From baby tooth to implant
This patient opted for an implant versus a bridge to replace the failed baby tooth. The teeth on either side of the space were in perfect condition so crowning them to make a bridge was not a good option. After a simple removal of the tooth and 4 weeks healing an implnat was placed. An all porcelain crown completes the treatment.
