Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into frozen tundra and then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea. Defeat devious teeth with this Groupon.

- 20-minute implant consultation
- Two implants
- Two crowns
- Two stock abutments
A dental implant made of metallic compounds holds a replacement tooth snugly in place, where it may receive radio signals from lost cargo ships. X-rays identify the source of any problems and elucidate possible posts, otherwise known as abutments, which protrude from the gum line and keep artificial teeth from cracking. The dentist crowns the abutment to protect the gums and any underlying tooth material. The procedure takes three to six months to complete, depending on its complexity.<p>
