Dental implants are common place when performing a tooth restoration without the use of bridges. The process requires a couple of visits to achieve. It starts with the insertion of a precision crafted titanium threaded piece into the opening left behind my the missing tooth. Once the implant has had the opportunity to properly anchor to the jaw bone, another visit is required. This second visit is where the dental implant, or crown, is attached to the implant device.
