A beautiful smile relies on having nicely aligned and healthy front teeth, but unfortunately, front tooth loss is very common. Front teeth are vulnerable to injuries that can occur during sporting activities or from some other form of trauma.
They can also require an extraction (front tooth removal) because of significant infection or decay, or when teeth are affected by advanced periodontal disease. Sometimes front teeth are congenitally missing, meaning they didn’t develop with the rest of your natural teeth in the jawbone.
Losing a front tooth can be devastating as its loss is impossible to hide whenever you talk or smile.
“Luckily, a front tooth implant can provide an excellent, long-term solution. When a front tooth is beyond saving, a dental implant is an option frequently suggested,” says Dr. Dheeraj Setia, principal dentist, and implantologist at The Dental Roots, New Delhi, and Gurgaon.
Why Choose a Dental Implant Over Other Ways to Replace a Front Tooth?
Other choices for replacing a front tooth include a one-tooth denture also termed a removable partial denture which is only a temporary solution.
Another option is to choose a dental bridge, which is fitted over the teeth adjacent to the gap. These teeth must be substantially reshaped, removing a lot of their original structure so they can be crowned, and the crowns are attached to the replacement front tooth, called a pontic.
If your remaining front teeth are strong and healthy, a dental bridge is not ideal because the adjacent teeth are significantly ground down and will always need to be protected with dental crowns.
Removing dental enamel from these teeth increases the possibility of infection and decay in these teeth in the future. The pontic of a dental bridge will only rest on the gums, and over time, your gum tissue and the bone underneath will gradually resorb so that you could end up with an unsightly gap underneath the pontic.
In the long run, a single dental implant may be less expensive than a dental bridge. Dental restorations will need to be replaced eventually, and you will need to pay for a three-tooth or three-unit bridge rather than just a single implant crown.
The top reasons people consider a front tooth implant in New Delhi and Gurgaon are:
- You do not want to harm your adjacent teeth
- You want to have the most life-like smile possible
- You have broken or severely cracked teeth.
- Missing natural teeth from decay or extraction.
- Existing dentures are inconvenient or loose-fitting.
- Tooth decay is causing bone loss in the jaw.
- Teeth are so badly damaged that you can’t eat or speak without difficulty.
- You have suffered a persistent infection and progressive damage in one or more teeth.
If you see your situation in any of the above points, it’s time to talk to our implant specialist in Sushant Lok, Panchsheel Park, or the Sohna Road branch.
The Most Natural Looking Solution for Front Tooth Loss: Dental Implant
What is the Procedure for a Front Tooth Implant?
Dr. Setia with his team of dental experts in New Delhi and Gurgaon branch always evaluate patients very carefully for suitability and will review their dental and medical history with them and will need details of any medications used, in case these could negatively impact the treatment. The dental team discusses treatment with the patients more fully and provides an estimate of a front implant tooth cost.
Step 1: Diagnostic Tests
You will need a cone beam CT scan, which generates a detailed 3-D image of your teeth and jaws, in some cases. Also, Dr. Setia might wish to take a panoramic 2-D x-ray to assess your general dental health more closely. These diagnostic tests are used to examine the quantity and quality of your jawbone more closely and to make sure it is suitable for a dental implant. All these scans like OPG (Full mouth x-ray), and CBCT scans are present in-house at our centers. The dental team might also take photos or dental impressions to create your custom treatment plan.
Step 2: Planning Implant Surgery
The information generated during the diagnostic tests is used to plan the dental implant surgery, step by step. Dr. Dheeraj will decide on the best implant system and where to situate the implant, including the depth and angulation of the implant post. The digital images will also show how your new implant tooth will look once fully restored, a vital part of the procedure since it’s necessary to ensure excellent aesthetics and functionality.
If you need a tooth removed (tooth extraction), sometimes it’s possible to do this during implant surgery, immediately replacing it with the implant post.
Also, if bone grafting is required, it’s often possible to place a small amount of bone graft material at the same time as a dental implant. All these details are discussed with the patient so they fully understand what will happen during implant surgery.
Step 3: Placing a Front Tooth Dental Implant
The procedure to place a front tooth implant takes an hour or less and can be completed using a local anesthetic, thus, making the procedure absolutely painless. Preplanning surgery ensures the procedure is quick and smooth, so healing is faster and more comfortable.
Sometimes a front tooth implant is left to heal, or a special healing cap is placed to shape the tissue around the implant. Other times, an implant tooth may be fitted soon after surgery. Whichever option is best suited for the case, Dr. Setia and his team will make a decision accordingly. You needn’t worry as we can provide temporary teeth when restoring your front teeth.
Step 4: Fitting Your Implant Tooth
If you need a temporary prosthesis (temporary front tooth), we might fit a temporary dental bridge or dental flipper that ensures the implant can be left undisturbed while it heals and integrates with the surrounding bone. When an implant tooth is fitted soon after surgery, it is usually a temporary tooth and is specifically designed for cosmetic purposes only.
You won’t be able to bite on this tooth, but it will restore your appearance during the healing period. Once healing is complete, your permanent tooth is fitted onto the dental implant and is handcrafted to provide excellent aesthetics and functionality.
The aim of our team at The Dental Roots is to make sure that patients do not walk out of the clinic without a tooth or a tooth that is crooked. Aesthetics is equally important as one’s functionality.
Step 5: Caring for Your Front Tooth Implant
Single dental implants in New Delhi and Gurgaon at The Dental Roots are quite easy to care for and can be brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth. You must commit to looking after your dental implant, brushing your teeth at least twice a day, and flossing once a day, and your regular dental check-ups and cleanings are crucial. Although your front dental implant may be artificial, the tissue surrounding it certainly isn’t.
Without the proper care, these tissues can become infected and could ultimately lead to implant failure. Dental implants are such a fabulous treatment you certainly don’t want this to occur! With the proper care, your front tooth implant should last for years or even for life.
Cost of Front Tooth Dental Implants in New Delhi and Gurgaon
The overall price/cost for front tooth dental implants depends on the specific details of each individual’s custom treatment plan and the expense of all restorations. These factors vary widely from patient to patient, making it important to schedule a personal consultation with us to receive an accurate price estimate. Dental implants cost in Gurgaon or New Delhi depends on multiple factors including:
- Number of implants
- If a bone graft is required (do not have sufficient bone to anchor the post)
- If sinus lift is required (do not have adequate levels in sinus tissues)
Led by esteemed prosthodontists and implantologist who have each completed years of advanced education (beyond dental school) and fellowship training—in addition to passing the rigorous board certification process with the American Board of Implantologist —The Dental Roots, New Delhi, and Gurgaon are considered a specialty practice.
Generally speaking, the type of specialty work we do may cost more than the average general or cosmetic dentist; however, we believe the prices we offer are fair, and the quality of our work speaks for itself. We welcome complex cases and take pride in our facility, which houses everything we need to deliver premium care from start to finish. When you are choosing a dentist or prosthodontist to perform a full mouth restoration, we urge you not to decide based on who offers the lowest price.

The success rate for dental implant treatment is very high and should last for many years. With the proper care and maintenance, dental implants at The Dental Roots can have a success rate above 90% after 15 years, but it is essential to be aware of factors that can affect the long-term success of this treatment.
