This patient had a fractured molar that we tried to save with a root canal. The root fracture was too large and we were unable to save and restore the tooth. So I recommended to extract the tooth and placed a dental implant. Turned out fantastic and the patient is very happy he can chew again on his left side :-)))
Today I finished up this nice case. The upper right first molar tooth was broken down and non-restorable. I first extracted the tooth and placed a bone graft. Following 3 months of healing we placed a Zimmer-Biomet 3i titanium dental implant. Then after allowing 3 months for the dental implant to isseointegrate, placed the computer scannable Encode healing abutment. Then took the final impression and delivered the screwed retained implant crown.
