What Is an Immediate Implant?
How is an Immediate Implant Carried Out?
At normal circumstances, an implant is placed 1.5 to 2 months after teeth are extracted. However, teeth can be extracted and implants are placed in the same session at some appropriate circumstances. This procedure is called Immediate Implant placement. The surgical procedure is identical to that of other implants. The only difference is that it requires experience.
Who Is a Good Candidate For An Immediate Implant?
What Should Be Done After An Immediate Implant?
If a provisional fixed denture is placed on the abutment after an immediate implant, the patient is recommended to eat soft foods. Otherwise, the only need is to take medicines regularly and to apply cold compression.
What Are The Advantages of An Immediate Implant?
The time is among the principal advantages of the immediate implant. This technique eliminates the need to wait for the healing period after tooth extraction. Since all procedures are done in the same session, the patient does not experience potential discomfort of the second surgery. Moreover, the edentulous period is eliminated, as a provisional fixed denture is placed on the immediate implant of the patient.
