It is possible to place an implant into an extraction socket immediately after tooth removal. The most common site for such a procedure will be near the front of the mouth where a single tooth or multiple teeth can be replaced at once.
A temporary crown can be fabricated at the time of the extraction for immediate attachment onto the implant to provide a finished look for functional and aesthetic purposes.
On top of the benefit of patients not having to transition to dentures before having an implant, this is a procedure that is quite straightforward if the patient is in generally good health. As every condition is different, the surgeon will advise on whether a patient is a good candidate for such an expeditious form of treatment during the initial assessment.
