What is the Difference Between a Dental Implant and a Replacement Tooth?

Dental implants are threaded metal cylinders, sometimes called a post or cylinder, that act as the root of a missing tooth. They are surgically implanted to the jawline of the patient beneath the gum tissue. Then an abutment is attached on top of it.

Whereas, a dental crown is a realistically looking artificial tooth that is attached to the abutment. All three of these together create the system that replaces the missing tooth. You can replace one missing tooth or many with dental implant surgery.
