Dental Implants in Atlanta
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, usually made of titanium. A complete dental implant has three components:
- Implant – a titanium root form that is surgically placed into the jawbone
- Abutment – a connector, placed on top the implant root form before a crown is secured to it
- Crown – a restoration to replace the visible, white portion of your tooth
One of our oral surgeons will place the implant and the abutment, and your general dentist will place the crown.
