A patient reported to our dental clinic wanting to remove a broken tooth in her upper front teeth region due to failed prosthesis done following endodontic therapy elsewhere. She also requested a permanent replacement of the same. She was advised to undergo an extraction of the tooth which was badly broken. Eminent Maxillofacial Surgeon and Implantologist, Dr. S.M. Balaji, renowned for his expertise in dental implantology, successfully extracted the fractured endodontically treated tooth without damage to the supporting bone and an immediate dental implant was placed right away into the socket of the extracted tooth. Following complete osseointegration of the dental implant with that of the alveolar bone cosmetically well blended fixed ceramic prosthesis loaded onto the implant which improved her smile dramatically.
Successful replacement of infected tooth with dental implant and fixed ceramic prosthesis
A 26 year old lady reported to our dental clinic with the complaints of pain in upper front region of jaw due to failed endodontic treatment done elsewhere. She wanted to replace the tooth with dental implant.
After thorough clinical and radiological examination, Maxillofacial Surgeon and Implantologist Dr. S. M. Balaji successfully planned to remove the infected teeth and replace it with immediate implants. Infected upper central incisor was extracted without any damage to the adjacent tooth structure and immediate implant was placed into the extraction socket with good stability and retention. After complete osseointegration of dental implant with that of the alveolar bone, implant was loaded with fixed ceramic prosthesis giving naturally well blended appearance.
