He had a Maryland bridge for his front tooth that kept falling out. It was also very unattractive to him.
Using intravenous sedation, a dental implant and a temporary crown was done. I purposely keep the edge of the temp shorter for the first three months after the surgery to prevent overloading the bone. That can cause the implant to fail.

Immediate dental implants can also replace all of your teeth at one appointment or perhaps just a section of missing or bad teeth. In the past, this used to take a year or so to complete.
After 3 months with the temp. I will remove the temporary crown and place the final porcelain crown.
Do you have any questions?
