“Hello doctor, I have a small accident. Now, I have been broken an incisor tooth, and the other one is broken a big corner. I heard that, there is a way to implant a titanium post for the incisor tooth can replace the real teeth. Should I extract all two broken teeth and then implant for incisor teeth? Please consult me. Thank you very much” (Mr. Tien Dung, Vung Tau City)
Quoc Binh Dental Clinic thank you for your trust, and very please to answer these questions as follows:
In your case, the missing tooth is located right in the aesthetic area of the teeth. Therefore, implant for incisor teeth is a great solution for your situation.
Of course, we can still choose another method of making porcelain bridges. However, the effect will not be as optimal as implantation method. This problem will be analyzed in detail after the actual examination on the patient’s teeth.
And here are some of the medical references:
- When you lose your teeth, any position (except teeth # 8), they also affect the main function of the teeth: chewing function, aesthetic function.
- In addition, bones at the missing teeth area without anchor, will lead to attrit bone.
- Plus the daily chewing force on the adjacent tooth area, the result is that the teeth become loose, flipping towards the missing teeth. Facial deformity, bite defects. Dental implant is a timely way to prevent this happening.
When you have dental implant for incisor teeth, it will not affect the adjacent teeth. And the longevity of implant teeth if properly maintained, it can follow you throughout your life.
With the case of Tien Dung, you lost a complete incisor tooth, you can choose dental implant solution for this missing tooth site.
And with the broken incisor tooth, if the broken crown has affect the pulp, you need to treat the dental pulp soon and use the method of dental porcelain crown to restore the broken teeth.
You don’t need to extract all two teeth to implant like the original question you mentioned.
The area of the front teeth is a cosmetic area, so the options chosen for dental restoration should be the best solution.
