DENTAL IMPLANTS

Comparing Implants to Natural Teeth

All natural teeth have a dentin core, surrounded by a layer of enamel , and are anchored in the jaw bone by their roots.

A completed dental implant has a crown, which replicates the appearance of the enamel of the surrounding natural teeth. The crown is fixed to an abutment, or post, the equivalent of the dentine core. The post is attached to the titanium implant, which is anchored in the jaw bone and acts as the root of the replacement tooth.
