First things first – we need to exam you and review imagery (digital imaging of your jawbone specifically), in order to determine what type of implant will work best for your particular situation – everyone is different. Once we’ve reviewed your dental situation and have evaluated what’ll work best, we’ll looking at one of the two below implant restoration options:
Immediate placement protocols
A damaged tooth is extracted and immediately replaced during the same appointment with a dental implant.
Delayed loading protocols
A missing or damaged tooth is removed, and the site is rehabilitated for a certain amount of time before implants are placed. The appointment to place the implant itself takes about an hour, whereas the healing time for an implant to integrate into bone will take 3-6 months.
