Three components of dental implants

Since many years ago, people have used dental implants as a durable, aesthetic substitute for dentures and bridges. However, a thorough examination of each component of a dental implant is necessary to fully comprehend why it is the best option for replacing missing teeth. There are three key elements that have been consistently employed for years and are regarded as reliable by the majority of dentists, resulting in effective therapy.

Dental implant components

The Fixture, also known as the implant post, abutment, and crown are the three primary components of the majority of dental implants.

Fixture (implant post)

Using cutting-edge computer assisted surgery, the fixture is a screw that is placed into the jawbone during a brief surgical operation. Its design makes the actual fixture somewhat resemble the tooth's root, thus if you view an implant post, you might notice that its end is tapered like a real tooth root.

Since there is such a wide range of diameters for dental fixtures, dentists can select the one that is most suitable for the tooth that needs repair.

For instance, an implant with a small diameter is more suited for incisors, which are smaller, and an implant with a greater diameter is better suited for molars, which are larger. The size and positioning of the tooth that needs to be replaced also affect the dental implant posts.

For instance, small dental implants typically have longer posts for improved strength and stability. One of the most common fixtures may be 18 mm in length. The abutment may be fastened onto a traditional dental fixture because it is hollow.

The implant is not often immediately repaired with the prosthesis thanks to a three-piece implant design that enables the implant posts to be covered up for osseointegration. Instead, when the implant dentist is prepared to create and fit the implant prosthesis, the abutment is attached.

It will take about 4-6 months to recuperate after the implant has been surgically placed before the next stage of the dental implant procedure can start.


The abutment, a tiny connector, is placed between the prosthetic and the implant post. While the other side is utilized to attach a dental prosthetic, the other side is made to screw into the interior of the implant post. Depending on the kind of prosthetic that needs to be supported, numerous types of abutments may be employed. In contrast to an abutment used for an implant-supported denture, which may have unique attachments that can clip into the denture, a dental crown, for instance, may simply resemble a stumpy screw. To ensure a natural appearance after the prosthetic has been mounted, some abutments can also be positioned at various angles. The abutment may be inserted along with the implant post or it may be screwed into the post after osseointegration, depending on the method employed by your implant dentist.

After taking an impression of the implant's top using the neighboring teeth and gingiva, custom abutments can be created at the dental lab. The patient's needs and the position of the teeth determine the size, shape, and material.


Most often, a prosthetic limb replacement—typically an arm or a leg—is referred to by the name prosthetic.

But when it comes to dental implants, a prosthesis is a substitute tooth. A dental implant prosthesis refers to two distinct components: the metal insert that attaches to the jawbone and the actual tooth itself. By definition, a prosthetic is an artificial portion of the body.

The prosthetic can be screwed into place or cemented onto the abutment and is composed of a number of materials, including porcelain or ceramic.

You can have a prosthetic depending on the number of teeth being replaced:

Crown: If only one tooth needs to be replaced, a dental crown will be affixed on the abutment. Most dental crowns are made of ceramic material or a combination of metal and porcelain. The crown will be screwed or bonded onto the abutment to produce a tooth-like appearance.

Bridge: A dental bridge could be used if you're replacing several teeth in a row. Typically, porcelain bridges are linked to just two implants, which keep them firmly in place. A dental bridge's artificial teeth will be color-matched to the natural teeth in order to fit in.

Denture: An implant-supported denture may be utilized by patients who are replacing a whole arch of teeth. Conventional dentures are suction-held in place and rest on the gums. Dentures that are supported by dental implants are held firmly in place. Patients who wear dentures supported by implants often have a more attractive grin. These dental restorations are often created using porcelain or plastic teeth fastened to an acrylic base that is painted to resemble the color of the gum line.
