The short answer is it is possible! The long answer is implants can only be placed sometimes at the time of extraction. This is known as an 'immediate
implant placement’ but it can only be performed when the condition of the tooth allows. Otherwise, implants are normally done after a healing period,
from 6 to 10 weeks after removal of the tooth to allow healing and optimal outcome.
Dental implants such as All-on-4® are a great solution for people missing teeth or wearing dentures. Denture wearers often complain of the limitations of foods they can eat, poor fit and how the denture can irritate their gums. A removable denture puts a lot of pressure directly on the bone surface which, over time, invariably results in bone wear and this is why the denture starts to lose its fit.
A missing front tooth can be very traumatic. Not only are your looks affected but, as a result, your self-esteem can plummet and make you avoid work or socialising. Additionally it can present difficulties with chewing and speaking, as well as smiling.
If you have lost a tooth, particularly a front or prominent tooth, you will know it can have an impact on your everyday life and self-esteem. Eating becomes problematic and you may avoid smiling or socialising.
Choosing an implant dentist is one of the most important decisions in the steps to having an implant. This can make the difference between a successful treatment and a dental implant failure, which may happen some time later, if not done correctly.
