Sometimes a tooth cannot be restored. In these instances, a permanent replacement tooth is necessary. The damaged tooth will be removed completely, and then a dental implant will be placed. A ceramic crown that fits over the implant will look and act like your natural tooth once did.
Sometimes a one-piece implant can be used, giving you immediate relief, a quicker treatment time, and reduced pain.
A one-piece implant usually requires four trips to the dentist. The final visit may require a day off from work, but you ought to be able to return the next day.
To provide our Longmeadow prosthodontics patients the best understanding of the process possible, please watch this video, which discusses many common questions our EMA Dental patients have about dental implants.
