Dental implants replace missing teeth. The design of a dental implant is similar to the design of a single tooth. The natural tooth is one piece commonly described as having two main parts. One part is the crown that sits above the gums and the second part is a root that is secured firmly into the jaw bone. A dental implant treatment may involve several implant pieces. One part is a restoration that is custom fabricated to match the shape of a natural tooth crown. The second part is the implant that replaces the function of a tooth root.
