Dental Implants

This patient presented with a broken tooth (#9, the left central incisor).  He was also unhappy about the color and shape of his front teeth.  We had 3.5 months before his sister’s wedding so we extracted the tooth and placed an implant and temporary crown on the same day!  He didn’t want to wear a removable denture during the healing period.  Notice how great the gums around the temporary crown looks at one week. With the help of his general dentist, he was able to make it to his sister’s wedding with a brand new smile.

This patient presented with an infected tooth (tooth #9, left central incisor) and the implant was placed at the day of extraction.  Due to the severity of the infection, bone grafting was performed simultaneously and allowed to heal.  After allowing some healing time, the tissue was shaped and the final crown was placed.  The abundance of bone is very important in anterior esthetics.  Look at the final crown and how natural the tooth looks!

This patient had tooth #9 (left central incisor) that was failing (notice the redness around the tooth from the infection).  After attempts with root canals to save the tooth, it was decided to extract and place an implant.  The patient was not going to have a removable flipper as she was a young professional.  We extracted her teeth, placed an implant and temporary crown on the same day!  Her final crown is beautiful and undetectable.  No one would know there’s an implant in its position.

This patient presented with a root fracture.  The tooth was removed and implant placed.  A temporary crown was also placed on the day of surgery so the patient did not have to wear a removable flipper.  Notice how beautiful the gums around the teeth are shaped after just one week of healing.  The patient is still waiting to place her final crown (no pictures of the final crown).

This patient presented with a broken tooth.  She did not want anything removable during the interim because her occupation consisted of speaking with many people all day.  So, we extracted the tooth (#9, the left central incisor) and placed an implant and temporary crown on the same day!  She didn’t have to wear a temporary flipper and see how great she looks right after the surgery and at one week.  The patient is still waiting to place her final crown (no pictures of the final crown).

This patient presented with a broken root on tooth #11, the left canine tooth.  His occupation involved many public speaking events so he did not want a removable flipper during the implant healing phase.  So we extracted the tooth, placed the implant and a temporary crown all on the same day.  Look at how beautiful his gums responded in one week and the patient was very happy with his final crown and it is undetectable.
