The parts of a dental implant: Implant, Abutment and Crown

Dental implants are nothing new. They have been used to permanently replace teeth since the mid 60s. The Astra Tech Implant Systemâ„¢ has been on the market over 25 years. Based on years of extensive research, we have developed a unique dental implant system that provides a secure anchor for new, natural-looking teeth.


Dental implant

A small titanium screw is inserted into your jawbone. Titanium is a metal accepted by the body and heals together with the bone tissue to form a new, stable tooth root.



Dental implant with abutment

An abutment is a ceramic or titanium component that ensures a secure fit between the dental implant and the crown.



Dental implant with crown

Once the dental implant and the abutment are in place, your dental professional fits the crown, the bridge or the prosthesis.
