This patient's front tooth required extraction. The tooth was beyond saving. Inflammation from the fractured root and failing root canal are evident in this before photo. Cavities were present on the adjacent teeth.
An immediate implant was the best solution. At the time of extraction, an implant, abutment and temporary crown were placed. After healing, a zirconium abutment was made for the implant, and porcelain crowns were attached. Our patient was thrilled with the natural appearance and the convenience of immediate implant placement.
