This patient lost a front tooth after years of chronic infection and multiple root canals. As a result, he was worried he would never smile again. But then, following a visit to Dr. Paresh B. Patel, the option of a dental implant was selected to restore the missing tooth. A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the bone. It acts to replace the lost tooth root. Once the dental Implant has healed, it can be restored with an abutment (a connector that links the implant to the crown that one’s sees in their mouth). The treatment was carried out in two phases as the site was very infected. Conscious sedation was used to allow the patient to be relaxed and refreshed after treatment.
At Family dentistry of Frisco, Dr. Paresh B Patel is trained in the use of multiple dental implant systems. What’s more, our office is equipped with a CT scanner that allows us to taken detailed images of your existing teeth and surrounding bone. This allows us to plan implant cases with precision.
