Q&As about Tooth Extraction and Dental Implants
While there is no substitute for a personal consultation with Dr. Peiman Soleymani, we’ve put together a few answers to a few of the most common questions about dental implants that we have received at Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center.
How soon after tooth extraction can you have an implant?
As our center offers same-day dental implants, Dr. Soleymani can emplace a patient’s dental implant immediately after tooth extraction. Every case is different and a thorough evaluation to provide the most optimal result should be done first, however. For some cases, a step by step approach will achieve the best result and it might take several months to complete the whole process. However, in many other cases, immediate implant placement may be the best option for the patient.
What happens if you don’t get an implant after tooth extraction?
For each case, alternative options should be discussed. Options such as a bridge using the adjacent teeth or a removable partial denture will be discussed depending on the conditions of the remaining teeth. However, based on evidence-based research and our experience, dental implant therapy seem to be the superior choice for most cases.
Can dental implants be done in one day?
Yes, immediate dental implants are available whenever medically appropriate. Many patients opt for same-day implants because it cuts down on their overall recovery time and provides a more convenient experience. For patients well enough to receive same-day dental implants, there is little or no increased risk for complications.
