When patients ask about a dental implant, they often don’t realize that a dental implant is not a single piece with a porcelain crown on it.
Components of a dental implant
There are 3 parts to a dental implant; the small implant part that gets inserted into the bone underneath your gum tissue, the abutment piece which goes into the implant part (that will then show above the gum tissue) and the final implant crown which will be placed over the abutment piece. There are also different implant systems.
