Our case of the month for September involves a single dental implant to replace a molar tooth. Molar teeth are extremely important teeth for chewing and replacing them is vital to maintain function and protect the adjacent and opposing teeth.
Single dental implants are excellent at replacing missing molar teeth. The process is usually straight forward and can be described in 5 steps:
- Careful planning
- Place dental implant
- Allow healing of 10-12 weeks
- Take impressions
- Fit implant crown
Our case is a classic case involving a lower left missing molar tooth:
Missing molar tooth- note how the bite is affected
Gold customised abutment placed within implant to secure the crown.
All ceramic zirconium implant crown. Natural, aesthetic and function regained
The impact a dental implant can have is dramatic and often life changing. The treatment is simple, minimally invasive and affordable. After all, what price would you give for a body part?
