Immediate Dental Implants
If you have a single tooth or multiple teeth that needs to be removed, most of the time, the bone has to heal for 3-6 months before an implant can be placed. It may be possible to place a dental implant immediately at the time the tooth is removed. This can be done in certain situations where the existing tooth and implant are similar in size. Sometimes, a temporary restoration can also be placed over the immediate implant. This type of treatment can speed up the process so you don’t have to wait as long to get your tooth replaced.
