Essential to a dental implant restoration, dental implant abutments make possible even the most challenging dental restoration

Dental Implant Abutments ExplainedShown here (greatly enlarged) are the three pieces that make up a full dental implant restoration.

The Crown
Here seen from the side, this is a front lateral incisor.

The Abutment
The post, which is the upper portion of the abutment, will in this case have the crown cemented onto it after the lower section is attached to the implant below. Notice the curved horizontal line which is designed to fit the lower curve of the crown. None of the abutment will be visible once the crown is fitted onto it.

The Dental Implant
None of the implant is visible once the abutment and crown have been fitted.
