A Little About Dental Implants
The best way to describe a single tooth dental implant is to make the comparison to a natural tooth itself. The implant(1), like the root of your tooth, is what anchors your tooth to your jaw. The abutment(2), which attaches the implant to the implant crown. And lastly there is the implant crown(3), it is the part of your tooth that is visible to the naked eye.
