One or few Teeth Missing
When a patient has only one or a few teeth missing as a result of failed root canal treatment, trauma, or a fracture, the tooth can normally be removed and implants being inserted on the same day with temporary crowns being fitted. This procedure is known as ‘Immediate Implantation’.
A healing period of between 4-16 weeks if recommended if:
- the tooth has been missing for several years.
- The patient is wearing a partial denture.
- The jaw bone is in poor condition.
- The teeth surrounding the implant are in a poor state.
