Emergency Extraction & Implant Placement-Melbourne, FL
The patient presented in pain for an emergency appointment. A tooth on her upper left had become loose and an x-ray revealed a large infection. Upon examination, Dr. Patel diagnosed that the tooth was decayed, fractured and had become periodontally involved. The significant bone loss resulted in unrestorable mobility and required extraction. Once the tooth was removed, Dr. Patel used the laser for infectious tissue removal and bone disinfection. A bone graft was placed to support a replacement restoration and once the site had fully healed four months later, an implant was placed. The patient returned at a later date for the implant crown and she continued on a regular hygiene schedule that included implant maintenance.More
