Over the course of his lunch hour, Dr. Hogan removed the fractured tooth and placed an implant with a temporary tooth on the same day! The patient never went without a tooth. After the implant healed and integrated, Dr. Hogan prepared and delivered 6 crowns and an implant crown. The patient desired beautifully white porcelain teeth. She was very pleased with her new smile and the ability of Dr. Hogan to restore a tooth over the implant on the day of surgery.

Is it always a good idea to replace the missing tooth immediately?
No. It is not always a good idea. The patient must understand that dental implants cannot always be placed immediately or even restored with a tooth immediately. But when it can be done then it is a better idea to replace it immediately. In those cases it is important that your implant dentist to know the reasonable success in each and every case. Dr. Hogan is an expert in implant dentistry. He knows when it is a good decision.
When the patient is compliant and has not lost substantial bone, it is usually advisable to replace the tooth immediately with a fixed, implant restoration.

This temporary will serve your cosmetic needs so that you never have to worry about your missing front tooth. We strive for long-term success while catering to your immediate needs and desires.
