In most situations resulting in a knocked-out tooth, the resulting damage to the area is too severe to save the tooth, leading to its total loss. Sometimes, the best treatment option to prevent further dental complications is to remove all tooth and root remnants and consider your tooth replacement options. One of the most effective ways to replace a tooth is to receive a custom-made dental implant.
Placing a dental implant can be performed in a single outpatient procedure performed under deep sedation to ensure your total comfort. Following the appointment, you may feel lingering sedative effects and will need to be driven home by a friend or family member.
To place the dental implant, the oral surgeon will directly access your underlying bone and then make a narrow channel in the jawbone in order to screw in a titanium abutment. The biologically safe titanium is intended to fuse with your natural bone tissues and form a lifelong anchor for the dental crown you will receive next.
