Extraction with Immediate Implant and Temporary Tooth Attached to Implant

This 30 year old female presented with her upper front tooth fractured at the gum line. She wanted the tooth to be removed and an implant placed as she had been having issues with the tooth for years and wanted to have this issued resolved. The tooth was removed and an implant was placed at the same time. Additionally, in order to help maintained the gum architecture, and for the patient not to have to walk around without a tooth or with a temporary removable partial denture, a temporary tooth was placed on the implant at the same appointment. Once the implant healed, porcelain crowns were placed on both front teeth.
