Immediate Implant Provisionalization
Dental implants have progressed to the ultimate in tooth replacement. In many instances, our doctors are able to place an implant immediately upon the removal of a tooth and even create a temporary on the implant in the same visit. Our doctors have been performing immediate restorations on implants for greater than 15 years and considers it one of the most gratifying procedures performed in our practice. The psychological impact of having an esthetic tooth replacement that stays in your mouth while the implant heals cannot be understated.
The benefits of immediate implants are clear. The conventional method of therapy involves the removal of a tooth, then a healing period of 4-6 months prior to implant placement. Following an additional 6-8 weeks, the implant can be finally restored with a crown. A temporary removable appliance is worn during this healing process.
