Will I be without a front tooth at any time during the implant procedure?

by kelly

I am thinking about getting a single dental implant. My left upper front tooth is missing and I currently have a flipper to cover up the missing tooth. I want a more permanent solution, but am wondering - when they start the process, will I be without a front tooth at any time during the implant procedure??

I am concerned and self conscious about my smile since it is dead center of my mouth, and if I go through with this procedure I need to know that I will walk out with a tooth the same day to correct my smile until the permanent tooth has been placed.

Please advise. Thanks

it depends NEW
by: DR FARHAN DURRANI

hi ,if you want an implant retained restoration ,a fixed replacement ,it actually depends how long your teeth has been missing and what amount of bone you have in that area ,if abundant bone in missing teeth area ,it has to be evaluated by ct,teeth can be given a temprory or provisional on same day of surgery,but if no bone you have to go for resin retained prosthesis for some time,it all depends on bone under your tissue,consult a good implant dentist

pressure with implant NEW
by: Anonymous

I just finished with my implant and have pressure under the crown. Is this normal? I paid $4000 out of pocket and I am not pleased with feeling like this. I would rather have the flipper in. The dentist is saying this is normal, but it has been 3 weeks. What should I do???
