In this all too common situation, this woman broke a front tooth that had had root canal therapy, a post and core build-up and a crown. Of course this happens at the worst time possible, just before Christmas 2011. Her definitive treatment will entail extraction of tooth #8, site preservation bone grafting, a dental implant and a crown. In the mean time, she needed a tooth immediately and will need one for the approx 10 months that this type of implant dentistry takes. This is the perfect situation for a dental flipper.
