Dental Implants consist of a titanium screw that goes in the bone in order to replace a missing tooth or missing teeth. The first surgery is when the screw is placed. The patient is usually previously treated with antibiotic to prevent any type of infection due to complications. There is a healing screw placed in the implant and it is left dormant sometimes covered by tissue and bone will most likely grow around it. It will stay dormant for 3-4 months until a second surgery will take place to uncover the healing screw and a healing abutment will be placed to shape the tissue which will receive the final abutment which acts as the post for the future crown.
