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.

Benefits for your referring dentist

If your dentist performs the restorative part of the last treatment, he will not have to manipulate the soft tissues or to deal with aesthetic issues, because all the basics are already in place to finalize the case. In addition, in one session, an impression can be made that allows you to receive your ideal, final restoration within a reasonable time. While the final crown is made by a dental lab, you keep the primary tooth in place.
