Immediate Replacement

When a tooth or teeth are lost, the bone and gums supporting them begin to diminish immediately. The longer you wait before implant placement the more tissue is lost. Therefore, is it normally best to replace teeth that need to be extracted immediately with a dental implants.

Since the first use of implants in dentistry, technology has changed dramatically. Thread design and surface texture have changed as has our understanding of the processes behind osseointegration.

The result is that modern implants, in many cases, can be loaded immediately following placement. This means teeth straight away.

TEETH IN A DAY

Clearly circumstances such as the bone quality and quantity must be considered, but it is possible much more often than in the past.

Here at the Sydney Implant Institute, we understand the biological benefits of immediate replacement and realise the desire patients have that gaps be filled as soon as possible.

As such we strive to provide you with a temporary but natural looking tooth as soon as possible. We will put a tooth on an implant where possible, where the final result will be enhanced by this rather than jeopardised. This is the majority of single and multiple tooth replacement cases.

Advantages of immediate teeth

  • Usually less invasive surgery
  • Allows better gum tissue management
  • less healing time after surgery
  • Only one surgical appointment
  • Normally, no need for injections after the first appointment
