Losing a tooth can be distressing, especially when something happens unexpectedly, such breaking a tooth that cannot be restored. It is even more traumatic when this happens with a front tooth and impacts the natural appearance of the smile. Fortunately, many patients who experience unanticipated tooth loss can have their smile restored quickly with emergency, same-day dental implants.
Patients’ who are candidates for this procedure experience several benefits with immediate tooth replacement. Most importantly, the tooth can be replaced with a dental implant and a temporary crown the same day the tooth is removed. There is less overall treatment time and this leads to a quicker result for patients.
