• The implant is made of titanium and surgically placed in the jawbone. You may have one implant for each missing tooth. In other cases, your dentist may skip one or more spaces because there’s not enough jawbone, or because the space is too close to a nerve or sinus cavity.
  • The abutment is a cylinder made of titanium that is screwed onto the implant.
  • The restoration is a series of crowns connected to form a bridge. They are made of porcelain, attached and fused to a substructure of metal.
