at in Shelby Township Michigan we will typically replace broken down root canal teeth with a single tooth implant. In this case you will see an x ray where the front tooth didn’t have a post and it literally sheared off. Without any tooth above the gum line it was not possible to redo the crown.
The benefit if replacing a tooth with an implant is that an implant will be stronger than the brittle root from a root canal tooth. It is necessary to have enough natural tooth above the gum line to properly restore it so that it lasts a long time.
In this video you will see some blood as we show the implant going in and you will see the root of the tooth. A major benefit of an immediate implant is that the implant is placed at the same time as the root is removed so that he didn’t have to go without a tooth in the front.
At the end of the video he is interviewed at his one week follow up and did great. If you have this type of need and are located in the Macomb or Oakland county area of Michigan please give us a call at (586)247-3500.
