This patient had a retained baby canine tooth that was loose and developed decay and could not be repaired. The patient was interested in an implant and crown to replace the tooth. However, there were space problems that had to be addressed. The patient decided on orthodontic treatment (braces) to provide space for implant and crown placement.
Dr. Gray worked very closely with the orthodontist (the doctor who placed the braces) to ensure an appropriate amount of space would be made. He also discussed the position of the implant placement with the periodontist (the doctor who placed the implant) to make sure the crown attached to the implant would be in the right place to make the final smile look natural. As you can see, good communication between the three doctors resulted in a great-looking and functional outcome for the patient.
