To replace a single tooth
If you have lost a single tooth or if you are about to loose one of your teeth because of caries, gum issues, or root failure, a single tooth implant is probably the most appropriate replacement solution for you.
Contrary to what is common practice elsewhere, if a problematic tooth needs to be extracted, we can usually replace it immediately with a dental implant and a fixed temporary crown at the time of surgery, except in rare occasions.
VThe patient leaves the office with no apparent trauma and no sutures, making this a very popular treatment with our patients.
The approach that we have used for the past 10 years on more than 1,500 patients has several advantages :
- The extraction and implant placement are non-traumatic.
- The procedure is almost always performed without stitches, and the patient leaves the procedure with a temporary tooth that is a copy of, and sometimes an improvement on, the replaced tooth.
- This temporary tooth fills and shapes the soft and hard tissue during healing, important factors for a high-quality implant result.
- In summary: The patient leaves the clinic with new, functioning tooth, that is an improvement on the original tooth without bad side effects.
