There are several options to address an aching or broken tooth, all of which can be completed in one single visit at our office. Even though we love our patients, we realize your time is valuable (and you may not love spending a lot of time in the dental chair).
The first and most conservative is a crown, sometimes with a root canal if needed. Another option is removal of the problem tooth and placing a bridge (fixed or removable) over that area, using the adjacent teeth for support. Both good choices, however in most cases, the ideal solution is removal of the problem tooth and immediate replacement with a dental implant and final crown.
The advantage of an implant placed the same day with a final restoration is twofold: that specific treatment assists in maintaining the bone and gingival architecture, yielding a more ideal result, both in function and in esthetics; and you can enjoy your restoration without having to travel to another office for part of your treatment or needing to return to our office for an additional step.
