Part IV of My Dental Journey
Wednesday May 8 I will have my front tooth extracted and a bone graft placed by Dr. David McClenahan in Libertyville. There will be an eight week healing period of the graft before the implant can be placed. The plan is to temporarily bond the extracted crown of #9 by Dr. Mclenahan in the extraction site to serve as an ovate pontic to shape the bone and tissue during the healing process. I will have a flipper with a denture tooth made just in case the bonding does’nt hold for the full eight weeks. Cant be seeing patients with no front tooth!!
Keep you posted on how the appointment goes!
