Case Study: The patient presented with severely decayed #22 with a hopeless prognosis from multiple perspectives. Decay can be confirmed clinically and on the x-ray. When both the tooth and root are damaged beyond repair, the best permanent replacement is a single-tooth implant. Dr. Cohen’s treatment plan was to extract the decayed tooth and do an immediate placement of an implant. If you would like to know if you would be a candidate, call us to request a consultation.
