Due to discoloration of both central incisor roots and tissue, after a root canal treatment in the past, this patient Annemiek hardly dared to smile anymore. Both roots could successfully be extracted and immediately replaced with our zirconia implants. Also the abutments could be placed immediately. Already very soon, the tissue looked natural and the darkish colour was completely gone.
5. Atraumatic extraction
The treatment plan was to immediate extract the central incisors and if possible to replace them with two zirconia soft tissue level implants (White Implants 5x13mm). It is very important to do the extraction as atraumatic as possible. Only if the sockets are intact it is okay to immediately replace the central incisors by zirconia implants.
6. Immediate replacement and direct loading
After removing the teeth and clean out the sockets we placed the implants and because of the good stabilisation we also immediately placed the glass fiber abutments and the temporary crowns. Annemiek left the office 1,5 hour later with two nice acrylic crowns.
The final result
A perfect bone situation & beautiful aesthetics.
Situation after 4 years of function. Beautiful pink tissues around the crowns. Really a nice and healthy outcome.
