You’re not alone; this is the most common dental event in America! Whatever you do, do not have your tooth removed until an implant qualified dentist has seen it. Many times we have breakthrough technologies that can rapidly replace the tooth, preserving the socket without bone grafting. Once the tooth is removed with no implant replacement, this opportunity is lost.
If you have adequate bone – you’re in luck. Replacing single teeth is done with standard implants whenever possible especially in young people. Advances in one-piece implants allow many people to be helped with simplified standard implants. The appearance, strength, and longevity of these standard implants are equal to that of more complicated implant systems when used properly. They are more cost-effective because they do not require bone grafting or have multiple costly parts.
Traditional implant treatments can be very costly; involving invasive surgery, general anesthesia risk, and bone grafting. When these are your only alternative, we recommend them and are qualified to guide you through that process.
However, our practice philosophy is to use FDA approved modern simplified implants whenever appropriate. These implants are already designed to fit your existing bone. Most dentists are not trained in these technologies, and therefore, do not know how to recommend them. Either way, you will be assured that your implant care will be the most time, comfort, and cost-effective…since you will receive just the right care at just the right cost from the leaders in implant focused general dentistry.
