Emergency Dental Implants (Lafayette, CO)
Posted By: admin
Dental emergencies are one of the top causes for missing and extracted teeth. Whether you were in a ski accident, injured during a soccer game, or cracked a tooth on something you ate, removing the damaged tooth is often the best first-step to recovery.
But an urgent extraction can leave you with another dilemma: finding the fastest tooth replacement possible. Fortunately, dental implants are a proven and effective treatment for replacing teeth from emergencies.
Emergency Tooth Replacement
Losing a tooth due to a dental emergency can leave you feeling embarrassed about the way your smile looks. Fortunately, Dr. Curt Hayes is a skilled dental implant expert who can help you restore your smile’s function and appearance in a predictable manner.
If you need to have a tooth removed because of an emergency, we’ll discuss how an immediate dental implant could be your best replacement option. Implants are capable of supporting single restorations (crowns) or multi-tooth bridges in the instance of more involved tooth loss.
What to Expect
Emergency dental implants may or may not be a same day procedure. In traditional situations, we want to allow time for your implant to integrate with the bone around it, which is what permanently fuses it into your mouth. But in the event of an emergency, you may have less time to work with.
During your exam or emergency appointment, Dr. Hayes will evaluate your unique situation to determine the fastest option for replacing your missing (or soon to be extracted) teeth.
A conventional implant case will usually involve at least two appointments to complete, including the surgical placement and post-operative restoration. Sedation options are available.
