Immediate Post-Extraction Implants


Loss of a tooth can be quickly resolved with dental implants. In the early days of implantology, it was common for implants to be installed months after extraction, which generated bone remodeling and a drastic reduction in the volume of bone and gingival tissues. This resulted in implants with longer crowns, with esthetic problems and difficult cleaning.

Nowadays, there is a concern to preserve the peri-implant tissues as much as possible so that the result is as natural and imperceptible as possible. For this, it is necessary that (whenever possible) the implant is installed immediately after the tooth is extracted.

The immediate installation, together with bone and gingival tissue grafts, allows maintenance of the gingival volume and often the immediate installation of a temporary tooth on the implant that will help to maintain the gingival contour of the dental element.
