Check! I have returned from the implant surgeon. He extracted my front tooth. It only took 30 minutes to complete the procedure. He put my tooth in a small box so I can take it to my orthodontist appointment tomorrow.
Things are getting serious now. There is no way back. I already made some new appointments.
- In June I will have a checkup appointment. That time the surgeon will check the bone healing. And if everything is fine the implant can be inserted.
- Then I have to wait for the implant to heal. If everything is going fine the crown can be installed after mid-September! That means I can start making an appointment with my dentist to create the final crown!
So, I will update the final treatment-plan page as soon as possible. This way you know what will happen next!
I was pretty afraid for the appointment today. I was worried about:
- What if the surgeon hit the other teeth? Breaking other teeth by accident?
- What if the surgeon broke / damaged the extracted front tooth?
But everything went fine! I look pretty silly now because of that one big gap in my front top row. Really strange feeling and sight! I think I will be happy with the braces being installed tomorrow… Or not?
