A digital radiograph taken revealed a periapical infection in relation to roots of upper right central & lateral incisor. Also the root of the lateral incisor was deformed. Almost the entire root of the upper left central incisor was resorbed as a result of trauma. All three teeth were non-vital.
Maxillofacial surgeon & Implantologist Dr. S.M. Balaji extracted the affected teeth & the infected portion of the bone was removed with bone curette. Immediate implants were placed into the same sockets. After successful osseointegration, ceramic prosthesis were fixed to the implants. The boy was very happy to have fixed teeth with a pleasing, natural looking smile.
