Implant case

Here is an implant case that we did several months ago.
The patient came in with a broken lower molar.
She decided that instead of trying the heroic measures necessary to save her own tooth that she would get an implant placed.
The extraction and immediate implant placement went very well.
The healing took place over an 8 week period.
The abutment was in for an additional 2 weeks.
The crown was then placed this morning.
Wonderful alternative to root canals, posts, core buildups, etc.
