Immediate Implant Replacement

This is the process whereby a tooth which has to be removed is done so in a careful procedure called an atraumatic extraction in order to conserve the surrounding bone and tissue available for replacement. If successful, an implant can be often placed the same day, and in turn a temporary immediate implant crown placed. This is often referred to as a ‘tooth in a day’ procedure.

Advantages of Immediate Implants

It has been shown to be the best treatment in maintaining bone and tissue and in turn yields the best aesthetics and overall success. It is also very desirable for most patients as it avoids the need for a removable temporary tooth and increases patient satisfaction.

Whilst this process has many advantages, not all situations lend themselves to immediate implant placement, and our detailed assessments and CBCT scans will determine patient suitability in advance.

Aftercare Protocols

It is a prerequisite to the success of this procedure that patients commit to maintaining a soft diet and adhere to strict aftercare protocols for up to 4 weeks after surgery.

Immediate placements will often be allowed to heal for 3-6 months prior to transfer from the temporary implant crown to the final restoration.
