Older implantation techniques may require more than five months for you to receive your new tooth, with some treatments going up to two years. It has taken numerous years for a solution to be found, in 1990 Sargon Immediate Load Implant System provided the magic solution and from then on immediate dental implants could be carried out. There is no other dental implant that can provide solutions that this system provides, the system does not only provide you with a tooth at once, it also gives you a chance to have more natural looking teeth and gums than you could ever have imagined. With this type of implant there is no waiting period, you can have a missing tooth immediately replaced in a single and simple surgical procedure that is done under local anesthesia and to add onto that you can function with the new tooth normally and in the same day.
The reason behind going for an immediate tooth implant is that after a few days the gum will grow down into the socket and so this will make it difficult to put an immediate implant in place. In the same way, if you know that you are about to lose a tooth, the implant dentists advise that you go and talk to them before your tooth comes out as this will maximize the chances of an immediate implant being possible.
However, for immediate dental implants to be possible the bone around the failing teeth must be intact, the gum in the surrounding area must also be infection-free. The oral surgeon will take x-rays and CT scans to evaluate the situation, this is done during the first appointment with the consultation of your local dentist or general physician. If both these conditions are met, then it is possible to carefully extract the root and immediately put an implant directly into the tooth socket.
Once the implant is sufficiently secure in the bone a titanium post is placed and a temporary crown is put on top, the temporary teeth looks very natural and stays securely in place until the implant has healed sufficiently to put the permanent crown in place. Other than the tooth functioning immediately, immediate dental implants are associated with very little discomfort with little or no pain at all and so you will have stronger more permanent hold than any other implant.
