Why Get A Dental Implant
Whether you have a missing tooth or need to have a tooth removed and replaced, the dental implant procdure may be the perfect option. In fact, modern dental technology can restore your quality of life with teeth that are strong, look beautiful, and feel like natural teeth.
Unlike a dental bridge, when placing a dental implant, the teeth on either side of your missing tooth are left intact. As long as you are in good health and there is an adequate amount of bone to support the implant, you should expect the dental implant to last you for years, possibly even a lifetime. The dental implant will feel like your own. See implant before/after photos.
Same Day Dental Implant Replacement
The team at Guyette Facial & Oral Surgery can determine whether or not there is enough bone in place to support placing a dental implant the same day as a tooth is surgically removed. This is especially desirable for patients who need a single tooth replacement in a front facing tooth.
Same Day vs Staged Dental Implant Replacement Process
In other cases, replacing a single tooth with a dental implant may involve a little time. While the final dental implant results are well worth the time and effort that you need to put into the dental implant procedure, it is important that you’re well aware of the timeline associated with this treatment option. After the damaged tooth is removed, the jawbone is covered with gum tissue which requires time to heal. After a few months, Dr. Robert Guyette will then proceed with the dental implant procedure.
Most patients would prefer the single tooth replacement process, it creates beautiful results in a shortened time frame, in contrast to patients who do not have enough bone and need that built up before an dental implant can be placed. Should you not be a candidate for same day replacement, Dr. Robert Guyette and your dentist will work together to fabricate a temporary tooth that will stay in place until the porcelain crown can be permanently placed.
