This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. The different steps involved in this procedure are:


Before the procedure - The dentist examines and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.


Installing the implant - The implant is now installed. At this time, a temporary tooth is placed which allows you to eat and functions almost like a normal tooth.


Attaching the new crown - The final step is the placement of the artificially moulded tooth. The new tooth is installed in its place for life. No additional treatment is needed.  


The end result - The new tooth is now fit and will function just like a natural tooth. There is a need to follow the usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean.
