Broken Tooth Replaced With Immediate Dental Implant -X-ray Series

Here is a really interesting case on a patient of mine from Burbank, California.

His tooth root canal cracked and was not savable.  It is not often you see a tooth that just splits in half like this image below!  A single dental implant was placed on the same day I extracted the broken tooth fragments. This is called an immediate dental implant.

Here is the sequence of events on x-ray:

  1. I’ve had some bad experiences with some dentists….now I’m kind of afraid of them. My upper right side molers are gone, and now I have a receding gum near my tooth that is now a cavity, and am really living in pain everyday, and the 2 teeth below them are hurting as well and feel like they might have gum disease….I know implant cost a lot….but I don’t have money like that and this is clearly ruining my life….for a year I haven’t slept normal yet….Im always mad, in deep thought…..I can’t talk normally anymore without responding angry. I lost slot of weight over the course of a year. Im embarrassed to laugh. My breath is always bad…..and this has put a high burden on getting work…..I need help, I’m crying here…..I’ve been in and out of emergency rooms for over a year….I take Advil all day, I’ve been prescribed terrible pain medicine that irony work, as well s as seeping pills….I’ve been on antibiotics 5-6 Times in a year…..My mouth muscles are getting distorted, my mouth is either dry, or develops excessive saliva. Now im being told to see a psychologist, but I’m in pain and am in extremely discomforting circumstances. Im an artist and dance teacher for kids and can not continue if I can’t explain things verbally and properly. Please give me a remedy.

    1. Hi Jake,

      What a heart breaking story. There is hope. First off, consider having all of your dental work done under IV sedation anesthesia. This will make 2-3 hour dental appointments feel like 2-3 minutes. I do this 1-3 times a day for the last 15 years and it really helps patients your fearful of dentistry and who have had very negative experiences.

      You may want to consider extraction of all teeth and having traditional dentures made if finances are an issue. The other much better option would be fixed dental implant Bridges such as the Prettau implant bridge. It sounds like all of your teeth are in really bad shape and may not be able to be saved. The health of our mouth plays a big role on the health of our body and of course are emotions. I have seen many patients go through tremendous positive change in their life from just having their teeth restored to health, function and beauty.

      I hope you’re able to do something soon.

  2. I am in quite a dilemma about my teeth. Thanks to your Video I am sending this email to ask your opinion.

    I have a bridge which covers one front tooth which has been on for 25 years. One of the supporting teeth has decay and I have had three different opinions from Dentists regarding the solution.
    1) Remove the bridge in one piece, save the tooth put a post in and a crown and have the original bridge replaced.
    2) Cut the bridge off remove the tooth and replace with another bridge spanning 4 teeth
    3) Cut the bridge off remove the tooth and do a bone graft and 2 implants.

    I realise that you can’t give me an exact opinion without seeing it but I would appreciate it if you would let me know what the best scenario would be out of these 3 options.

    1. Hi Donald,

      Option 3 if the two teeth are the dead center upper ones. If it is one side tooth, and one center I would need to see you to give you an exact idea.
      Option 1 is best if the tooth is savable!!!
