Our patient attended our dental clinic with a very loose front tooth due to bone dissolving around it from gum disease. The patient indicated that she desired a fixed solution to replace the very loose tooth.
The gum disease was treated, and stabilised, loose tooth extracted, and site grafted to regenerate lost bone to permit implant placement. A dental implant in Armidale was placed 6 months after extraction and a front tooth secured to dental implant after 3 months. The total treatment time was 9 months.
