Dental Implants to Replace Missing Front Teeth

September 9, 2020
Posted By: Blake Nelson

Are you missing a front tooth?  A dental implant is an esthetic solution to permanently replace teeth!

In this photo, the patient was missing his front tooth.  He formerly had a partial (or flipper) that served as a removable replacement for the missing tooth.  The patient was very pleased about the esthetic final result and excited to have a permanent tooth replacement that he doesn't need to worry about taking in and out.  

Considering a dental implant? 

If you are thinking about having an evaluation for a dental implant, call our office to set up a consultation.  At that visit, we will complete a thorough examination of the implant site and take a 3-D x-ray to evaluate the bone in the area.  Once the consultation is completed, we will create an implant treatment plan.  After the treatment plan is reviewed, we will re-appoint you for your implant surgery, where the dental implant will be placed in the site of the missing tooth.  Following implant placement, after 3-6 months of healing, a crown can be attached to the implant to permanently and esthetically replace your missing tooth.
