Implants consist of three main components: the implant post, abutment, and dental crown. The implant post is a small, titanium screw that is surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as a replacement for the missing tooth root. The abutment connects the implant post to the dental crown, which is the visible portion of the implant that resembles a natural tooth.
One of the main benefits of dental implants is their ability to restore oral function. Because the implant post is anchored in the jawbone, dental implants provide a stable foundation for the dental crown, allowing patients to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
