I Lost My Front Tooth

I Lost My Front Tooth

Posted By Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center || 9-Mar-2015

There are many unforeseen situations where we notice our front tooth or teeth are either loose or cracked. Whether it is due to an accident, trauma, a fall or due to severe decay or gum disease, we need to find help. We immediately call our dentist to learn about what to do. It is very important to seek treatment from the right dentist when we are facing such a traumatic situation. Loosening or loss of front tooth or teeth may be very emotionally upsetting for many people. This stands true because our front teeth show our personality. They show who we are, they show our smile.

Now that we have been faced with this situation, finding the right dentist may be very challenging because the process of replacing your upper front tooth or teeth may be very challenging as well. Therefore, patients looking for such treatment must find a dentist who has had enough experience in handling these type of situations. Specifically, a dentist who specializes in dental implants and is skilled and educated enough to handle difficult and challenging dental problems. Implant treatment of front teeth (which is also called implant therapy in the esthetic zone of our mouth) is very difficult to handle.

If your selected dentist is not familiar with these types of cases, the outcome can be disastrous. The gum line may recede and the bone may deteriorate and you may end up having an uneven gum line or uneven teeth in the front of your mouth, resulting in a condition where you have to hide your smile for the rest of your life. It is important, therefore, to spend a little more time and research in finding the top rated implant dentists who have had specialized training in dental implants is of the utmost importance.

Unfortunately, many general dentists advertise that they handle implant placement. But, when it comes to challenging and highly esthetic situations, general dentists do not have specialized training and skill honed due to those extra years of education to handle these cases properly. To prevent this kind of unwanted situation, the best thing to do when looking for an implant dentist is to try to find the right office who will not only provide the best quality dental implant materials but skilled surgical techniques to achieve the maximum esthetic outcome for the patients. This will lead to a result that will make many patients smile again.

At Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center, we provide the highest standard of implant dentistry where skilled techniques and thoughtful planning will provide the best esthetic result possible. Dr. Roya Mirkhan, DMD, MSD, is an Scripps-affiliated specialized dentist who provides all aspects of implant dentistry at her office located at Scripps Medical Offices in Carmel Valley, San Diego.
