Dental Implants essentially are the closest thing in replacing a lost natural tooth. Implants simulate natural teeth in appearance and function and consist of 3 components;
The titanium implant itself, the abutment and the porcelain crown.
The implant simulates the root portion of a tooth, the part you don't see. It acts as a foundation to hold in place the part of the tooth which you see in the mouth, called the crown. The abutment is merely a connector linking the crown (usually made of porcelain) to the implant.
Implants can range from a single unit to full arch replacements.
