Placing an implant in the place of a missing tooth is the process of tooth implantation. It is a self-explanatory process that replacing an old tooth with a new one is the process of a single tooth dental implant.
These dental implants are commonly out of titanium.
The dentist will make a hole through proper surgical procedures and will insert the implant as a new root for the teeth into the jawbone. The space of a missing tooth is filled using the cap-like crown at the place of the gap between the teeth. This avoids giving an empty look inside your mouth cavity.
