Immediate dental implants involve a cosmetic procedure used for the replacement of missing teeth. An immediate implants dentist determines the implantation. However, removing your tooth for the insertion of an implant should be the last option. So, if the tooth is not severely damaged, you can have it repaired.
The immediate implants procedure restores teeth function, improving your oral health. You must understand the requirements of dental implants placement.
Dental implants placement is ideal for patients who want to extract their teeth due to:
With an appointment at our hospital, an immediate implants dentist will examine your mouth. He will also review your medical history. After that, we will determine if you qualify for this restorative dentistry process.
No patients would choose standard implants over immediate ones. The reason behind this is that immediate dental implants procedure is fast, as stated above. Unfortunately, other cases do not qualify for the dental procedure. These cases include the following:
Before beginning the immediate implants procedure, a periodontal specialist takes 3D beam images of your jaws. These images will guide the immediate implants dentist with the planning of the placement of the implant.
On the day of the implant procedure, the dentist will make the area numb. We will then extract the affected tooth and place bone grafting tissue in the socket to support the implant.
We will do the proper positioning of your dental implants and screw them into your jawbone. Finally, we will use a healing cap to close the area for healing.
There are four main advantages of immediate dental implant placement. They include the following:
Immediate implants function like natural teeth. The implants are so comfortable that you will easily forget that you have them.
You will also brush your teeth naturally without any problem. More to this, the teeth will help you maintain your natural face and smile.
If you give the immediate dental implants proper care, they can last for an extended period. Other dental placement options may require replacement, which could be more costly.
Your implants will not slip nor click while talking, eating, or laughing. Your speech will be more natural, and you will not be limited to any food.
Immediate implants will help to stimulate the growth of bones. Also, there will be no bone loss if you go for immediate implants placement after losing your tooth. Empty spaces after losing a tooth or teeth may lead to health complications like jawbone deterioration.
