The Challenge: ‘D.’ came to us with the desire to replace a tooth he had been missing for over 30 years. He lost this tooth due to severe infection and associated fracture. ‘D’ wanted a dental restoration that would last a lifetime. He desired a replacement tooth that mimicked the natural, functional, and esthetic tooth he once had. The Solution: Utilizing IV Moderate Sedation for complete and safe patient comfort, ‘D.’ successfully had both a dental implant placement and zirconium crown procedure completed to seamlessly provide him a tooth replacement that will last a lifetime.
The dental implant was the most ideal non-removable or fixed option for ‘D.’. This means that neither the implant nor the tooth can be removed from ‘D.’s’ mouth. It is firmly attached and doesn’t move- just like his real teeth. He can now use this tooth to eat all the foods he loves.
Our in office IV Moderate Sedation procedures (formerly known as Twilight or Conscious Sedation) allows for our patients to complete dental procedures while ensuring complete comfort. The dental treatment is safely performed under the direct care of our highly trained team and in our certified facility. We can eliminate the fear that prohibits patients attaining the smile they deserve.
