 Okay. So my tooth had this HUGE metal filling in it. 
Well, now most of what was left of the tooth broke off.
What now?!

Well there are a couple of options.
One of the best options to to do an implant.
There are a number of reasons for this but that
would take more time then we have right now.
First step is to extract the broken tooth. 
In this case we placed a bone graft and waited a few weeks 
but that doesn't always have to be the case.

After the healing time we place a titanium implant.
Looks scary? 
It's not.
It's basically just an artificial tooth.
If we can replace hearts and hips then why not a tooth?


In about 6 weeks we will put a beautiful white (no metal)
crown on this implant and the patient should have no more troubles.
