Dental Implants

Dental Implant

A dental implant consists of 3 parts – implant screw, implant abutment and implant crown. A dental implant screw is a made of titanium and is placed into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth (the next generation implant screws are made of zirconia; however, they are still not yet available in the United States). The implant abutment is what connects the implant screw to the implant crown.
