Emergency Extraction & Implant-Melbourne, FL
The patient presented for an emergency appointment because he had broken a tooth on the lower right. Dr. Patel examined the patient and reviewed his x-ray, which revealed the tooth was fractured and un-restorable. He recommended an extraction and an implant as replacement. After the tooth was extracted, Dr. Patel placed a bone graft, due to there being insufficient bone structure for an implant. Since the bone graft provided good primary stability, the patient was able to receive his implant the same day. Dr. Patel will monitor the patient's healing and in a couple months will be able to restore the implant with a CEREC crown.More
