You need to know the components of dental implants

Dental implants are gradually growing in popularity as one of the most common solutions for those who need to replace missing teeth because everyone wants to have a beautiful smile. However, what are they and how do they operate?

The many parts of a dental implant will be broken down in this blog post so you can understand how they function. Continue reading to learn everything there is to know about dental implants, including their various components as well as their longevity and price.

How do dental implants function? What are they?

A dental prosthesis that appears and operates like real teeth is called a dental implant. Dental implants, the gold standard in tooth replacement, connect with the jaw bone to support fake teeth securely.

The dental appliance is implanted into the jawbone by surgery. A titanium post is used in dental implants to replace the missing tooth's root. In the same way that roots would hold real teeth in place, this safe device is inserted into your jawbone and aids in holding the replacement teeth in place. An artificial crown is then fastened to this stable device. The crown has the same appearance and functionality as real teeth.

Getting dental implants requires a lengthy process. The implant post typically requires three to six months to properly fuse with the jaw bone. These posts act as anchors for dental appliances that are created to order, such as dentures, dental bridges, or single crowns.

Your dentist will create a specialized treatment plan for you and walk you through each step of the tooth implant procedure so that you feel more at ease and knowledgeable during your treatment.

Which parts make up a dental implant?

Dental implants that are typically used are made as a three-piece system. Each component of an implant serves a vital purpose and together they produce a safe and convincing tooth replacement. These are what they are:

The post-implant: A screw-like implant post is placed into the jawbone.

The implant post's extension, the abutment is joined to the implant post. The dental prosthetic will be fastened to the abutment.

the artificial tooth: This can be a denture, dental bridge, or crown. It aids in restoring the teeth's look and functionality.

What does an implant post mean?

The primary element of a dental implant is an implant post. It is also known as an implant screw because it screws onto the jawbone directly to stop movement and enable implants to endure biting forces similar to those from regular eating.

Medical-grade titanium, a metal that is well tolerated by the body, is typically used for implant posts. Titanium is a perfect material for an implant because it is durable, light, and strong and provides for a long-lasting fixture in the mouth.

Zirconia is a biocompatible ceramic material that can be used to create implant posts in addition to titanium. Patients with bone loss and low bone quality or density frequently use zirconia implant posts. It is more resistant to harsh temperatures than titanium and has a higher shear strength.

The implant post will be put into the jawbone, where it will eventually undergo a process known as osseointegration in which it fuses with the bone. Once fused, it will serve as the replacement for a tooth root, securing the implant in the jawbone. As a result, you can get an implant that works and feels much like your original teeth.

What is an abutment?

Between the implant post and the dental prosthetics, there is a connecting element called an implant abutment. By establishing a solid connection between the implant and the crown, this connector component is crucial in implant-supported restorations.

There are numerous materials that can be used to create the abutment. This covers non-precious metals like titanium alloy as well as valuable metals like gold or palladium. Abutment styles might differ. For instance, an abutment used for dental crowns typically looks like a long screw. On the other hand, abutments for dentures feature fasteners that allow the dentures to snap into place.

Your dentist can make recommendations on the right abutment material and design for your implant repair based on clinical considerations including biomechanics and aesthetics.

What kinds of prosthetics or restorations can be attached to dental implants?

Bridges, dentures, and other types of restorations can all be supported by dental implants.

Crowned teeth

An abutment can be used to secure a dental crown to an implant post in order to replace a single tooth. Custom-made from porcelain or other materials, the crown restores complete function while blending in with the neighboring teeth.


A fixed prosthetic called a dental bridge is used to replace one or more teeth in a row. It consists of pontics, which take the position of the other missing teeth, and crowns fastened to the abutment of the implant.


An implant-supported denture or overdenture may be suggested for patients who are missing more than a few teeth in an arch in order to increase stability and comfort. With the use of unique connectors, this kind of restoration can attach to 4-6 implant posts and hold a denture in place. Patients may require a partial or a complete denture, depending on how many teeth need to be replaced.
