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