Replacing a Discoloured and Infected Tooth with a Dental Implant

This patient was referred to our Glasgow practice by his regular dentist who had been treating and monitoring a heavily discoloured and infected tooth for some time.

The degree of infection was quite advanced on X-ray and it was agreed to remove it. Following a two month healing period, necessary in such cases of severe infection, we gave him a dental implant.

The implant was checked for integration after 10 weeks, making sure that the gum and bone were rendered healthy and stable. A ceramic abutment was elected to allow for a more natural appearance in the final crown.

The patient, who had been wearing a temporary denture throughout treatment, visited the laboratory to ensure the correct shades and translucency of porcelain were elected.

The dental implant, ceramic abutment and crown cost £2100 including a laboratory visit here in Glasgow.
