What is Immediate Dental Implant?

Immediate dental implant can save overall treatment time up to 2~3 months compared to the conventional delayed implant. It can only be performed for young and healthy patients with healthy alveolar bone.

The recent trend on dental implant is to minimize the overall treatment time. So placing a dental implant immediately after a tooth extraction on the same day is becoming more popular. With the advancement of high quality materials and technology, the success rate of immediate dental implant is very close to that of delayed implant
Bone grafting is necessary when alveolar bone is not remained much to help dental implant settle firmly. It can save overall treatment time up to 2~3 months compared to the conventional delayed implant. Immediate dental implant can only be performed for young and healthy patients with healthy alveolar bone.

Advantages of Immediate Dental Implant

– It helps make natural alveolar shape preserving the original alveolar by performing instant dental implant.

– It minimizes atrophy of alveolar bone by shortening the period of being losing tooth.

-It fully utilizes self-healing power in the treated area and promotes bone grafting.

– It shortens the treatment period by 2~3 months.

– It shows outstanding functional and aesthetic results from accurate positioning of a dental implant by performing right after a tooth extraction.

Procedure of Immediate Dental Implant

001

The tooth needs dental implant after extracting because it is severely damaged and there remains only the root. The gum and alveolar bone around the damaged front tooth is healthy enough to proceed with immediate dental implant.

002

A severely damaged front tooth is extracted carefully without damaging gums and alveolar bone.

(after extraction)

003

Place a dental implant along with artificial bone grafting on the area where the tooth was extracted.

004

Place a dental implant along with artificial bone grafting on the area where the tooth was extracted.

Wait for 3 months until the placing dental implant firmly grafts inside bone and then place a prosthetic dentistry to complete the procedure.

FAQ

1. Can I get an immediate dental implant for a tooth with severe decay?

A tooth damaged by severe decay or gum disease may not have enough alveolar bone mass and density. In this case, an accurate assessment must be done before deciding on an immediate dental implant.


2. . Does not an implant get loose if it is placed right after a tooth extraction?

No, it doesn’t. Immediate dental implant utilizes the remained bone to fix the implant and insufficient bone is made up by bone grafting. In addition, it can be only available for patients with strong and healthy alveolar bone around the extracted tooth. This is why immediate dental implant is difficult to perform to the patients with severe periodontal disease or inflammation.


3. Can I get several immediate implants at the same time?

It is possible only when patients have healthy alveolar bone mass and density. However, in the case of damaged teeth from periodontal diseases, delayed implant is desirable to be performed 6~8 weeks after a tooth extraction.
