Intra-oral frontal photograph. Note the discoloration of tooth #22 (FDI) / #10 (US).
Tooth #22 (FDI) / #10 (US) was extracted and the socket was preserved by means of anorganic bovine bone. Socket closure was achieved by means of a connective tissue graft. Socket preservation can help reduce bone loss after a tooth extraction and enable the safe placement of a dental implant.
After 6 months of healing, the temporary crown was removed and an implant-level impression was taken.
Intra-oral photograph 3 years post-treatment. Tissues around the implant were stable.
