The evolution of an implant.
#1 Somehow acquire a bad tooth.
Break it off at the gums, have a root canal that fails, etc.
(example of tooth broken off at gums)
#2 Get the tooth extracted and then place the implant.
#3 Attach a post to the implant.
This will serve as a platform on which to place the crown.
#4 Place a crown on the post and you are back to full function.
This entire project took about 3 months to complete.
The patient is very happy with the results.
