Dental Implants: Case 205

Dental Implants: Case 205

This 35 Year old female from Frisco who had a front tooth with a root canal and crown done in her early teen years. The tooth broke clean at the gum-line and left her with a hole in her smile. During her consultation, we discussed several options for replacement and I encouraged her to consider an implant. An implant is the most long lasting choice, as well as the most esthetic. She has beautiful teeth and the thought of damaging the adjacent teeth in order to place a bridge wasn't appealing to her. We set-up an appointment with our Oral Surgeon here in Frisco to remove the remaining root and place the implant in the same procedure. This cuts down the healing time required by several months. During the healing phase she wore a retainer with a replacement tooth to fill the hole in her smile and protect the implant. Once the implant was healed I designed a custom abutment and all-ceramic crown to be fabricated for her. She loves her new smile and I think the results speak for themselves.
