What’s the difference between a dental implant and a crown?


A lot of confusion exists between what is
an implant? The implant itself is actually that screw part that goes into the jaw bone.
Then the part you’re actually looking for is that white tooth that goes on top, that’s
called the crown. A periodontist will place the implant itself and then your general dentist
or a prosthodontist puts the crown, the white part, on top.
