Recent advances in dental implant technology and advanced surgical techniques are allowing us to now place dental implants on the same day the teeth are extracted. If conditions are right we are also able to place an immediate temporary restoration that is similar to your permanent fixed tooth replacement. This eliminates the need for a removable partial to replace the tooth or teeth while the implants heal into the bone. Not all cases allow for this as individual differences in anatomy or risk of infections may contraindicate immediate temporary restorations. Dr. Blanchard will evaluate your case and discuss with you the best options that are available to you.
