This patient, attended to the practice complaining of a loose baby tooth. The adult tooth had never developed (this happens in 1-5% of people). Over time, the root of the tooth had shrunk and it was now wobbling.
After discussing all the options, we decided to place a dental implant. Straight after this, a temporary tooth was immediately attached to the implant, to give the patient a ‘fixed tooth in a day’. This saved the need for any uncomfortable dentures.
3 months later, we attached the final crown, with excellent results!
At Belmont Park Dental Care, we offer single tooth dental implants, multiple teeth in implants, all on 4 and teeth in day covering the Lewisham, Blackheath, Lee and Greenwich areas and the rest of London.
