A dental implant is an artificial root that is placed into your jaw to attach a replacement tooth, bridge or appliance. An immediate dental implant procedure may be done simultaneous with the removal of a tooth and/or grafting procedure. A temporary crown can be placed on this immediate implant.
Immediate dental implants are not possible in all situations, but certainly will be offered if you are a candidate. Immediate implants can save time and the need for further procedures.
