From baby tooth to implant
When there is a missing tooth the space can be filled with a bridge or an implant. There was nothing wrong with the teeth on either side of the baby tooth, so an implant was chosen for restoration. This was a minally invasive procedure and required little to no discomfort between appointments. At Martin Dentistry we will review treatment options with you in a case such at this. The patient was happy with the choice of an implant over a bridge.
