Have you ever wondered how dental implants work? Dental implants are the optimal solution for replacing failing or missing teeth. They ideal as they do not affect the adjacent teeth, and can restore the function and aesthetics of the missing teeth.

The dental implant consists of several components that are stacked on top of each other. These components are then bolted or cemented together.

The implant fixture is the anchor that is embedded in the jaw bone. This serves as the foundation for the missing tooth. It is usually made of titanium or titanium alloy, although other materials such as zirconia have also been used.

The implant crown, is the replacement for the visible part of the tooth. It is connected to the  dental implants by a retaining abutment screw. The implant crown mimics the appearance and function of the missing tooth.
