Front Tooth Replacement: What’s The Best Option for You?
Dental implant procedure is carried out under local anesthesia. Small incision is given at the front tooth region. Broken tooth was removed carefully to avoid damage to the surrounding bone as we have done immediate placement of implant to minimize healing period and patient sitting. Temporary acrylic cap was given on top of implant.
After completion of 3 months the appropriate healing patient was recalled for the final crown. Temporary cap was removed, and final measurement sent to the lab for fabrication of implant prosthesis. Cement retained zirconia crown fixed on dental implant with luting cement.
Patient is happy with the result and a new smile. He has got back his lost smile with his new teeth which fulfill both natural function and esthetic.
