The topology of fractal tiles giving rise to a tessellation of the plane is investigated. This work leads to several criteria for a tile to be homeorphic to a closed disk. The criteria are all established by considering the neighbor configurations of the tiles in the tiling. A special class of tiles associated to canonical number systems is studied. The inner component of such a tile is described with the help of a finite graph.
