A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium which replaces the missing tooth. The implant surgeon inserts the implant into the location where the tooth needs to be replaced. The titanium then heals and fuses with bone over the next few months. After "osseointegration", an abutment is attached, which is the component that connects the implant to the crown. Just like the tooth root did before, the implant then builds a stable foundation for the crown, which will become the visible part of your new tooth.
