Yes. 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…
