Immediate Dental Implants
Dental Implants After Tooth Extraction
You have several options to consider for restoring a missing tooth. Dr. Alfi or Dr. Hassan will walk you through these options and examine your oral health to see if you qualify for same-day dental implants. Immediate implants function just like traditional implants, providing you with all the same health and aesthetic benefits.
Dental implants are the ideal solution for replacing missing teeth for many reasons:
- They prevent bone loss, preserve your facial structure, and benefit your long-term oral health.
- You can receive a single implant or a new arch of teeth supported by multiple implants.
- No special care is necessary—simply brush and floss your implants along with your other teeth.
- Every crown is custom-made, and your implanted teeth will look and feel like natural teeth.
- When placed by an oral surgery expert, dental implants have a high success rate and can last a lifetime with proper care.
In addition to placing single tooth implants, immediate implants make it possible for us to restore an entire arch of teeth in just 1 hour. During full-arch restoration, also known as Teeth-in-an-Hour, we will insert as few as four dental implants in the upper or lower arch, then attach a fixed denture. Full-arch restoration is ideal for patients missing most or all of their teeth, or who currently wear dentures and are looking for a healthier, more convenient alternative.
Tooth Extraction & Immediate Implant Placement
If you choose to replace your tooth with an immediate implant, we will extract the tooth and place a dental implant in the same visit. This eliminates the need for a separate implant procedure and prevents the need for you to go without a tooth. There is also no waiting period for the extraction socket to heal. Instead, you can receive your new tooth on the same day as the extraction and leave our office with a complete smile.
Local anesthesia is often used for this procedure, which will numb the surgical area, although we offer many anesthesia options to choose from. If the jaw has deteriorated, we may insert a bone graft to rebuild the jaw following tooth extraction. Once the bone graft has healed, you can return to have the dental implant placed.
After the area is numb, your surgeon will extract the tooth and insert a dental implant post into the empty tooth socket. We may attach a temporary crown or the permanent crown to the post. If we place a temporary crown, you will see your restorative dentist after the implant has healed to receive your permanent crown.
Cost of Same-Day Dental Implants in Houston, TX
Immediately restoring a missing tooth with a dental implant can save you money because it eliminates the need for a separate surgical procedure to insert the implant. The cost of implant treatment varies, and we will provide you with a cost estimate for your treatment at the first visit. Several factors contribute to the total cost, including the type of anesthesia used, the number of teeth you need extracted and replaced, if you require bone grafts, and your insurance.
