Single Tooth Replacement

Sometimes an implant can be placed immediately, but otherwise we wait until the socket has healed. After the implant has healed for a few months, it is then uncovered whilst a connector (abutment) is joined to it. Finally a custom made crown is connected to it, whilst ensuring that the best possible aesthetic outcome is produced. In certain circumstances an immediate implant can be placed after extraction, and a new tooth connected to it. This can only be done in certain circumstances and a number of factors are involved, one of which is an absence of infection.
