Dental Implants for Missing Teeth
The fixed bridge is no longer the standard for replacing teeth. Why damage other teeth to put in a bridge when dental implants make perfect root replacement options that allow patients to have natural looking and feeling teeth replacements. 38th Street Dental believes strongly in the value of dental implant dentistry. Whether you are replacing a fractured molar to preserve function or have a fractured front tooth from an injury years ago, dental implants produce the most natural and sensible result for a non-restorable tooth.
In many cases, we can work in cooperation with the surgeon to have the bad tooth removed AND the dental implant placed with a crown ON THE SAME DAY! No need to wear a removable temporary or go without a tooth.
Dental Implants: Final Results
Dental implants produce excellent results. The slideshow below demonstrates the possibilities when patients elect to skip the bridge and choose the state of the art tooth replacement modality. We are very proud of the cases we have completed in the many years of perfecting our craft here at 38th Street Dental. Call today for your implant consult!
Same Day Dental Implant Temporary
This case involved fractured root canal treated front teeth. Classic sports injury as a kid, this patient needed front teeth! Dental implants with immediate temporization was the best answer to his tooth replacement challenge. Here's how the case went:
1. Patient presented about 45 minutes after the two front teeth were removed and the dental implants were placed. The surgeon left cover screws on the implants for our convenience.
2. In about 45 minutes of work, two front teeth were fabricated and installed on the implant. This is totally custom work done by Drs. Meek or Tasch chair side while the patient rests comfortably after sedation and surgery by our partner surgeons.
The picture on the right shows the temporary crowns prior to installation on the patient's new dental implants and below that photo are the temporaries ready to go installed same day on the patient's implants.
