Can a Tooth be placed the same day as Dental Implants?

dental-implants-before-afterYes. With proper planning, a tooth can be inserted the same day as dental implant surgery.

Do you have to walk around without teeth for weeks, months or even years? NO!

We strive to have all of our patients leave the dental office with new youthful looking teeth.

Inserting a new tooth the same day as implant surgery improves the likelihood of having great looking gums. Beware of having dental implants without a sound plan for tooth replacement immediately. Any delay in tooth fabrication could cause permanent damage to your mouth. If you have a tooth removed without an implant being inserted immediately, you are most likely going to lose 40-60% bone volume. Do you know what that means? A shrunken face…

For more information on whether dental implants, crowns, fixed bridges or dentures are for you…feel free to drop us a note.

    treatment planning is the key for immediate implants. Better planning means less complications.

    Some precautions are needed to allow the implant to integrate successfully with the jaw bone after dental implant surgery. Therefore immediate restoration many not be possible for few cases. If the crown, bridge or denture is fitted on top of a dental implant straight away then only the dentist can provide replacement teeth to their patient on same day.

    I have gone through this kind of bad time. I met with an accident before few months. After that I had to pass some time with my front teeth. That time was really embarrassing time for me. I used to cover my smile on someone’s joke. After that I took dental implant surgery from Seapoint clinic. After having that I was looking more handsome then earlier. I was staring my face for more the two minutes.
