Skip the Downtime of Missing or Broken Teeth with Immediate Implant Placement
If you have lost teeth due to decay, gum disease, or injury, it’s essential to replace that gap immediately. A hole in your mouth not only blemishes your smile but also causes various health issues, including bone loss, slurred speech, inability to eat properly, and shifting of the surviving teeth.
While there are numerous tooth replacement options, Dr. Shivani Gupta recommends dental implants because they are designed to act and function like your natural teeth. And the best part? At Peninsula Dental Implant Center, you can now get immediate dental implants, commonly dubbed “teeth in a day.” This means you don’t have to commit to months of healing to get a dental implant. You come with a missing, loose or broken teeth and you leave with an implant with a temporary tooth.
What to Expect from the Immediate Implant Placement Procedure
Immediate implant placement is when implants are immediately placed after tooth extraction. Instantaneously placing an implant post where your tooth was removed from and bone grafting material increases the success of bone formation for a stable dental implant.
When getting immediate implants, you combine two steps into one. Instead of waiting for your gums to heal to insert the implant, this is done during the same appointment. This eliminates the need to open up your gum line later to insert an implant.
In fact, patients with sturdy jawbones can have the entire implant treatment done in one day. We can place the abutment and a crown on the same day and allow the implant to heal over the next few months. During healing, we advise patients to avoid biting directly on the implant.
