Dental implants are "Miracle Teeth". They look, feel and function just like real teeth. Today, people with one or multiple missing teeth can easily replace them with dental implants.
The body of the implant which looks like a post and is made of a biocompatible metal "Titanium" is inserted in position of the missing tooth or teeth. Then an abutment which has the implant crown on top will be screwed and cemented to the post. The procedure can be done in one visit if the bone around the dental implant is adequate to stabilize the titanium post. Otherwise, a bone grafting procedure becomes necessary to provide sufficient bone around the implant.
