OCO Mini Dental Implant to Replace a Missing Lateral Tooth with a Porcelain Crown

About 2% of the population has a congenitally missing upper lateral tooth.

Lateral missing

My patient after orthodontic treatment.  He is missing one of his upper lateral teeth.

He is 17 and just wants to enjoy being a kid with teeth.  The solution he has right now is a clear plastic retainer with a denture tooth in it to replace the missing tooth.  His Mom was unable to consider a traditional two piece dental implant due to cost.  In this case I think a one piece dental implant is a better service to the patient and at a much more affordable price point. 




After measuring the space we determined that a OCO 3.0mm Mini Dental Implant could be placed.  It is a one piece immediate load dental implant.




Partially seated OCO implant x-ray to confirm that it is at the correct angle.
