The dentist who treated him informed him that his tooth was “loose” and that it needed to be extracted.which is why I had to start treatment with implants.

After the tooth was removed, the dentist began the process to place an implant, but, Instead of just drilling into the spot where the new tooth was going to be, it went through patient Yilmaz’s jaw and into the bone hole behind his left eye.which caused cerebrospinal fluid to enter.
