Single Dental Implant (Case 2)

A female patient in her early 50’s had an accident as a teenager damaging her front tooth. The tooth had been root filled at the time and had lasted many years. However a problem with the root developed and the tooth needed to be removed. The implant was placed (by another dentist) and a temporary crown was immediately placed. The implant was allowed to integrate with the patients’ bone, then the final crown was placed by me. Care was taken to develop the shape of the gum around the neck of the tooth so the tooth was well ‘framed’ and matched the shape of the adjacent front tooth.
