In special instances you can, but it depends on The bone any infection and the angles of the original roots. I have seen immediate implants placed in the tooth socket that left a very unfavorable angle of implant placement.
Hi, Yes, It can be done at the same day. But it depends on the specific situation that the pt has in the mouth. And can be decided only by the professional by examining the patients situation in the mouth and x-rays.
It all depends on the size of the tooth, the health of the tooth, and the ease of extraction. If the root system is much larger than the largest implant, it is best to graft the socket, allow it to heal for around 3 months, then place the implant. If the tooth is infected, many dentists and surgeons feel more comfortable with a graft before implant placement. If, for some reason, the extraction is complicated and there is more bone removed as a result, a graft would be necessary. But in the instance where the tooth is not infected, the extraction is uneventful and the socket is acceptable for an implant, then the process can be done the same day.
The primary limiting factor for immediate placement of an implant is the amount of infection in the bone. If it can be cleaned out the implant can be placed that same day.
Yes you can
Yes you can get a tooth removed and an implant the same day but there are many factors that can impact that decision. For example is the tooth infected, how much bone remains? And more. I suggest a consultation with your dentist.
Yes and no depends on the situation. But same day implants will fail much more often.
It depends on the tooth and the bone. I would say that we pull teeth and place implants the same day about 50% of the time.
It is possible but you have to be a good candidate for it.
