Implant-Supported Crown for Single Missing Tooth
Our standard of care for tooth replacement using dental implants is firstly to discuss your other options which include removable denture and bridgework (involves removal of natural tooth structure which is irreversible). A typical single tooth treatment plan involves placement of immediate implant and temporary crown: patient leaves the dental office with a full smile. Treatment time is one and a half hours.
Approximately four to five months later, the implant has should hve fused with the bone. We are then ready to connect the laboratory constructed crown to the implant and load the tooth (bring this implant into normal oral function).
