You are aware that dental implants are advised following an extraction to avoid bone loss, chewing difficulties, bite problems, and other effects of tooth loss. When should they be placed, then? Let’s talk about two potential possibilities for when to place dental implants.
When an implant is placed immediately after a tooth extraction, your dentist will do so. Normally, this takes place during the same office visit, but it occasionally happens after a few extra weeks to give your gums time to heal from the procedure.
It’s crucial to remember that for quick placement, your jaw and gum tissues must be in good condition. If not, you will have to wait until your candidature improves before beginning dental implant therapy. We think it’s better to accomplish things properly than quickly.
What if you want a dental implant but are scared to undergo oral surgery? The good news is that even if you had a tooth pulled years ago, you can still qualify. Delaying the placement of dental implants does have drawbacks, though.
You will begin to experience bone loss in the extraction area after six months. Your neighbouring teeth could start to erupt into the space left behind. You could even postpone the treatment for so long that you are unable to have a dental implant.
It’s never too early to bring up dental implants in conversation. For more information, visit our page on dental implants.Back to Blog
