You probably know that the majority of an iceberg is actually under the surface of the water, which is where referring to something as just the tip of the iceberg comes from. Your teeth are not like an iceberg, and yet there can still be enough of the tooth beneath the surface of your gums to reveal. But why would you want to display the parts of your teeth, that have been concealed beneath your gums?
Tooth problems can make talking or smiling and eating stressful or create significant health issues for you. Fortunately, several dental procedures are available today to correct many tooth issues. Dental implants are some of the most common procedures done by dentists. The procedure is done primarily to replace missing teeth, which could be a result of an accident, gum disease, severe tooth decay, aging, etc. It involves inserting an 'implant' (a replacement tooth root) into your jawbone to act as an anchor (root) for the artificial replacement tooth.
