IMPLANT Tooth implant replaces the actual tooth root. During the operation the implants are put into the place of the lost teeth and then the crowns, bridges and protheses are fixed in this. Tooth implants are usually made from titan as it integrates properly into the bone due to its chemical and physical features and the human body totally accepts it, which are the basic criteria for a successful implant.
Modern dental implants consist of 2(3) main parts: The implant, the artificial root that is placed into the jawbone and the visible tooth reconstruction, the implant crown and the implant stump, called the abutment. This abutment is screwed into the implant and is usually made of break-resistant special zirkonoxide ceramic or titanium.
