants have become a go-to option for many individuals seeking a durable and long-lasting tooth replacement. With all three components assembled, the dental implant functions and looks just like a natural tooth, enabling individuals to eat, speak, and smile confidently.
Implant Fixture: The implant fixture is the part that serves as the “root” or “screw” of the dental implant. It is a small, screw-shaped titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. This fixture fuses with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration, providing a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.
Abutment: The abutment is the connector piece that is attached to the top of the implant fixture after osseointegration has occurred. It protrudes above the gumline and acts as an anchor for the prosthetic tooth or crown.
Prosthetic Tooth (Crown): The prosthetic tooth, also known as the crown, is the visible part of the dental implant. It is custom-made to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth, ensuring a natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
