Types of Dental Tooth Implants

General Component Parts of A Dental Implant

A dental implant is a titanium screw that is carefully positioned into the jawbone to act as a foundation for supporting artificial teeth, crowns, bridges or dentures.

dental implant may also be viewed very smiliar to that of a natural tooth: titanium post : that acts as the root replacement embed in the jaw bone abutment & crown : the false tooth replacement placed over the implant post

Dental Implant              Natural Tooth

A natural tooth has two main parts:   root : which is in the bone and holds the tooth in place crown : the visible teeth part most people think of as the tooth

An implant restoration is thus made up of 3 main parts: dental-implant-parts1. Implant Posts: An implant post is a titanium “screw” surgically inserted into the bone of the jaw that act as a replacement root for the missing tooth. Implant posts are normally threaded on its external surface and the internal aspect of the implant is usually a hollow well with screw threads. Titanium is chosen for this purpose because titanium is inert, biocompatible and integrates with the surrounding jaw bone with minimal risk of infection. 2. Abutment : An abutment acts as the “stump” that holds the crown or false tooth that is screwed into the implant posts. 3. Crown : The crown is the visible false tooth of the implant restoration. Crowns on implants resembles a crown on natural tooth in almost every way. Crowns on implants can be porcelain fused to metal crowns or full ceramic crowns.
