What Is a Dental Abutment?
An abutment is a metal connector that your dental professional will place into your dental implant after you've healed from your surgery. The abutment screws into the implant and securely holds your crown (your fake tooth) in place. If you have a dental bridge, crowns will be placed on two abutments, connected by other replacement teeth called pontics that rest on top of your gums.

Abutments are usually made in a dental lab and are most commonly made from titanium, gold, stainless steel, zirconia, or polyether ether ketone. Placing the abutment is a minor procedure and is often done with local anesthesia to numb any potential pain.
